Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside - the woman who was killed. She's been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It's a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she'd broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she'd stopped.

I liked the ending twist. I really thought I had figured out the killer and really hadn't. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good psychological thriller 😲

To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family's remote farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations, and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than 20 years, she was host to and inspiration for the artist Andrew Wyeth and became the subject of one of the best known American paintings of the 20th century.

I have always been fascinated by this painting. My Mother told me about it and I found an article about Christina in Readers Digest. This book I know was both fact and fiction, but it was not that far from the truth. It is on the wall in my living room. Something so special about it that really touched me. A lot of people find it disturbing, but life isn't a great place for everyone. A good read!

Joe and Rose Kennedy's strikingly beautiful daughter, Rosemary, attended exclusive schools, was presented as a debutante to the queen of England, and traveled the world with her high-spirited sisters. And yet Rosemary was intellectually disabled - a secret fiercely guarded by her powerful and glamorous family.

This book showed me what the power of love and lack there of can do. What courage Rosemary showed. What a gift she gave her brothers and sisters. Also, what a gift they gave us all. The Kennedys were a special family the likes of which I doubt I will see again in my lifetime.
