Publisher's Summary

In this suspenseful novel, bestselling author Christina McKenna questions whether anyone can ever truly be free of the darkness within us all.

Rita-Mae has lived in fear for as long as she can remember. Fear of being alone, fear of her past and, above all, fear of her husband, Harry. Until she spots an advertisement for a vacant cottage in a small town in Northern Ireland. She makes her escape filled with hope, ready to start a new life in a new home, free from the pain of her past. But her place of refuge may not be as safe - or as anonymous - as she thought.

In another small town, Dorrie wakes up unaware of where she is or how she got there. Adrift in a world for which she has no explanation, she needs to find answers quickly - before her shadowy past catches up with her.

Walled in by secrets and with no one to trust, both Rita-Mae and Dorrie are unsure how to move forward. Can each woman face her inner demons and confront a menacing presence from the past once and for all? Or will the past unravel their second chance at life?

woeful performance

Alana Kerr Collins over dramatized her narration so much I couldn't listen for more than 6 minutes. It was cringeworthy. I got so annoyed by it, I marked the book as finished and tried to delete it from my phone. total waist of money never mind the 6 minutes of my life that I won't get back.

Lots of twists and turns. I enjoyed the story and had thought I could predict the ending, but was wrong.

Reader

The story is good. The reader has a pretty voice but the repetitive rhythm that she uses is extremely off putting so much so that I almost had to abandon the book.

Irish rambler

I enjoyed the narration of this book and some of its settings. It did have a lot of negative material and became too outlandish in its plot. It over-simplified such extreme circumstances.

Hard to follow

Tried to persevere but couldn't finish this book as storyline was too disjointed. Not good.
