This starts out FAST....got a little wierd in the middle......now 3/4 of the way and is a page turner again. Started it Monday (Jan 9-12)...will probably finish today (Thursday Jan 12-12) or tomorrow if life gets in the way. Having trouble keeping my hands off! So wierd it's kinda wonderful!

A man and his disinterested wife move to a small town to start over after he has discovered her affair. They pick a house that was once a home for expectant mothers. But when the wife leaves to try a new career, the husband is given a photo album of the past occupants only to find his wife's face in one of the century old pictures. How this happens is explained by a series of confusing conversations that may or may not happen in his head, but definitely happen in the readers head. What starts out as a wonderful premise turns into a cheap horror film script with lots of sex and crummy scares. What a true talent could have done with this, I can only imagine!
