When Fern Douglas sees the news about Astrid Sullivan, a thirty-four-year-old missing woman from Maine, she is positive that she knows her. Fern’s husband is sure it’s because of Astrid’s famous kidnapping—and equally famous return—twenty years ago, but Fern has no memory of that, even though it happened an hour outside her New Hampshire hometown. And when Astrid appears in Fern’s recurring nightmare, one in which a girl reaches out to her, pleading, Fern fears that it’s not a dream at all, but a memory.

Back at her childhood home to help her father pack for a move, Fern purchases a copy of Astrid’s recently published memoir—which may have provoked her original kidnapper to abduct her again—and as she reads through its chapters and visits the people and places within it, she discovers more evidence that she has an unsettling connection to the missing woman. With the help of her psychologist father, Fern digs deeper, hoping to find evidence that her connection to Astrid can help the police locate her. But when Fern discovers more about her own past than she ever bargained for, the disturbing truth will change both of their lives forever.

My thoughts
Would I recommend it? Yes
Would I read more by this author? Yes
First off I want to say thank you to the publishers Atria (Simon & Schuster)for inviting me to read and review it because I had no idea she was coming out with another book, because at the time I got their message I only know of her one book she wrote last year The Winter Sister which I read and review as well and loved , in fact out of the two  I would have to say that this one is my favorite simple because of how a bit dark and twist it was. And wow the way she wrote the father in this one , his not someone I would want for a father or for a family member  in fact I wouldn't want to be in the same room with him. This story was dark and disturbing,as well as well as twisted and made me set on the edge of my bed because I couldn't stop reading it , which each of the page I had to know what was happening next. It also had me wondering if Fern really knew Astrid or if it was all in her head , and at times made me uncertain of things that she thought she was remembering. But it also had me asking what if they was actual memories then maybe she just leave them be, because we all know that when that type of door is open it can never be closed and bad things happen. On that note I think you should pick this one up and read it for yourself and see what happens, and I also want to thank NetGalley for letting me read and review it as well.
