From the Author
The part about them being a different person became the basis for the story's opening. It got me thinking and I ultimately began exploring what might happen to love (how unbreakable it is or is not) when someone learns things, earth shattering things, they never realized about their soul mate, and whether love is stronger than fear or the shackles of mental illness. The story grew organically from there into a love story and psychological thriller. That originating spark is reflected in the book's first lines: "They say the morning after your wedding you wake up to a different person, someone who looks like the one you married, but who has begun to change in some subtle way. You can't put your finger on it, but you can feel the difference just the same."
