What did she see?
It’s been ten long months since Anna Fox last left her home. Ten months during which she has haunted the rooms of her old New York house like a ghost, lost in her memories, too terrified to step outside.
Anna’s lifeline to the real world is her window, where she sits day after day, watching her neighbours. When the Russells move in, Anna is instantly drawn to them. A picture-perfect family of three, they are an echo of the life that was once hers.
But one evening, a frenzied scream rips across the silence, and Anna witnesses something no one was supposed to see. Now she must do everything she can to uncover the truth about what really happened. But even if she does, will anyone believe her? And can she even trust herself?

My thoughts and review:

Dr. Anna Fox has not left her house in almost a year.  Ever since a horrible accident she has been confined to her house watching the world go by through her windows.  All alone, she spends her days self medicating, drinking her worries away and watching old black and white movies.  She has hardly no contact with the outside world until a new family with a teenage son moves in across the park from her.  One day, Anna sees something shocking from her window or does she?  No one believes her and their is no evidence to support her claim.  Did Anna really see something?  Who will believe her?

This is a wonderful book that starts out strong.  You really feel for Anna after all she has been through.  There are some surprises along the way that I can't give away.  The ending is great.  I really did not see this one coming.  I should have.  All the clues were there and I missed it.  This book has been compared to Girl On A Train but in my option it is much better written.  Grab a copy and a warm blanket and prepare to read an excellent book!

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher and Goodreads.  All thoughts and reviews are my own.  I receive no compensation for my reviews!
