Perpetual optimist Claire Harte-Mathias and her disabled husband, Jon, run a successful foundation to help people with spinal cord injuries. One night Claire witnesses a woman leaping to her death from a bridge, and the tragedy sparks murky childhood memories that leave her confused and frightened. As Claire becomes obsessed with trying to understand the power the haunting memories have over her, she's torn between blocking them from her mind entirely and trying to unearth their source. Putting both her marriage and her self-image on the line, she struggles to uncover the truth - only to discover that the past, present, and future are connected in ways she never dreamed.

"Though there's a comforting quality to Chamberlain's set pieces...." (Publishers Weekly)
I have read and or listened to all of Diane Chamberlain's books, and have never been disappointed before. I found it hard to connect with the main female characters, but attribute a lot of the reasons why to the narration. I found the reader was very childish when the characters were in conversation with one another. It really distracted me from the story. I kept rolling my eyes. I story it's self was just so so. There are so many other Chamberlain books that are amazing, if you are new to her go read another. If you are a huge fan like myself, no matter how bad a review I'm still going to listen no matter what. Just don't say you were not warned when you realize this book is not that great and the narration is even worse.
The book was very enjoyable but wouldn't listen again, i kept getting frustrated with the main sister Claire on her denial of the truth
The plot was interesting once you are able to understand why Claire gets close to Randy and once her flashbacks start
Vanessa for sure
I had the hardest time getting through this book. I couldn't get passed the voice of the reader. I had negative emotions toward the main character, glad it's over. I'm a fan of Diane Chamberlain, but will look at narrator from now on before I purchase the book.
An amazing book by an amazing and never disappointing author...thank you so much! Can't wait for your next book!
