When Ella wakes up in a hospital following a hit-and-run incident, she is scared and confused. Close to tears, her eyes fall on a get-well-soon card on the window sill, and the nurse reassures her that her loving husband will be back soon. But Ella has never been married. In fact, she has lived alone her whole adult life; working hard, rarely socializing, quietly harboring a terrible secret from her past.

I never like to give up on a slow starting book but this one was really hard work
The story had potential but the writing was laboured and meandering
There was an unexpected twist towards the end but then the story petered out disappointingly
