When she woke up, she remembers nothing. She has nothing with her except her clothes and a Bible. She knows no one, the cops are waiting to ask questions about things she doesn’t know about, and she is having bad dreams that she suspects to be her memories trying to return. So the gracious, kind and handsome doctor who takes care of her is a real blessing.

Finally given the temporary name of Ruth, Dr. Richard Hayle tries to help her recover her memory by employing Dr. Julie Greene to perform hypnosis on her. At the same time, she and Richard are drawn to each other in ways that are more than professional.

But she still has to contend with dreams that are fast becoming sinister. The cops have found a dead woman in the woods near where she was recovered and they seem to believe the answers they are seeking are locked with the memories inside her head.

Does she? Ruth wants to help. But what if recovering those answers will mean harming herself?

“I can't begin to imagine what you must be feeling right now, but you'll have to trust me when I say that we're going to do everything in our power to get you back to being you again. Now, my name is Dr. Hayle. If you have any questions and I’m not around, just let one of your nurses know and they will page me.”

“I’ll do that,” she said. As she listened to him speaking, she focused on his voice once again. It was so sweet and caring, but there was also a toughness underneath all of that—a rough edge that told her that she was in strong, capable hands.

“Now,” Dr. Hayle said, “I’m afraid I'm going to have to switch gears here for a minute. There's a bit of unpleasant business that needs to be taken care of, and given you current state of recovery, I think it's time we get it over with.”

“That doesn’t sound promising,” she said. As she waited for him to continue, she tried to think of what this unpleasant business might be. Outside of her memory and whatever trauma had been done to her head, she was pretty sure she had no injuries. Was there perhaps something more they needed to tell her—something they didn’t want to burden her with until she was fully coherent?

“The police have been waiting patiently to ask you a few questions,” Dr. Hayle said. “And I think it's time we gave them their chance. I don't want you to worry about it. I'm going to stay with you the entire time.”

The police? Why would the police want to talk to her? The thought sent a spiral of panic through her and the gash on her head seemed to thrum in response.

“Is that okay?” Dr. Hayle asked.

She nodded and found herself wanting to reach out and take his hand.

About the Author

Rachel Gilberts was born in Nashville, Tennessee - her hometown, then and now. She works as a Humanities professor and as a freelance self-published Christian book author.

Her parents are Frank and Jemimah. Frank, now deceased, supported the family by tending their family farm while Jemimah worked as a local bookshop supervisor. Jemimah, now retired, helps supervise work at the farm.

Rachel has three other siblings – Ruth, aged 42, and twins John and Jacob, both 36.

Ruth, husband Paul, and daughter Martha now tend to the farm. John, still single, is a civil engineer, while Jacob, now married to college sweetheart Marie, is a hotel front desk manager.

Rachel has a child named Maryanne, aged 12, by her husband, Keith. Keith was once a one-hit country singer but is now a comptroller at an insurance and financial services company. Rachel and Keith parted ways for “personal differences."

Rachel, as alleged by Keith, is content with “small town” life, and he is not. Custody is not an issue as Keith participates actively in raising Maryanne.
