“A whispering voice at the back of my mind reminds me that I’ve been this way for some time. Dead, that is.”

The dead have a very broad view of the living, of actions performed out of sight, of thoughts believed to be private. I would know. Losing both parents is a trial no child should endure, and Marina and Dylan have endured enough. They deserve the one thing I could never give them: a mother’s love.

A mother’s love, and the truth.

My children have believed a lie about me for years and years. After all this time I can still feel their hurt in my heart. But the tether holding me to them is frayed from years of neglect, and I have to find a way to make my confession before it snaps.

But when the truth comes out, what other beasts will I unleash?

“Why do we lie to the children?” someone asked me once.

“To protect them,” I answered.

How terrible it is that they need protection from me.

    Publishers Weekly

    RT Book Reviews

  • “This deceptively layered story of mental illness, lies, infidelity, and forgiveness is served up with a supernatural twist that will at times confuse the listener. Yet the complex mystery and suspense are satisfying…Gilbert shifts between the living and the dead with skill. Her portrayals of twenty-year-old Marina and her agoraphobic sixteen-year-old brother project a convincing sense of loss and grief. With flawless pacing, Gilbert reveals a shocking family secret that adds to the suspense-filled drama and theme of forgiveness.”
