When my mother named me Ophelia, she thought she was being literary. She didn’t realize she was being tragic. On the surface, Annie Powers’ life in a wealthy Floridian suburb is happy and idyllic. Her husband, Gray, loves her fiercely; together, they dote on their beautiful young daughter, Victory. But the bubble surrounding Annie is pierced when she senses that the demons from an ugly past are gaining on her quickly, triggering frightening—and unwanted – memories of someone she used to be. A lifetime ago Annie was Ophelia March, a young girl who fled a troubled home only to find herself in the thrall of a killer—someone who Annie thought she’d left far behind. After a series of disturbing events—the appearance of a familiar dark figure on the beach and a mysterious man asking too many questions —Annie realizes she must piece together her fractured memory to finally make sense of who she was and who she is and, ultimately, to save herself and her daughter.
