A compulsively readable psychological thriller about a life upended when a mysterious woman arrives from nowhere and blurs the lines between one man’s current reality and his buried memories. A renowned clinical psychologist, Gregory Weber, has a seemingly idyllic life—a lovely wife, two kids, a thriving therapy practice, and a country club membership in an affluent Boston suburb. But lately, Gregory is starting to feel increasingly disconnected, retreating to his backyard shed and rebuffing any attempts of closeness with his wife and family. When a mysterious woman begins appearing in his office each week, Gregory’s life is upended and what was once clear is now thrown out of focus. Just who is this mysterious patient and how can Greg stop the lines between memory and reality from blurring completely?
