From the outside looking in, Sibley Sawyer has a perfect life. As a successful attorney, she’s worked hard to get to the top of her game—but when her personal and professional lives implode, Sibley looks for a way to turn the page.
Unable to shake the tragic circumstances that caused her to flee her rural Midwestern hometown, Sibley wants nothing more than to reunite with her estranged mother, Deborah, and bury their past tensions.
But as she reenters the life she left behind, she realizes her mother isn’t the same person she remembers, and she’s not the same daughter either.
As both women struggle to piece together a tangled web of deceit and lies, and the shocking circumstances that caused Sibley to leave in the first place, it becomes clear there are secrets rooted deeper than either mother or daughter could ever have imagined.
Can you really deceive your past and those around you?
First off, it took me a long time to get into this novel. Sibley and Deborah are initially pretty hard to like, and they are not reliable narrators.
That said, both characters have well-thought out character arcs, and taking the journey with them is definitely worth it.
As a psychological thriller with unreliable narrators, this book is filled with twists and turns that you won’t see coming. If that’s the kind of novel you love, then this is the novel for you!
