Goodreads:  Three women. One stranger in a shimmering silver dress. Whatever binds them together has already destroyed one life. It just might consume them all.

Someday, Livvi Gray will break free from her past. Someday, she will escape her recurring nightmare about that stranger in a shimmering silver dress. Someday, she will have a family of her own. Now she's found Andrew, and someday seems to be right around the corner. But there's so much Livvi doesn't know.

Shortly before her thirtieth birthday, she will come face-to-face with the stranger from her dream-an encounter that will alter Livvi's future and crack open everything she knew about her past. Livvi is swiftly moving toward the ultimate turning point in her life-and she's not the only one. Linked by an unforgettable mystery, photographer Micah and young mother AnnaLee are also being rapidly drawn into a web of devastating secrets about the unexpected ways in which we choose to protect-and betray-the people we love.

Kritters Thoughts:  Three different women with three different story lines and I wondered for the longest time if they were going to interconnect.  Two stories took place in 2012 and the other took place in 1986, so it was easy to infer that the 1986 story was the connection between the two.  

My favorite character was Livvi because I just wanted to root for her to find happiness.  I felt like she was the most developed character and the reader really knew her as we learn a lot about her childhood throughout the book and what makes her the person she is now.  When you find out about her childhood it makes you root for her even more.

I wish that the stories had connected a little earlier to allow for some more interaction between the women - I think that would have been a better ending.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Sourcebooks.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.


  1. I felt the same way about Sisterland, which I read a couple of months ago. I kept waiting for the stories to connect and felt a bit cheated. Thanks for sharing an honest review.

  2. Nice review. I really liked this book.

    THANKS for your review.
