Sarah Phillips longs for the simple life – a job to fill her days, a home to return to and a small amount of steps to count between the two. Seriously injured in a car crash when she was thirteen, Sarah has no memory of her childhood or the family she lost.
Ellie Wilson remembers her own past only too well, the cruelty she suffered at the hands of a mother that abused her and a father who couldn’t protect her. She finds Sarah fascinating, a mirror to the life she never had.
But as curiosity spills over into obsession, and as Sarah’s world begins to unravel, Ellie moves ever closer.
I was immediately interested when I read the first paragraph. However after that there were a couple good spots but it just didn’t do it for me. It was slow and I feel like the situations that played out only played out to again reintegrate the original problems. If less was spent on the intial problem and more details were put into after the realizations then I feel like it would have turned out a lot better. I just didn’t care for this one. I wish I would have liked it more but I guess we can’t like all the books we read. 😦
