What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all? Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she's spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Gullaway Island; she knows she's never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she's never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don't we? But all that changes when a Saturday afternoon trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she's been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one will ever find her. But now she's been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again. Twenty-four hours later Laura is in the hospital, shot by an intruder who's spent thirty years trying to track her down and discover what she knows. Andrea is on a desperate journey following the breadcrumbs of her mother's past. And if she can't uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either one of them.… (plus d'informations)

Pretty good one, started off fast, stalled a bit in the middle but finished strong. Soon to be a Netflix Project. ( )

The story of Andrea and her mother Laura was mostly okay, but I just kind of lost interest during the flashback times. I didn't see how frail, wimpy Jane transformed into the badass Laura. Yes, mothers do anything to protect their children, but geez. I feel like I went on way longer than it should have. I liked Andrea and could have read more about her and less about Jane/Laura. Nick was a sociopath who wouldn't have gotten or held Jane's attention for as long as he did, especially after the first miscarriage. Maybe it was the audible version? Nah, the performance was done well. It was just the story. ( )

When Andy (Andrea) and her mother are caught up in a shooting incident at a local diner, Andy is forced to go on the run as a mysterious "they" close in on them both.

The novel has two timelines, one in the 1980s and one in the late 2010s (i.e., pre-pandemic). The first section for each timeline is very exciting and tense though the remainder of the book doesn't always manage to keep the excitement and tension at the same level. I would like to have seen how the rather passive follower in the 1980s developed into the fierce ninja-like 21st century figure. ( )

Enjoyable but highly unlikely story. Kind of makes me want to have an escape plan and/or take a road trip. ( )

A little bit out there. Hard to buy into a sense of reality with the plot. ( )

For years, even while she'd loved him, part of her had hated him in the childish way you hate something you can't control. (Prologue)
"Andrea," her mother said.

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you--Nobody--Too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise--you know!

How dreary--to be--Somebody!
How public--like a Frog--
To tell one's name--the livelong June--
To an admiring Bog!

--Emily Dickinson

What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all? Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she's spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Gullaway Island; she knows she's never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she's never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don't we? But all that changes when a Saturday afternoon trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she's been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one will ever find her. But now she's been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again. Twenty-four hours later Laura is in the hospital, shot by an intruder who's spent thirty years trying to track her down and discover what she knows. Andrea is on a desperate journey following the breadcrumbs of her mother's past. And if she can't uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either one of them.
