Publisher's Summary

It’s been 30 years since the terrifying abduction of twin sisters Rebecca and Molly Underhill by a deranged man who lived in a cabin behind their house. Fearful of retribution against their family, the girls kept the incident secret. Rebecca, now a painter and art teacher, suddenly begins getting mysterious text messages. Is Molly - long lost to cancer - trying to communicate? It couldn’t be their attacker from so many years ago; he was imprisoned for a similar crime at about that same time. Surely he’d still be in jail or dead by now - wouldn’t he?

When one of Rebecca’s art students - an autistic savant - gives her a series of paintings, Rebecca realizes the paintings’ scenes match the nightmares she’s had every night since the horrific ordeal three decades earlier.

Escape into a pulse-pounding story that poses the question: What if you were forced to relive the most horrifying moment of your life?

So bad it was painful.

Any additional comments?

I am thankful this book was free. I gave up on it in the middle of the climax. I tried to overlook the over dramatic and terrible writing and give the author the benefit of the doubt that some wonderful clever twist would make the seemingly absurd plot less silly at some point. It became clear towards the end that, no, this book was just truly horrible and got worse and worse as it went along and someone should have stopped the author from publishing it. Instead of wasting any more time finishing it, I read the negative reviews and verified that there were no redeeming qualities waiting for me at the end of the story. I have NEVER given up on a book that I had already given so much time to until now. As an artist myself, I hate to leave bad reviews, but this author really needs to find a different creative outlet than writing. Or at least spare the public from it until he has developed his craft quite a bit more. The narration was tolerable at first. By the middle/end it became SO over dramatic I started to feel physically ill. Don't believe the positive reviews. They were either written by 13 year olds or paid for or fake. Either that or the world truly is spiraling into the horrible prophecies foretold in Idiocracy.

A good book, a spectacular performance

There is a formula to this sort of book. Everyone knows it. Thousands of painters portray the same still life, but the true artists shine through, like a speck of sunlight on the apple. This book contains many beautiful, thoughtful specks, and although it contains few real surprises, the artful brush strokes of the author make it superb reading...or listening. The voice actor featured in this particular performance is uniquely gifted. She reads each line as though she is relating her memory of the events for the first time. Absolutely gripping.

The remains

This was an excellent story. I would like to read it instead of listening to it

It started out so good

And then kept me hooked, waiting for the big reveal which just fizzled. It had potential but never got there.

I tried

I finished this book, barely. I really wanted to like it, but the plot seemed really contrived and forced. The characters were hard for me to like--the ex-husband was so cliché, I literally winced. The most surprising thing about the ending was that it wasn't a surprise at all. I guess I'm used to so many of the stories I listen to having a big twist at the end that I didn't expect one to actually play out as I had imagined. The narrator was fine but not super enough to save a mediocre book.
