While Alison Fairmont and her husband are sailing during a storm, Alison falls overboard and Andrew is accused of her murder. Now he knows his only chance to prove his innocence is to find Alison.
A couple of days later, the body of a woman, barely alive, is dragged from the water and it is determined she is Alison. She goes through several surgeries to restore her damaged face and Andrew realizes that she actually is not Alison, but Marnie, the motherless girl who was adopted by Grandma Jo and whose face was disfigured since birth. Why did Marnie decide to play along with Andrew's game and pose as Alison? What really happened to Andrew's wife?
This is a very good book with lots of twists that will keep the reader turning pages to find out the answers to these and many other questions. The writing flows smoothly and the plot is well crafted, although to be honest, there are a couple of unbelievable coincidences which in real life would be unlikely to find. Still, if you want an engaging read regardless of how realistic it is, this is certainly a good book.
