Black out: A Novelby Lisa Unger
Synopses & Reviews
When my mother named me Ophelia, she thought she was being literary. She didn’t realize she was being tragic.
On the surface, Annie Powers’s life in a wealthy Floridian suburb is happy and idyllic. Her husband, Gray, loves her fiercely; together, they dote on their beautiful young daughter, Victory. But the bubble surrounding Annie is pricked when she senses that the demons of her past have resurfaced and, to her horror, are now creeping up on her. These are demons she can’t fully recall because of a highly dissociative state that allowed her to forget the tragic and violent episodes of her earlier life as Ophelia March and to start over, under the loving and protective eye of Gray, as Annie Powers. Disturbing events—the appearance of a familiar dark figure on the beach, the mysterious murder of her psychologist—trigger strange and confusing memories for Annie, who realizes she has to quickly piece them together before her past comes to claim her future and her daughter.
Annie Powers's idyllic life in a Florida suburb with a wealthy, doting husband and beautiful young daughter begins to unravel when the demons of the past--which she cannot recall because of an intense dissociative state that has allowed her to build a new life--return to haunt her in the form of an enigmatic dark figure, the murder of her psychologist, and confusing, violent memories. 100,000 first printing.
A woman has to quickly piece together disturbing events--one of which is the murder of her psychologist--before her past comes to claim her future and her daughter.
