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. In the lockdown ward of a psychiatric hospital, she is in her element. She has the tools to help people, and she has the desire--healing broken families is what she lives for. But Nadine doesn't want to look too closely at her own past, because there are whole chunks of her 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 distraught woman, Heather Simeon, is brought into the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit after a suicide attempt, Nadine gently coaxes her story out of her--and learns of some troubling parallels with her own life. Digging deeper, Nadine is forced to confront her traumatic childhood, and the damage that began when she and her brother were brought by their mother to a remote commune on 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? And then, the unthinkable happens, and Nadine realizes that danger is closer to home than she ever imagined. She has no choice but to face what terrifies her the most ... and fight back. Sometimes you can leave the past, but you can never escape
Summary
Having dedicated her career to helping others, psychiatrist Nadine Lavoie struggles with family mental health issues that have resulted in claustrophobia and blocked memories, a condition that disturbingly parallels the challenges of a new patient and implicates the long-ago leader of a remote commune where Nadine lived in childhood
