There are scenes in this novel that are difficult to read; they hit hard and true. Paullina has a skill at bringing a story to life.

About Product Details Praise International bestselling author Paullina Simons delivers a riveting novel about a young woman whose search for her missing friend turns into a life-shattering odyssey. The truth will change her forever.
It's quite a large book at almost pages, and since the arctic air is keeping people inside, it's a good read for those snuggling up inside. From a master storyteller comes a new heart-wrenching, magnificent and un-putdownable novel. After graduating from university and after various jobs including working as a financial journalist and as a translator Paullina wrote her first novel Tully. Pero hasta que eso ocurre su historia estaba latente, bajo la superficie, y oculta bajo apariencias inofensivas, pero realmente nunca se manifestaba. The truth will change her forever. And so it happened, that from one page to another and further acquaintance with the characters, the reading became more compelling and less despairing.
William Morrow Paperbacks On Sale: This gorgeous book is much more than a conventional thriller. Give this one the word of mouth it richly deserves.
Roar of Sky by Beth Cato. Subterranean by James Rollins. To Kill a Mockingbird: The Stylist by Rosie Nixon. I've never been able to deal with characters or people in real life, for that matter who have the solution to major problems easily within their reach, yet fail to act.
Luckily though, events in the book moved on in such a way as to remove that irritation, and I was able to settle down into the book and enjoy it. Some very traumatic moments, and some very damaged characters that family has got to be the definition of dysfunctional!
The ending spoiler alert, highlight to read almost risked being a little too "happily ever after", but was rescued by the hint that Lily's sister would be killed in the September 11 attacks, and worse, would only be in the building because Lily was out of town - definitely not a happily ever after for Lily, then. On the table at this afternoon's meetup.
