Catherine Tolland must battle through her mental problems as she struggles to recall why she attempted to run away from her husband with no money or identification and why she has such a paralyzing fear. 15,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
A few months ago, Cath Tolland ran away from her life. Boarding a night bus with no credit cards or identification, using the last of her meager cash to buy a one-way ticket to Florida, Cath left behind her home, her friends, and a seemingly happy marriage - for reasons that not even she can remember.
But now Cath is back home in Connecticut, in the arms of her loving, if distant, husband, Derek - and watched over, perhaps a bit too closely, by her critical sister-in-law, Yvonne. Yvonne tells her that her mysterious night bus disappearance was merely another symptom of her ongoing mental problems - problems that have tested Derek and Yvonne's sanity for years, problems that make Derek "a saint" for putting up with her. Desperate to recover her past, Cath tries her hardest to piece together her fragmented memories and make sense of her sudden flight.
But as Cath's memories begin to surface, they raise more questions than they come close to answering. Why, if she has always suffered from mental problems, can't Cath remember ever speaking with a therapist? Why, if she and Derek have always had a happy marriage, is Cath beginning to remember evidence of "other women"? And - most terrifying - why is Cath beginning to feel that she should be afraid of her husband? How much can Cath trust the vague terror that fills her memories now - the terror that may have bought her a seat on a night bus to Florida?
