The screams still haunt Anna. First, the driving rain. Then the train, emerging from the darkness. She remembers the fear, and climbing onto the beam of the bridge. And she remembers falling. . . . Trouble is, that wasn't Anna out there on that bridge. So who was it? And why has Anna been reliving her memories over and over, like a nightmare that never ends?

Kathleen Benner Duble's suspenseful debut novel explores the layers of our minds, and the bridges that connect them. You may never look at your dreams the same way again.
