From Publishers Weekly
Actress Eden Riley discovers her true relationship to the "uncle" who raised her and embarks on a steamy affair with an archeologist after she returns home to film her deceased mother's life story. "Although one significant secret in this many-layered novel will fail to surprise readers, the brisk, atmospherically evocative narrative is absorbing reading," said PW.

Yes, the storyline of the bored, famous actress looking for a 'real' life has been done, but this was done much differently than others I have read.
I liked that there were different storylines that intertwined.
Many of the 'surprises' could be predicted, but there were enough twists to keep me reading.
It was also nice that since this was an old book, it had a few punctuation errors, but not nearly as bad as many of the newer books.
Thanks Diane, we can feel your love in each of your books and I am always looking for more. So never stop !

Eden comes to discover that things are not what they appear to be, as she discovers her mother for the first time. Secrets are revealed, truths uncovered, not only about herself, but about her entire "family" as well. While seeking the truth, Eden comes to trust and rely on her uncle's colleague, Ben Alexander, and eventually realizes the love that has been missing in her life. Yet, Ben is also hiding a secret, which could eventually be disastrous to Eden, to her career and to her child as well.
Chamberlain weaves suspense, mystery, adventure, and romance all into one page-turner! As always, her ending will surprise the reader and have one asking where one missed the clues!! The story line is intense, yet the characters are powerful, can stand on their own and are able to draw the reader into their lives.
Another great story by Chamberlain!
I have read many novels dealing with agoraphobics, but none in which the sufferer took up residence in a cave. Diane Chamberlain makes you understand Katherine's feelings of terror and panic when away from the cave, you can almost experience Katherine's emotions and wish that the story would hurry up and move back to the cave. I have read all of Diane Chamberlain's books and this is by far her best work. If you're new to her writing, this is one book that you can not miss!
I had a difficult time putting this book down.
