Summary:

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. Nadine’s mother was a wildly unpredictable manic depressive. There are whole chunks of Nadine’s 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 new patient, Heather Simeon, is brought to the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit after a suicide attempt, Nadine is assigned to work with her. As Nadine gently coaxes the story out of Heather, she learns of some troubling parallels to their lives. Digging deeper, Nadine is forced to confront her own history, and the damage that began when she and her brother were brought by their mother to a commune by a river on remote 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? As the dual stories unfold, Nadine finds herself drawn to uncover her own secrets and learn why you can sometimes leave the past, but you can never escape.
