ABOUT FACE by Fern Michaels
When Dr. Blake Hunter discovers Casey Edwards wandering along a Sweetwater, Georgia, road, she's a woman without a past, her memory stripped of the terrifying events that shattered her innocence a decade ago. The scrap of paper she clutches in her hand bears the address to Swan House, the magnificent mansion where Casey's mother lives with her mysteriously ailing husband. But "home" turns out to be anything but a safe haven. . .
Casey is determined to untangle the web of secrets that surround her. The answers lay somewhere within Swan House and its lavish gardens but someone wants Casey out of the way before she remembers too much. It will take the strength she's always had--and the love she's just found--to uncover her past and claim her future. . .
A disturbing story of a child repeatedly raped by a stepbrother, placed in a mental institution and one day released. She enlists the aid of a doctor to help her remember what happened exactly. The tale is hard to take in areas yet the writer has lightened it with some interesting exchange thrown in occasionally. A decent case of characters and good writing make this the book to read.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
