The lives of a middle-aged doctor and a love-struck young
woman intersect across time in Sleeping in Eden, Nicole
Baart's haunting novel about love, jealousy, and the
boundaries between loyalty and truth.On a chilly morning in
the Northwest Iowa town of Blackhawk, Dr. Lucas Hudson is
filling in for the vacationing coroner on a seemingly
open-and-shut suicide case. His own life is crumbling around
him, but when he unearths the body of a woman buried in the
barn floor beneath the hanging corpse, he realizes this
terrible discovery could change everything. Lucas is almost
certain the remains belong to Angela Sparks, the missing
daughter of the man whose lifeless body dangles from a rope
When Angela went missing years earlier, he and his wife
never really believed she was just another teenage runaway.
Fueled by passion, Lucas resolves to uncover the details of
Angela's suspected death, to bring some closure to their
small community and to his wife. But his obsession may not
be able to fix what is broken, and Lucas may be chasing
shadows... Years before Lucas ever set foot in Blackhawk,
Meg Painter met Dylan Reid. It was the summer before high
school and the two quickly became inseparable. Although
Jess, Meg's older neighbor, was the safe choice, she
couldn't let go of Dylan and the history they shared no
matter how hard she tried.
Caught in a web of jealousy and deceit that spiraled out of
control, Meg's choices in the past ultimately collide with
Lucas's investigation in the present, weaving together a
taut story of unspoken secrets and the raw, complex passions
of innocence lost
