A child therapist and a mother still mourning her son’s death ten years ago. Dr. Karen Marks has moved on since then, but her newest patient seems to be the exact replica of her son. Suddenly, old wounds are re-opened and pain has found its way back to her heart.
Told in a diary narrative, story transitions between past and present. We learn that Karen was in the middle of an affair—lying between the sheets with a man that wasn’t her husband—when she heard about her son’s accident. On top of the brimming guilt, Karen must also contend with allegations on her dead, gay husband. Talk about a therapist needing a therapist.
Story was simply written with a rooted connection to the characters. The pace was rather slow, but the read was still fairly interesting. An okay read.
