Veterinarian Rachel Goddard's world begins to fragment on the rainy night
a dog is rushed into the clinic after being struck by a car. The owner's
young daughter cries for her mommy and Rachel finds her memory rushing
back to a day in her childhood when her sister was crying for her mother
while thunder boomed and rain poured down on them. The memory is vivid
and Rachel can't understand the anguish she feels. She starts to seek answers
as more memories come crashing back but she isn't finding them thru her
sister or her mother, Judith. Judith's unspoken rules forbid questions
about the family history or the girl's long dead father. Rachel begins
a quest into her own memory as well as half way across the country and
uncovers a truth that will shatter her world.
A stunning debut from first time Author Sandra Parshall. Tightly written,
breathtaking suspense filled mystery that takes you on a roller coaster
ride from beginning to end. Memorable characters pull you into the story
with skeletons rattling in every closet. As the families deepest, darkest
secrets begin to emerge, the suspense just keeps building until it explodes
off the page in this delightful psychological thriller that will keep you
up late into the night until you have finished every last page.
