Psychiatrist Nadine Lavoie has a true desire to help people put their demons at rest. But she has demons of her own, some she can barely think about and some she can't even remember. In the lockdown ward of a psychiatric hospital, she is in her element. She has the tools to help people, and she has the desire--healing broken families is what she lives for. But Nadine doesn't want to look too closely at her own past, because there are whole chunks of her life that are black holes. It takes all her willpower to tamp down her recurrent claustrophobia, and her daughter, Lisa, is a runaway who has been on the streets for seven years. When a distraught woman, Heather Simeon, is brought into the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit after a suicide attempt, Nadine gently coaxes her story out of her--and learns of some troubling parallels with her own life. Digging deeper, Nadine is forced to confront her traumatic childhood, and the damage that began when she and her brother were brought by their mother to a remote commune on Vancouver Island. What happened to Nadine? Why was their family destroyed? And why does the name Aaron Quinn, the group's leader, bring complex feelings of terror to Nadine even today? And then, the unthinkable happens, and Nadine realizes that danger is closer to home than she ever imagined. She has no choice but to face what terrifies her the most ... and fight back. Sometimes you can leave the past, but you can never escape.… (mere)

DNF. Felt super forced and the writing definitely didn't make up for it. ( )

Dr. Nadine Lavoie practices psychiatry in a hospital unit. However, being a psychiatrist doesn't keep her from difficulties in dealing with her own personal and family issues. Her husband died and she is still trying to deal with his death, her daughter is addicted to drugs and lives on the street, and Nadine's relationship with her brother has become distant. Adding to all of these, one of Nadine's patients commits suicide. That patient, Heather, recently lived in a commune with her husband and since leaving the commune she had become fearful and felt that she was being watched.

Nadine lived in a commune with her mother and brother when she was a young girl. Coincidentally, both communes shared the same leader. Nadine is plagued by bad memories of that time. And she has buried them deep in her subconscious. During the counseling with Heather, Nadine begins to resurrect those memories. And remembering leads her on a mission to find out about her own past and to expose the leader of the commune.

The book is not a page-turner as compared to other books by Stevens. The plot and characters were just enough to keep me interested. However, I'm glad I kept reading because Stevens did escalate the plot as the book reached its conclusion. ( )

This is one of my least favorites of her books. The story line was decent but I felt like I was able to figure most of the story out ahead of time. There weren't any real big shockers to me. I felt at times it was a little repetitive. ( )

What can I say about this book? HMMMMMM, I enjoyed her book [b:Still Missing|7159515|Still Missing|Chevy Stevens|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1260468195s/7159515.jpg|7383770] and thought that it was very well done. This one seemed to missing something.

This is the story of a woman that lived in a commune with her mother and brother for a period of 8 months while she was a child (pre-teenish). She doesn't remember a large part of her time in the commune, but she does know that bad stuff happened. Throughout the book she will regain snippets of memory that are being triggered by different events and experiences.

The premise of the story was good and it could have been an "edge of your seat" thriller, however, this one kind of left me with an 'oh well, it was alright'. None of the characters were developed. Just when you think that you are going to get to the meat of the matter we are left to wonder and move on to something/someone else.

This book was an easy and quick read and I would recommend it if you are sitting on the beach with nothing to do for a couple of days.

Many things to Netgalley and St Martins Press for this advanced readers copy. The expected publish date is June 18, 2013. ( )
