In this darkly riveting debut novel - a sophisticated psychological mystery that is also an heartbreakingly honest meditation on memory, identity, and aging - an elderly woman descending into dementia embarks on a desperate quest to find the best friend she believes has disappeared, and her search for the truth will go back decades and have shattering consequences.

This book was excellently performed, however the story line just kept going on and on and on. Sadly I lost interest after the 6th chapter and the same phrases are repeated so much that I eventually gave up. The book is well intended, but just not for me.

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

The story line was enjoyable, however just as the story was picking up it ended without complete closure. Disappointed in the end, but still a good book.

Why had God placed this life in front of me? To start with, the Lord never gives you more than you can handle. I would be born to parents Joyce and Denny Grant, married at ages 17 and 23. It was a match made by way of Denny's maternal aunt, Kitty. In 1956 she was my mother's roommate in Camarillo, a California insane asylum. This marriage was a slice of hell, giving birth to three children. Joyce would kill her second-born, Jimmy, followed by her hanging me as a two-year-old, three years later.

This was a great gripping book. The honesty in which it was told was humbling. It’s amazing how people can survive such tragedy and have such an impact on others just by telling their story.

What do we really know about modern practicing polygamists - not fictional ones like the Henrickson family on HBO’s Big Love? We’ve seen the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the news, the underage brides in pioneer dresses on a Texas ranch. But the FLDS is just one of many groups that have broken with mainstream Mormonism to follow those parts of Joseph Smith’s doctrine disavowed by the LDS Church. Gaining unprecedented access to these communities, journalist Sanjiv Bhattacharya reveals a shadow country....
