This is a gripping story of a girl who has total amnesia. She is picked up at the side of the road and taken to the town Valleyview by a part time preacher, part time maintenance worker at a nursing home. She is taken to the home of Hannah where she will be safe. Once her battered body is healed she gets a job at the nursing home. A lot of internal talking goes on in "Alice's" head-but that isn't her real name-she made it up along with her age so she could work, as she tries to figure out just who she really is.
At the nursing home people are dying. With each death "Alice" remembers a bit more. "Alice's" life slowly unfolds until all is revealed. You will not have guessed what "Alice's" story really is.
About the Book (from Amazon)
Who is she? Battered and bruised, she first becomes aware of her total loss of memory while walking on a dark, lonely road. Before she arrives in an unfamiliar town called Valleyview, she makes up a name–Alice Strong--and claims she’s eighteen. Her injuries heal and she accepts a job at the local nursing home. During her first day of work, a patient passes away, posed as if ready for burial. Alice can’t understand why the death of an old woman she doesn’t know hits her so hard. When a second resident dies in the same position, the director of nurses, Betty Cranston, is positive residents are being murdered. She fears for her paralyzed mother. And she suspects Alice.
Alice must remember her past to help prove her innocence. When she remembers this wasn’t her first blackout, dread holds her back because what she does recall might all disappear a third time. Can she piece her puzzle together before the killer strikes again? Should she even try?
