Classic suspense novels leave you rattled and feeling less sure of the world around you. With its surprising plot twists this unsettling novel delivers the same after effect. Annie Goodman flees her unfaithful husband. She and her child run to the home of Annie’s twin sister, Julie. Vulnerable Annie becomes a victim of identity theft. While she is embroiled in this new drama, her sister and daughter disappear. Can Annie reclaim her identity and her family? Renata Friedman narrates this tense and vividly drawn drama. Friedman fleshes out sad and fatigued Annie with her succinct pronunciation and bell-like timbre. Friedman’s calm emotionality helps the listener to join the overwhelmed but determined Annie in her fight to regain her child and her life.
When she discovers evidence of her husband's infidelity, Annie Goodman's life is thrown asunder and she flees with her young daughter to the one person she has always trusted: her twin sister, Julie. In this safe harbor, the sisters quickly become as close as they were as children. But when Annie tries to get a job, her safe harbor turns rocky - she's arrested, her credit cards are stolen, and her very identity is in question. Seeking solace with Julie, she finds her twin sister gone, along with her daughter. It soon becomes clear that nothing Annie previously believed is certain - and that she is the only one who can find her child and reclaim the life that someone has stolen from her.
