Description


"Eerie and atmospheric, this psychological thriller will twist its way into readers' psyches." --Booklist

In today's "lean in" era, debut novelist Siobhan Adcock casts the issue of whether women can ever "have it all" into a superbly written novel that will have readers everywhere talking. Bridget has given up her career to raise her daughter, but now a terrifying presence has entered their Texas home--and only Bridget can feel it. In 1902, motherhood spurs Rebecca to turn her back on her husband, despite her own misgivings. As Adcock crosscuts these two women's stories with mounting tension, each arrives at a terrible ordeal of her own making.
