Summary

Emily and Elizabeth spent their childhood locked in a bedroom and terrorized by a mother who drank too much and disappeared for days. The identical twins were rescued by a family determined to be their saviors.

But there are some horrors love can’t erase.... 

Elizabeth wakes in a hospital, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak. The last thing she remembers is finding Emily’s body in their bathroom. Days before, she was falling in love and starting college. Now, she’s surrounded by men who talk to themselves and women who pull out their eyebrows.

As she delves deeper into the mystery surrounding Emily’s death, she discovers shocking secrets and holes in her memory that force her to remember what she’s worked so hard to forget - the beatings, the blood, the special friends. Her life spins out of control at a terrifying speed as she desperately tries to unravel the psychological puzzle of her past before it’s too late.

Not a fan of the ending.....

I really dig Lucinda Berry. I really enjoyed 9/10s of the book. Felt like the ending cheapened it. Wish I could dissociate out of having listened to the end.

Not As Advertised

This book is supposed to be a "psychological thriller" it is not by any means. Its about a girl who is in the psychiatric hospital period end of story. Where is the mystery? Where is the thrill? Beyond disappointment! Ive liked all the other actual pysch thrillers by this author so I believed the description.

Pretty good

I didn’t like this book as much as I liked the perfect child but, I was able to get through it. Wish it had a better ending though.

5 stars

Rescued from unspeakable abuse and torture at age seven, twins Emily and Elizabeth are adopted by loving parents Bob and Dahlia. Though their problems run deep, they make great strides in therapy. Now in college Elizabeth returns home to find Emily dead by suicide. Elizabeth is hospitalized where she must finally confront the truth of her childhood.

PHANTOM LIMB is a sad, believable story that encompasses both the depth of depravity and the height of resilience of the human spirit. Lucinda Berry’s background in psychology gives her the edge in creating believable, complex characters whose psychiatric issues are heartbreakingly authentic. PHANTOM LIMB has a few jaw-dropping twists I didn’t anticipate, enough to give an extra punch to the gut. This is my third of Berry’s books in three days, all five star reviews which are not ratings I give lightly. I have the rest in my queue to read next.

If you like psychological thrillers with pinpoint mental illness accuracy, you’ll love PHANTOM LIMB and all Lucinda Berry’s books as much as me.

Not a thriller…

I love Lucinda Berry’s writing. The narrator did a nice job.

But, this book is inaccurately marketed. It is in no way a psychological thriller. It’s a psychological journey of a young woman post-trauma in a psychiatric ward. If that’s what you’re interested in then definitely listen. You won’t find a psychological thriller by any means.
