An intricately plotted debut about love, obsession, and the destruction of a family from the inside out.
When her husband's scholarly interest turns to obsession, Lydia Carroll will do whatever it takes to save her family. She knows only one version of the story of Mary Stone Walker’s disappearance: her husband's. English professor Frank Carroll has been fixated on the mystery of for years, crafting a narrative based on Mary’s poetry and journals that insists that Mary lived past that night in 1939.
As Frank's behaviour grows more erratic, Lydia sees that his interest has evolved into an obsession - one that threatens to destroy the family they have built together. Lydia throws herself into the mystery, hoping to solve it and bring peace back to her home. But as Lydia begins investigating, her son takes action with a plan of his own...one that will bring the family to a breaking point and change Lydia's destiny forever.
"Vincenta keeps you turning pages as she takes you on a journey that explores the complexities of marriage and families, professional quests as well as one's deepest, darkest passions." (Renee Rosen, best-selling author of What the Lady Wants)

not a crime and thriller book
this is a great story, more of an aga saga than crime and thriller. definitely wrong category. well written and narrated. very believable I even did a web search for Margaret Stone Walker!
A bad marriage . Don't waste credit.
A bad marriage, and poems. I'll call my sister if I want to listen to a bad marriage for an hour.
