Among the homeless, it's often easy to recognize the mentally ill. However, because many of the truly mentally ill know how to maintain an air of normalcy in most social situations, we never see them. It could be someone you work with, your best friend, even your spouse. Their illnesses may live just beneath the surface of what they present in everyday life. Sometimes an event will trigger an episode that shocks those around them. Having met and lived with several people who suffered from insidi ...more

There were moments in this story where I gasp and couldn't contain my horror. The un ...more

How can mental illness be so well hidden? Secrets in plain sight become clear as the story evolves until the fascinating truth is revealed. Well written with engaging characters.

A Goodreads First Reads giveaway. *POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD*

Unlike many self-published books I've read, I was probably 30 or 40 pages into this novel before noticing any errors.

One of the main characters is named Liz, and the possessive form was always presented as Liz' instead of the proper Liz's. Just a note to self-published authors: invest in a good and competent proo
