When a six year old girl named Arden disappears during a rainstorm, townspeople fear she has been swept away through the drainage system. She was known to be a sleep walker. Found clinging to a drainage grate, her survival is deemed a miracle. This occurred twenty years ago but she relived the media frenzy every few years. At age 16 she changed her name, becoming Olivia, changes schools, moves from place to place, keeps her distance from people and lives a new life.

Notified that her mother has died, she receives a box of her belongings. The box brings back the memories of her childhood and she begins sleeping walking. One night she awakens next to a dead body that she realizes is the man who found her so long ago. How did anyone find her? How did anyone know who she was? Fear blossoms and she begins feeling uneasy and watched. Now Olivia works in a hospital with a safe, anonymous life but something is wrong, very wrong. While she has blood on her hands she knows that she didn't kill him so who did.

The writing had me experiencing the same feelings. When the man's son appears with questions about the holes in that incident, she begins to analyze what happened so long ago. What she believed and what the townspeople believed is not the full story. So what really happened? So, why was her rescuer murdered?

Arden Maynor was just a child when she was swept away while sleepwalking during a terrifying rainstorm and went missing for days. Arden changed her name and disappeared from the public eye. Arden now goes by the name Olivia Meyer. 20 yrs. later, Olivia feels like she's being watched and begins sleepwalking again. She jolts awake in her yard one night. At her feet is the corpse of a man she knows from her previous life, as Arden Maynor. She is now once again the center of the story. This was a well-paced psychological thriller with several twists and turns and a surprise ending that I did not see coming. I would definitely read another book by her and I highly recommend this one.
