Publisher's Summary

It begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, where everything seems picture perfect.
Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, prefers to pretend this horrific event did not touch her carefully constructed world.
As Tom and Charlotte seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town - or perhaps lives among them - drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

Indescribable but i will try...

This is the type of story that one would like to share in a book club with others who have already experienced its power.

This story is so multifaceted and complex. The people involved are so.... human.

The emotions that it evoked in me completely ran the gamut between despair, Fury, empathy, forgiveness, and love.

Needless to say, Wendy Walker explored a territory which was very in-depth. She could have settled for simplistic and shallow. She could have given it a "happy ending" but instead she achieved a good ending. She could have given it heroes and demons. She did none of those things and this is what makes this book great!

I now have a new favorite writer. I also found a hero of a narrator in Dylan Baker,as he set the tone which was perfection.

Disturbing in a bad way

I listened to this book even though I really didn't like it. The narrator or main character was this psychiatrist who was very manipulative although he would continually say how he was helping people. The graphic rape details were explicit. It just felt extremely creepy to be listening to this book. It felt like an invasion of the the rape victims privacy. I couldn't finish it. I just didn't like it at all. The ONLY thing I liked was the psychiatric terminology about different Axis disorders.
