Editorial Reviews

"A taut, absorbing novel about a woman who must solve a haunting mystery in order to move on with her life.. The mystery of why Jennifer vanished becomes even more puzzling as new facts come to light, and Kathryn''s eventual insight that some ambiguities are part of life brings depth to the narrative. Kline''s edge-of-the-seat denouement ties up the plot threads with dexterity and also allows for a plausible future for Kathryn herself." (Publishers Weekly)
