Ruth Hartland is an experienced psychotherapist, treating patients who have suffered trauma. She is also a mother who has had her 17-year-old son disappear without a trace, seen her marriage fall apart and had her relationship with her son’s twin sister affected. An unstable new patient, who looks like her missing son, causes her to cross boundaries and affect her professional judgment. Her personal grief at her son’s disappearance set in motion events that begin to spiral out of control. This is a story about love, loss, and motherhood with the elements of a thriller, as well. Great summer read.
