Haunting and Powerful
This unsettling follow-up to Laura McHugh's impressive debut, The Weight of Blood, is a poignant meditation on memory, loss and the difficulty of returning home. It's central mystery is compelling but Arden's pursuit of closure and her efforts to adjust to her return to Keokuk, Iowa play an equally meaningful role in the story, raising it considerably above the average thriller or mystery novel. With two excellent novels under her belt, Laura McHugh is an author to watch!
Sarah Scott's narration struck the perfect tone for the book.

Good story - excellent narrator
This story was an attention grabber with a lot of suspense and was hard to put down. By the middle I ended up listening through to the end. I thought I had the "what happened to the twins" question figured out and was surprised at the end. Will look for more by this author and narrator.

Suspenseful to the end
I enjoyed this book, good and suspenseful. The only thing that I didn't enjoy was the feeling that it wasn't good if you was a Christian. Liked reading about Keokuk, Ia even though it was av fictional story.
