What did you like best about this story?

I loved how she switched between the 1930's and present, just kept you wondering how they were going to come together. This was one of the best books I have listened to. Now I have a new author, I will probably buy all of hers.

What about Emily Rankin and Catherine Taber ’s performance did you like?

They were so good, I have listened to many audio books, they were the best yet.

As it definitely was not my favorite of the series I love the storyline I just didn't like the girl reader reading a guys voice as everyone else said. The Navy seal was perfect for ice and I was a great storyline

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives - but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her.

But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge....
