Summary
"The Victorians used to call their mental hospitals stone mothers," I say. "They thought the design of the building could literally nurse the sick back to health." Marianne grew up in the shadow of the old asylum, a place that still haunts her dreams. She was seventeen when she fled the town, her family, her boyfriend Jesse and the body they buried. Now, forced to return, she can feel the past closing around her. And Jesse, who never forgave her for leaving, is finally threatening to expose the truth. Marianne will do anything to protect the life she's built; the husband and daughter who must never know. Even if it means turning to her worst enemy... But Marianne may not know the whole story - and she isn't the only one with secrets they'd kill to keep
Summary
Decades after fleeing her home and the body she helped bury, Marianne resolves to do anything to protect the life she has built against an ex's threats about coming forward
