This story is about severe trauma and a woman's struggle to survive the aftermath. After 20 years of prison, Bobby is granted her freedom. With no recollection of her past and the events that led to her incarceration, she sets off to build a life for herself. Alone in the world, she cautiously tries to integrate back into society. As she goes about her new daily life, the pieces of her past start exploding around her. Nightmares, flashbacks, and people she meets connect her to fragments of a frightening life before prison. With the knowledge that Bobby suffers from PTSD, her new friends try to help her put the missing pieces of her life back together.
I won this as a goodreads giveaway. Ok....so this book started out pretty good. I was interested in what was going on, and it seemed to be moving along ok. The dialogue and interaction was a little awkward, but new writers always get a pass on that, cuz it has to be a hard thing to figure out. Then it started to get a bit graphically disturbing in a childhood memory type way, and that’s not really my kind of book. But I kept reading because I felt like I wanted to give it a fair go, since it was a giveaway. Then it started getting a little confusing. It seemed to start to jump back and forth between three timelines without really giving any clues as to when or why. You would all of a sudden just be in a completely different place and time. Then it got SUPER confusing, and I was just completely lost. I checked to see where I was at and how close to finishing I was, and I was only about halfway through the book. I couldn’t finish it. I wouldn’t recommend this book.
audible:I enjoyed this book.The story was well written.The mind is amazing in how it protects us.PTSD is real.Bobby has it to a severe degree,she has memory loss that threatens her life because someone is after her. Heidi Bindhammer was a fine narrator.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I won this book from Goodreads. Kept me interested throughout the whole story. I liked how everything was brought together to make sense. Very detailed descriptions of feelings and scenes made it more interesting to read.
The book was recommended to me, so I started reading it. It was a bit confusing at first with the switching of timelines but understandable after a while. Really enjoyed the casual writing style which made it an easy read. Before I knew it it was done.
Truly a terrifying situation to be in. I was hooked on this book from the first page! I feel a sense of pity for Bobby as she tried to put the pieces of her life back together day by day and yet she shows such mental strength throughout her journey. I highly recommend!
