When Laurel Estabrook is attacked while riding her bicycle through Vermont’s back roads, her life is forever changed. Formerly outgoing, Laurel withdraws into her photography, spending all her free time at a homeless shelter. There she meets Bobbie Crocker, a man with a history of mental illness and a box of photographs that he won’t let anyone see. When Bobbie dies, Laurel discovers a deeply hidden secret–a story that leads her far from her old life, and into a cat-and-mouse game with pursuers who claim they want to save her. In a tale that travels between the Roaring Twenties and the twenty-first century, between Jay Gatsby’s Long Island and rural New England, bestselling author Chris Bohjalian has written his most extraordinary novel yet.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Publishers Weekly Review

Best Bohjalian title ever. I didn't read this on the iPad. I stumbled upon it in a Barnes and Noble when it was advertised as a new favorite. I'd never really heard the name Bohjalian before but did recall the novel Midwives as an Oprah book club selection. This book was awesome and I couldn't put it down. It has become my favorite because it just wasn't what I expected and it kept my attention the entire time. It made me go back and read other Bohjalian novels and while I've enjoyed them all, this is by far, my absolute favorite.
The Double Bind
One of the best books I have ever read. So well written and you don't figure it out until the end!
Starts out slow but then!
I almost put this book away after 35 pages, but I am glad I didn't.
Well written suspense novel with clues that are not obvious til near the end.
