"UNRELENTING... THE BEST NEW SUSPENSE NOVEL THAT I HAVE READ IN A DECADE....  A RELENTLESS SENSE OF IMPENDING DOOM GRASPS THE READER BY THE THROAT."
- Bestsellers

IT WAS THE SORT OF THING THAT HAPPENED ONLY IN FAIRY TALES....

One day she was simply Jenny MacPartland - young, charming, divorced, working in a New York art gallery, struggling to support her two little girls - the next, she was a princess, lavishly courted by a handsome artist whose exquisitly peaceful landscapes were making him famous virtually overnight.  Within a month, Jenny was married ro Erich Krueger.  She had found her prince, the man she could truly love.

UNTIL IT BECAME THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARE

Suddenly weathy, adored, warmly cared for, Jenny knew she'd grow to love living on Erish's Minnesota farm.  Until the lonely days and eerie nights strained her nerves to the breaking point... until bizarre incidents led her to doubt her own sanity... until a chain of events revealed the link to a past more terrifying than she dared imagine - a past that threatened her marriage, her children, her life.

"GRIPPING... A STORY TO BE DEVOURED AT A SINGLE SITTING."

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
