Publisher Description

A stunning work of literary suspense by the the acclaimed author of All Things Cease to Appear.

“The memory starts here, in my apron pocket, with the gun.”

Lydia Haas is devoted to Jesus, her church, and her husband. Only recently, after it’s too late, has she understood how much she has sacrificed to all of them.

Michael Knowles is a rising young doctor, an OB/gyn at a prominent hospital. A man committed to his principles, to rescues with uncertain outcomes; to his wife. The life they’ve made. He never intended to have to make a choice.

Annie Knowles is the “doctor’s wife.” The first time she walked into their 1812 Federal-style home in High Meadow, an idyllic town in upstate New York, she thought she’d be happy there forever. But that dream wore thin, and another man—a colleague at the local college where Annie teaches—is insinuating himself slowly, surely, passionately into her life.

Simon Haas’ paintings of his wife Lydia made him famous. The story behind those paintings, and behind his marriage, is not one Simon chooses to tell. Until he meets Annie Knowles.

Elizabeth Brundage’s debut work of fiction is the story of two couples and the cataclysmic intersection of their lives.

Great read.

This was a well written book. It takes you though out each characters point of view, and very suspenseful. If you like to read about suspense with a hint of drama this will be a great book. Although 12 bucks is a bit much for a digital copy.

Great read

I really enjoyed this book. The character development was interesting, as well as the story. I thought it was going to be a romance novel, but it had mystery and suspense. Definitely worth the read.
