Twenty years later, Maddie’s father nonetheless believes his daughter didn't take her personal existence.

The novel unfolds in time sessions, 2004 as Sophie turns into keen about assisting the daddy of a lady who died twenty years prior to turn out that she didn’t kill herself, and 1983 as a tortured and lonely younger Maddie strikes nearer and towards the day of her untimely demise.

May have been.
