Staff Reviews

This is such a beautiful story that had me hooked from page 1. Lucie comes to standing knee deep in the waters of San Francisco with no idea who she is or how she got there. When her picture is put out to the media, her fiance in Seattle sees the photo and races to be by her side but no one else had come forward. As Lucie returns to her life, she realizes that she doesn't like the person that she was and digs to discover why she had been the way that she was; standoffish, cold and controlling. As she investigates, she unearths a dark and terrible past, but with new eyes is able to see the world from a different perspective. It also brings to light the serious and not often discussed topic of mental illness and gives it a face, a name and understanding. -Madison

— From Madison's Current Favorites


Inspired by a true story, this bittersweet novel about a woman with a rare form of amnesia explores the raw, tender complexities of relationships and personal identity. Library Journal calls it "an emotional heart-tugger that doesn't go where readers might expect; a fascinating turnabout..."

If you could do it all over again, would you still choose him?

At age thirty-nine, Lucie Walker has no choice but to start her life over when she comes to, up to her knees in the chilly San Francisco Bay, with no idea how she got there or who she is. Her memory loss is caused by an emotional trauma she knows nothing about, and only when handsome, quiet Grady Goodall arrives at the hospital does she learn she has a home, a career, and a wedding just two months away. What went wrong? Grady seems to care for her, but Lucie is no more sure of him than she is of anything. As she collects the clues of her past self, she unlocks the mystery of what happened to her. The painful secrets she uncovers could hold the key to her future--if she trusts her heart enough to guide her.
