Jenny’s wounds have healed.An experimental treatment has removed the memory of a horrific and degrading attack.
She is moving on with her life.
That was the plan. Except it’s not working out.
Something has gone. The light in the eyes. And something was left behind. A scar. On her lower back. Which she can’t stop touching.
And she’s getting worse.
Not to mention the fact that her father is obsessed with finding her attacker and her mother is in toxic denial.
It may be that the only way to uncover what’s wrong is to help Jenny recover her memory. But even if it can be done, pulling at the threads of her suppressed experience will unravel much more than the truth about her attack.
And that could destroy as much as it heals.
MY ONE COMPLAINT! THIS BOOK SHOULD CONTAIN A TRIGGER WARNING ON THE OUTER DUST JACKET AND THE FIRST PAGE OF THE BOOK. THE SEXUAL ASSAULT IS VERY GRAPHIC.
It takes a little while to get used to the fact that this story is told by the psychiatrist involved in treating Jenny. There are other sub threads about other characters running through the story that make things a little difficult to keep up with at times. It takes a lot of focus to understand what is going on.
That being said, the writing draws you in and leaves you speculating upon the culprit and every guess is wrong until the end of the story. The author has breathed into life an incredible and heart rending story of a young woman’s recovery from a brutal assault.
A four out of five star read.
I am profoundly grateful to both Netgalley and Harlequin UK for my copy of this book.
