Selected by Indie Booksellers for the January 2011 Indie Next List
“This atmospheric and beautifully written debut opens with a woman who is heading out to face an unnamed crisis with 'the strength of a woman who has everything to lose.' As the story slowly builds with delicious tension, alternating between present and past, the reader is taken on a powerful journey. Revealing that a tragedy has occurred, Kelly relentlessly builds the psychological pressure between the vividly developed characters to a powerful and surprising ending. This book is about love and pain and the lengths to which a woman will go to protect her family.”
-- Lanora Hurley, Next Chapter Bookshop, Mequon, WI


Description
In her compelling debut, Erin Kelly evokes the brooding atmosphere of "Rebecca" in a contemporary and completely convincing novel of tangled family desires.--"New York Times"-bestselling author Sara Paretsky.
