Publisher's Summary

At 29, Hannah Garretty is pursuing her lifelong dream of being a paid photographer. But in a curl of circumstance, she's snatched from her bohemian life on the island and vanishes into a forest lair, where unspeakable things have happened... and will continue to happen.

As Hannah grapples with her captivity and the knowledge bestowed to her by a special gift, we catch glimpses of her past life, before the abduction, through the lens of her childhood on the mainland and the last time she came face to face with her own mortality.

The story is visceral and powerful, exploring the duality of our consuming lives versus our feeling lives, our purpose in being, and whether there is a scrap of light in anything as dark as Hannah's ordeal.

    "Entertaining and suspenseful"

    This book reminded me a bit of Stephen King's earlier works. The main characters, Hannah, is already more comfortable living in her own mind than in the outside world. Her life seems to shift through shades of reality. When she gets a fleeting glimpse of a young girl with unwashed hair through a car window, it launches her into a nightmare of kidnapping, confinement, and torture. The characters are very real and well-drawn...and though only a short period of time is covered in the novel, the listener will walk away knowing years of the characters lives. Very tense, great for fans of thrillers and horror alike.
