Publisher's Summary

Two women trapped by a past that won't let go...
At first sight, Monika and Maj-Britt are as different as two people can possibly be. They have nothing in common but the determination to obliterate their memories and be left alone. But when a tragic accident brings them face to face, the emotional voids at the centre of their lives threatens to engulf them and they are forced to confront the secrets and the sadness they had hoped to bury.
A suspenseful psychological thriller, Shame reveals the ordinary days of the odd and the lonely as they twist into self-destruction and holds out a glimmering hope of redemption and acceptance.

Gripping but harrowing

Great book & narrator
I loved and hated this book at the same time- incredibly sad, frustrating and involving... But I was relieved when is was finished!!
