Susanna Van Dusen Hawke has one of the best-known faces and bodies in the world. A super-model, she married the photographer who made her famous, and now he, the great Hawke, is dying too young. But Hawke's illness is only one tragedy in this extraordinary woman's life. Behind the perfect facade the public adores is a woman whose very survival depends on carefully guarding her secrets, but whose sanity is now threatened by repressed memories she can neither fully remember nor escape.Entering her life as her hospitalized husband slips into decline, psychologist Pete Strauss has made assumptions about a woman capable of selling her looks the way Susanna does. But he is wrong. The woman he encounters is deep, complex, and devoted to Hawke. She is also scared to death.As Susanna's life crumbles around her, she realizes she must follow the clues into her past and the truths buried there. From her childhood with her baby sister in the care of a foster family on Cape Cod to even earlier days lost in darkness and pain, she enters a shadowy landscape of memories wrapped in clever lies. But what neither she nor Pete Strauss suspects is that there are dangers in remembering...dangers to a treacherous enemy...and dangers to the life of a beautiful woman ready to listen to whispers of her past.
