From the author of The Uninvited comes a haunting historical novel with a compelling mystery at its core.  A young child psychologist steps off a train, her destination a foggy seaside town. There, she begins a journey causing her to question everything she believes about life, death, memories, and reincarnation.

In 1925, Alice Lind steps off a train in the rain-soaked coastal hamlet of Gordon Bay, Oregon. There, she expects to do nothing more difficult than administer IQ tests to a group of rural schoolchildren. A trained psychologist, Alice believes mysteries of the mind can be unlocked scientifically, but now her views are about to be challenged by one curious child.

Seven-year-old Janie O’Daire is a mathematical genius, which is surprising. But what is disturbing are the stories she tells: that her name was once Violet, she grew up in Kansas decades earlier, and she drowned at age nineteen. Alice delves into these stories, at first believing they’re no more than the product of the girl’s vast imagination.  But, slowly, Alice comes to the realization that Janie might indeed be telling a strange truth.

Alice knows the investigation may endanger her already shaky professional reputation, and as a woman in a field dominated by men she has no room for mistakes. But she is unprepared for the ways it will illuminate terrifying mysteries within her own past, and in the process, irrevocably change her life.


Why am I waiting?

There’s just something about Cat Winters’ historical fiction that always makes me want to read more. Even if I’m not totally in love with the whole story, I still want to delve deeper. Anyway, I can’t wait to read this. What book are you waiting on this week?

  1. Oooh! I want this. I have The Uninvited but still haven’t read it yet, so the last thing I should be doing is adding more books to my TBR, but I can’t help it, this one looks too good to resist. Added to my wishlist, thanks for putting it on my radar!


  2. I love Cat’s books, she’s amazing and every time I’m blown away. She’s actually local to me and I know her. She’s pretty awesome to talk to and her events always include all the cool stuff she found out when doing research.


  3. Cat Winters is definitely an author name I am familiar with despite not having read anything by her yet! She seems to really enjoy the historical fiction genre and those kind of mysteries as well. The cover of this one is gorgeous as well, so I hope it follows through.


I love comments, and try to reply as often as I can. Know that I read each and every one.
