Publisher's Summary

A chance encounter sparks an unrelenting web of lies in this stunning new psychological thriller from national best-selling author Mary Kubica.
Heidi Wood has always been a charitable woman: She works for a nonprofit and takes in stray cats. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young woman named Willow and her four-month-old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal - or worse. But despite her family's objections, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home.
Heidi spends the next few days helping Willow get back on her feet, but as clues into Willow's past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she's willing to go to help a stranger. What begins as an act of kindness quickly spirals into a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.

Not worth your time.

I spent the entirety of this book telling myself to have an open mind; scolding myself every time I felt the author was "reaching" for big descriptive words at a time when simplicity could have worked better; knocking myself down a peg when I felt I should just stop listening, wasting away those precious hours I spent listening to this book.

I felt the book was pointless, depressing, weak, trying-too-hard-to-impress. Overall a giant waste of my time.

Mundane

I struggled to finish this book. The extremly slow unwind of the story was just too much for me.

Brilliant!

Any additional comments?

A brilliantly written tale of of human fallibility, evil, damage and vulnerability. Each character, the troubled and the reprehensible, were brought fully to life. Not one to read when feeling fragile in any way.

I'm not good with American stories but this gripped me

This book got better and better as it went along- i loved the narrators which is difficult - struggle a lot with strong accents. But it was moulded and folded and unfolded professionally - a sign of a good book for me is 'un-put-down-able' and I was listening wherever I went! Good on you Mary Kubica and your narrating team. 5* from me!

Couldn't stop listening

Couldn't stop listening. Well written and narrated. Audible recommends this to people who enjoyed Gone Girl and it's true - some great twists and turns told from different perspectives to piece together this story.

Thoroughly enjoyable read

I loved the gradual development of these interesting and believable characters and the way it was written from the three different perspectives. Very well done.
