Out of the Shadow by J.S. Winn
This is a classic Whodunit story accompanied with tragedy
It is based on a story of a girl named Rachael (I will refer
to her as Becca, because that is what she is referred to as for most of the
story) and her struggle with repressed memory. It begins with the tragic loss
of her husband as well as her being raped in her own home. She begins seeing a
Psychologist, Sarah, for help. She feels as though her recent rape has a
connection to abuse that occurred when she was just a child.
This book runs two story lines at the same time. Sarah, the
psychologist, is holding a weekend convention speaking about Becca's case. This
is how we hear about her story. It isn't told in real time. It is told by Sarah
to her audience.
Sarah describes many men that Becca comes in contact with
through the course of her story. You never exactly figure out who the rapist
and murder is until it starts being revealed towards the end. It keeps you
guessing throughout the whole thing and really holds your attention. I felt
like it was every guy at one point or another. It took me til the end, when it
was explained to truly figure it out.
I love how this book was written. I was hooked from the
beginning and didn't want to put it down. I was sad when it ended because I wanted it to just keep going.
Overall, 5/5 stars. This story was fun to read (despite the rough topics) and I would
recommend it to suspense lovers like myself.
