"I know what my husband would say: that I have too much time on my hands; that I need to keep myself busy. That I need to take my medication. Empty nest syndrome, he tells his friends at the pub, his mother. He's always said I have a vivid imagination."
Life is claustrophic to Marta -- her mind is constantly playing tricks. She can barely remember a time before she was married -- until she begins having visions that make her question everything she knows.
In the tradition of Emma Donoghue's Room and S. J. Watson's Before I Go to Sleep, Marta's story unravels with unnerving precision and compelling uncertainty, leaving as much to the imagination as it reveals on the page.
