Nine years ago, English Professor Emma Greene was at her rural home with her five-year-old daughter while her husband was away. That night, she encounters a group of college students trespassing on their property. The ensuing confrontation changes her family forever.
Brodie writes a haunting story that is unveiled piece by piece as Maggie, the daughter who is now in high school, tries to get rid of the recurring nightmares she has of the event and attempts to understand what really happened that night and whether she can accept the past and put it behind her. This is a page-turner that will be hard to put down.
