Renata Koreman, my little mouse. She came to me as a child - shy, mute, injured...broken. It took oh-so many years to start to bring her back to herself! Yet, I could not fully heal her.
Years later, Grant Wilkinson, he too fell into my hands. The ex-Army Ranger was badly disfigured and saw himself as a monster. Isolated by secrets, solitary and self-contained, his colleagues affectionately named him "Frosty". Yet, how should one behave when besieged by a lifetime of confusion and guilt?
The moment I saw him, I thought of her and I wondered. The eyes, they cannot always see clearly. And the heart? Ah, the heart can only guess at the truth. So it was that I remained uncertain.
Could the mouse and the monster heal each other?

Enough inner monologue already!
This is a mediocre story of unethical therapists. One of the major things I disliked was the lengthy portion of the story that's just inner monologue. It starts with Grant's story at the start and lasts a little over 2hrs, largely in the form of an inner monologue. Then the short tale of Stan followed by the lengthy story of Renata, which is another 2 hrs. or so, and it's almost all inner monologue as well. That's 4 hours!! So the primary couple doesn't even meet until more than 4hrs into a 9+ hr tale. It's unfortunate that inner monologues is the only way the author new how to reveal who Grant and Renata are.
In a nutshell, this book is a failed attempt at depth. The writer simply doesn't have the writing chops to pull it off. The story would've been better without the attempt; it then may have had less unwarranted & unnecessary drama and less over-wrought statements. And the cherry on top is the poorly-done French accent the narrator provides.
After dozing, I woke up and the story had finished running. I was grateful and didn't look back. I don't care what happened to anyone in the story and can't stand giving it any more of my time.

Chilling and insightful...Spell binding!!!
I didn't know what to expect and I got caught up in a chilling, yet insightful story. I can't wait to see what happens next. I will start book 2 today. This book was so complex but made me think about the way I look at myself and my life. I accept the monsters of the past, so they can help me appreciate and open myself to a possible future.
