Love at first sight may sound like cliché, but after a week of romantic bliss with a perfect stranger, Sarah becomes a believer. Sarah and Eddie have connected on every level and have fallen hopelessly in love. After seven days together, they know each other inside and out. But, then, Eddie doesn't call. Not for a day. A week. Or even a month. Complete and utter silence. Sarah knows what they had wasn't just a fling and wracks her brain trying to think of what could have happened. Is he injured? Has he died? Does he have a secret life? Never does it cross her mind that his feelings toward her have changed. Grief envelops her life as her friends try to help her cope and move forward. But what if there is something more to the story—what if something in her past is coming back to haunt her? How can she let go of the past if she can't let go of a man she's only known for a week? Breathtakingly narrated by Katherine Press, who keeps listeners enthralled as the story picks up speed. Press does a wonderful job bringing Sarah's paranoia, fear, hope, and worry to life with her skilled and accented oration.
VERDICT Surprising to the very end, each section of the story captures the listener in new, unsuspecting ways. ["A haunting and harrowing look at grief, trust, and one relationship that may or may not be able to sustain itself through a huge secret": LJ 8/18 review of the Pamela Dorman: Viking hc.]
