BLOG TOUR - The Hospital



When I wake up, I know three things. My name is Emma. Someone tried to kill me. And I can’t remember who.

When I blink, my eyelashes brush against scratchy cloth. My fingers twitch, numb and distant. In the distance, sirens wail. I’m in the hospital.

I should be safe here, but I know I’m not. The last thing I remember is running, seeing an arm raised to strike… 
Why would anyone want to kill me?

Desperately, I piece together my scattered memories. I’m standing with my husband on sugar-white sand, our rings glinting in the sunlight. I’ll get better, and I’ll go home to him, and he will protect me.

But when he visits, his new girlfriend is on his arm. He tells me we got divorced three years ago, and my world falls apart. 
What else have I forgotten?

The only way I can keep myself safe is to uncover the answers buried deep in my mind. But as I talk to my visitors—listening to the gentle tones of the doctors and nurses, grateful for the care of my friends and family—I start to see the lies that contradict what I remember of my life.

They say it’s just my broken memory. But I know the shocking truth: 
I can’t trust a word anyone says…

Emma Duncan escaped from a brutal attack. She is now in the hospital. She is struggling to remember what happened. Not only does she not remember. she has lost her vision. The only memory she has at the moment was that she was running from an unknown assailant. 

Emma is fairly sure that she is married to a man named Steve, and finds herself quite relieved when the doctor helps her to understand that chunks of her past will begin to unlock. As Emma goes day by day, struggling for feeling, struggling for memory. she is disheartened that growth is slow. This is very terrifying to Emma. Meanwhile, she is secretly being watched. 

Imagining Emma in a strange hospital under all of those circumstances was rather chilling. The fact that most affected me was the loss of her sight, and having to depend on her other senses to try to handle things each day, all while struggling to regain her memory.

This psychological thriller by Leslie Wolfe was truly engrossing. It was impossible to put down, especially when just before I read this book I was about to undergo a procedure and had in impending hospital stay. Ms. Wolfe did a fabulous job pulling me into the story and therefore allowing me to project Emma’s unusual circumstances to a real life scenario. Excellent job. Excellent twists. Excellent writing. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
