Suspense Psychological | Mystery Historical
From the author of The Uninvited comes a haunting
historical novel with a compelling mystery at its core. A
young child psychologist steps off a train, her destination
a foggy seaside town. There, she begins a journey causing
her to question everything she believes about life, death,
memories, and reincarnation.
In 1925, Alice Lind steps off a train in the rain-soaked
coastal hamlet of Gordon Bay, Oregon. There, she expects to
do nothing more difficult than administer IQ tests to a
group of rural schoolchildren. A trained psychologist, Alice
believes mysteries of the mind can be unlocked
scientifically, but now her views are about to be challenged
by one curious child.
Seven-year-old Janie O’Daire is a mathematical genius, which
is surprising. But what is disturbing are the stories she
tells: that her name was once Violet, she grew up in Kansas
decades earlier, and she drowned at age nineteen. Alice
delves into these stories, at first believing they’re no
more than the product of the girl’s vast imagination. But,
slowly, Alice comes to the realization that Janie might
indeed be telling a strange truth.
Alice knows the investigation may endanger her already shaky
professional reputation, and as a woman in a field dominated
by men she has no room for mistakes. But she is unprepared
for the ways it will illuminate terrifying mysteries within
her own past, and in the process, irrevocably change her life.
