Meredith thinks she is the reincarnation of Cara, a young woman murdered 30 years ago. It's her belief because that is what her mother believed before she walked out of the mental hospital and disappeared a very long time ago. Her mother, Becca, was so convinced she videotaped her young daughter. So what was the tie between Becca and Cara .. and now Meredith? Is it true ..or just the ramblings of her mentally ill mother? To find the truth Meredith must search through a past that is not her own. The problem is, she’s not the only one looking… This is a debut novel, very well written. Characters are fully defined and unforgettable. The story is told from several view points. Chapters alternate from 30 years ago and the people involved in that time period to today with Meredith searching for the truth. Twists and turns will keep the reader turning the pages. The ending was quite a surprise! This is definitely a psychological thriller worth reading ... and an author to watch. Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / Netgalley for the digital copy to read.
