One woman’s reappearance throws her family into turmoil, exposing dark
secrets and the hidden, often devastating truth of family
Kate Bennett vanished from a parking lot eleven years ago, leaving behind
her husband and young daughter. When she shows up at a Montana gas station,
clutching an infant and screaming for help, investigators believe she may
have been abducted by a cult.
Kate’s return flips her family’s world upside down - her husband is
remarried, and her daughter barely remembers her. Kate herself doesn’t look
or act like she did before.
While the family tries to help Kate reintegrate into society, they discover
truths they’ve been hiding from each other about their own relationships.
But they aren’t the only ones with secrets. As the family unravels what
happened to Kate, a series of shocking revelations shows that Kate’s return
is more sinister than any of them could have imagined.

Holy crap what a ride from page 1! Missing for 11 years Kate is found in
terrible shape and holding a baby. The chapters flip back and forth
between present and past in Kate's life and remain in the present for all the
other members of the family. Kate's husband, Scott had her declared dead
but has kept her memory alive in their daughter Abbie. Finally moved on
he is now remarried so when he learns the news of Kate still being alive he is
This book focuses a lot on secretes we keep, even the little ones we think
don't make a difference but also in how we remember things. Scott has a
very idolized view of Kate and can't shake that image to see what is in front
of him now. Meredith is struggling, as Scott's current wife she has
mixed feelings about Kate's return but no one seems to care. I really
appreciated having Merediths point of view and seeing how all of this is
effecting her and the family she has tried to mold into something new.
Abbie is just overwrought, she was 5 when her mother disappeared and the only
memories she has of her mother are the ones that her father has shared.
When Kate returns she doesn't know how to feel but does feel a
connection to the mother who has been missing most of her life.
This book hooked me from page 1 and kept me engaged. I know some may
have felt it was slow but I breezed through it with no issues. I loved
the story and the different perspectives of the characters. The book
reminds me of a documentary I just watched on the NXIVM cult on Starz.
Its amazing how easy it is to get pulled into these situations when
looking to improved yourself. Very well done.
