A Blue Sage Mystery
When I Knew You
When Antonia's memory is suddenly restored after a dozen years living with a form of profound amnesia, she rushes to see Kati, the daughter her brain injury forced her to forget. Knowing her lucidity won't last, Antonia is desperate to tell Kati her secrets while she can—a terrible truth about why her car wreck may have been no accident—and to warn her that in the past buried deep in her memory is a secret some would kill to have lost once and for all.
Her mother's cryptic warnings make Kati wonder what's true and what isn't. But when Kati listens to a tape recordings that Antonia made before her memory was once again eclipsed, Kati is driven to uncover the reason her childhood was robbed of the vibrant mother she loved and the treacherous secrets of a powerful family that could end both their lives.
Set in the Texas Hill Country and the high desert of El Paso, this is the second Blue Sage Mystery.
I do not believe I will ever look at a homeless woman the same way again.
A nice fast paced book. Sad, yet funny at times.
It's funny how one small thing, a book of matches, can change your life.
