Library Journal Review

Maggie, Noah, and their son, Caleb, live a comfortable, happy life, but this is a do-over for Maggie. Her first marriage ended in divorce, and, worse, she lost custody of her daughter, Anna, after suffering from postpartum depression. When the phone rings 17 years later, and the caller claims to be Anna, Maggie can hardly believe it. A second chance at a life with her daughter is all she's ever dreamed about. Noah and Caleb are ecstatic, too, and try to help ease the transition for Anna, but something goes terribly wrong. Anna begins making accusations toward Noah, and Maggie doesn't know what to believe, but she will never desert her daughter a second time. As the family tries to come to grips with what's really going on, Noah faces another test-one that might be his undoing. Verdict Once again, Scottoline (Keep Quiet) has written a gripping stand-alone psychological thriller; fans of domestic suspense will snap this one up.
