Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was born in 1939, in Bielitz, a town close to the Czechoslovakian border. When I saw people deserting my town, I realized how close we were to the Czechoslovakian frontier. #2 On September 1, the day the war began, I was in my parents’ bedroom watching them. The red glow of the fires outside made Papa look strange and unfamiliar. He spoke to me, telling me to call the family and find out what they were doing. #3 The next morning, the sun was shining brightly in my room. The fall flowers in our garden were in full bloom. The trees were laden with fruit. Everything was as it had always been, and yet, the night before, I had seen something in my parents’ faces that hadn’t been there before. #4 The morning after the invasion, I saw my neighbors celebrating with German soldiers. I did not understand what was happening. I was 15 years old, and I had a strong feeling that our lives were no longer our own, but in the hands of a deadly enemy.

My emotions have been bled onto the pages and a complete outpouring of grief has been displayed for all to see. I am bare and my armor has been shed. There is no guard up. My psychological ups and downs and emotional swings are available for you to judge. Am I heartbroken or crazy or both? Is it normal to lose your mind when you lose your love? That's up to you the reader to interpret in these writings. It is meant to be heavy, and perhaps difficult, to digest. An exercise in mental fortitude that will hopefully strengthen the resolve of the reader should they conjure the energy to read it through. If you find it churns your stomach, wrenches your heart, or moves your soul - good - that is the point. It is meant to embroil you, stress you, and draw up emotions that we normally lock away and never address. Those very same emotions are what I consider necessary to understand unconditional love. Love is a whirlwind and you should prepare to open your sail into the biggest gusts of air without fear. Read without trepidation.

From the international bestselling author of Unraveling Oliver comes a “dark, captivating psychological thriller” (People) lauded by A.J. Finn—#1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window—as “extraordinary…crackles and snaps like a bonfire on a winter’s night.” My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it. On the surface, Lydia Fitzsimons has the perfect life: married to a respected judge, mother of a beloved son, living in the beautiful house where she was raised. That beautiful house, however, holds a secret. And when Lydia’s son, Laurence, discovers its secret, wheels are set in motion that lead to an increasingly claustrophobic and devastatingly dark climax. For fans of Ruth Ware and Gillian Flynn, this is “a devastating psychological exquisitely uncomfortable, utterly captivating reading experience” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
