About the Book.
Insomnia has taken her sleep. Now it’s taking her mind…

When Jessie’s mother dies of cancer, she is forced to reconstruct a new life on her own. Overcome with grief and merciless insomnia, she embarks on a new beginning—she sells the home they shared, rents an apartment, applies to college. But a shocking discovery causes her to question everything she’s ever known, including her very identity.

Eden has yearned for a baby all her life, but her attempts to start a family are met only with heartbreak. Eden and her husband Aaron’s worlds begin to collapse. Financial trouble and marital atrophy are just the start as Eden unravels, becoming infatuated with having a child to call her own. How far is she willing to go to possess what fate doesn’t want her to have?

As Eden falls into the depths of despair and Jessie tumbles down a rabbit hole exacerbated by desolation and lack of sleep, queen of psychological suspense Mary Kubica blurs the lines of reality while two women come to discover that the road to hell is paved with good intentions…
