Об этой аудиокниге

Casey Ellis has arrived at a lonely place in her life. Her mother remains in a comatose state several years after a terrible accident -- and now her father has died.
Although Casey never met him, she held an oblique hope that someday her father might acknowledge her. She watched from afar as the illustrious Dr. Cornelius Unger became a celebrated psychologist and teacher. Through it all, she clung to the illusive dream that someday he might take notice of her -- and now it is too late.
It comes as a shock when she learns that he has left her his beautiful townhouse in Boston's exclusive Beacon Hill. Sensing that her father had an ulterior motive in leaving her the house, Casey searches the house and finds the first part of what could be a novel, a journal, or a case study for one of her father's clients. The manuscript tells the harrowing story of a young woman named Jenny who was sexually abused by her father and emotionally abused by her mother. When her mother was murdered, her father was sent to prison. After only six years in jail, he is about to be released, and Jenny knows she has to escape. Her way out appears in the form of a man named Pete who shows up on his motorcycle and offers to whisk her away.
Convinced the story is true, Casey sets out to find the rest of the pages and help Jenny. With the discovery of each additional segment, she learns more about Jenny, about herself, and about Cornelius Unger. The manuscript, when fully assembled, proves to be the key to understanding not only her father's past but also that of the man Casey has come to love.

    I love Barbara Delinsky's books! She writes wonderful characters with interesting stories - this one was not a disappointment. Interestingly, this is actually two stories in one. The main story concerns Casey, a therapist, who grew up with her mother and only knew who her father was from a distance. Her father is a successful professor, author, and therapist. The story revolves around her relationship with her mother, her father, and her new love interest. The second story involves a young woman named Marybeth Clyde. Her story is much more tragic and is told in a different way - I won't mention it here, because part of the intrigue of the novel is how each story unfolds.

    It kind of reminded me of TV shows with an A story and a B story that complement each other. Note: The book does contain sex outside of marriage. The descriptions are not graphic but there is more description than implication. A networking acquaintance gave me this book in a box of books. Warning: Spoilers May Ensue--Read at your own discretion.The story alternates between a past event: MaryJane "Jenny" Clyde, her father Darden Clyde, and Pete--and a present event: Cassandra "Casey" Ellis, her later father Cornelius "Connie" Unger, and her mother Caroline Ellis along with a few household staff of her late father.Casey is likable at times but she seems to both want and not want a relationship with her father. She claims to not care that he didn't acknowledge her but then says she chose not to even try to contact him. She chose her field of study though and secretly hopes that he will notice her or refer clients to her and even goes to his public lectures in the hopes he'll wave her over or speak to her. The back and forth of this can get annoying (to me at least). Connie leaves Casey his home after he dies--she resists living there at first. I can sort of understand that but after a while I think she was just fooling herself that she was going to stay at her condo that wasn't yet paid for. It was a little unbelievable that Casey found the manilla envelopes in the order the story was supposed to go. Not necessarily finding the first envelope first--I think it was a given that she'd probably use his office space so putting the first one there was probably likely to make it the first one found--but how would he know that the neighbor would come over with sheet music at just the right time to find envelope #2 in the music bench before Casey searches his bedroom where part #3 is?As far as Jenny, I guessed correctly that Darden had gone to jail in her place but I didn't guess the other issue in their relationship until closer to when the author revealed it. I didn't catch on to Pete until the author revealed it either nor did I realize who Jenny had become.Did Connie set up Jordan and Casey for a romantic relationship? Casey seems to think so. I think even Jordan thinks so. Casey discovers other family members she didn't know she had through the "case study" of Jenny.

    I enjoyed this book. Barbara Delinsky knows how to deliver a well written story about relationships and life. No surprises, just enjoyed the ride as I knew where we were heading.
