Nora Brown teaches high school English and lives a quiet life in Seattle with her husband and six-year-old daughter. But one November day, moments after dismissing her class, a girl's face appears above the students' desks and terror rushes through Nora's body. Twenty-four hours later, while on Thanksgiving vacation, the face appears again. Shaken and unsteady, Nora meets with neurologists and eventually, a psychiatrist. As the story progresses, a terrible secret is discovered, a secret that pushes Nora toward an even deeper psychological breakdown.

Brilliant writing about extremely difficult emotions. The author is a poet, and it's evident in how she expresses herself in prose. Not pretentious "look at me" language, but words you'll reread because of their beauty. It is compelling, but also hard to read because you feel Nora's emotions as she is experiencing them. A phenomenal novel.
