Publisher's Summary

On the night their mother drowns, sisters Marnie and Diana Maitland discover there is more than one kind of death. There is the death of innocence, of love, and of hope. Each sister harbors a secret about that night--secrets that will erode their lives as they grow into adulthood.

After 10 years of silence between the sisters, Marnie is called back to the South Carolina Lowcountry by Diana's ex-husband, Quinn. His young son has returned from a sailing trip with his emotionally unstable mother, and he is refusing to speak. In order to help the traumatized boy, Marnie must re-open old wounds and bring the darkest memories of their past to the surface. And she must confront Diana, before they all go under.

    "Was ok ......... slow start ....."

    I listened to this whole book. It's about two sisters who are apart for years and end up in the same town together. I will not listen again, it was a little slow, and I had trouble listening to the entire book. I do not regret the purchase, but prefer books that have a little more drama so-to-speak and books that keep me wanting to jump in the car to turn on my iPod asap!! I have thoroughly enjoyed all other Karen White books!

    "Boring"

    I found this book very boring. The narration was very dull; it was difficult figuring out the different characters in the story. Only listen to part 1 -- I could not finish it.

    "The memory of water"

    Right from the very first few sentences I was drawn into this story,and it held me throughout.It was a very intense story,but handled with plenty of hope ,and by the last hour(chapter) I almost had to pull over I was so involved in what was happening.This was the second book I've read by this author(The Lost Hours)and I will definately be listening (reading)more.
