It was the beginning......from here on, I got addicted to reading Mary Higgins Clark.
Liza had been imprisoned....she is accused of killing her own mother. But Liza can't remember anything about
what happened......she had the gun in her hand and her mother was suddenly shot dead. after coming back Liza marries Gary, and even gives birth to a son. After her separation from Gary, she marries again and he really loves her..
But the past doesn't leave Liza alone__her second husband gifts her the house in which she killed her mother as her 34th birthday present.
and o fcourse, strange things happen, as they were destined to.
