Enter the perfect, loving, gentle husband to take her home and take care of her. Something isn't right? Why would a woman with such a perfect life need so badly to get away from it that she would forget even her own daughter? And where is her daughter anyway? And why is she always so tired? The maid will not let her out, and tells all her friends she is visiting her brother in San Fransico. Her husband keeps her under sedatives because she has such a violent history. Is she really the person he says she is? Can she figure it all out before she ends up in a mental hospital?
The review of this Book prepared by Helena

Jane Whittaker has awakened to a nightmare. She doesn't know her name or her age. And she even forgot what she looks like as well. Frightened and confused, she wanders the streets of Boston wearing a blood-soaked dress-and carrying $10,000 in her pocket. Her life has become a vacuum, and her past vanished completely. And all that remains is a handsome unsettling stranger who claims to be her husband, whispered rumors about a dead child whom she cannot recall; and a terrifying premonition that something horrible is about to occur.
