  Library Journal Review

Patterson, here partnering with children's book author Charbonnet, diverges from his usual mix of blood, suspense, and terror with this captivating tale of a young woman and her soulmate. Though the characters are interesting and the dialog is realistic, it's rather a souffle of a story that could easily float off into obscurity were it not for the outstanding narration by Ellen Archer (www.ellenarcher.com)--who, in this reviewer's opinion, is one of best readers in the business. Highly recommended for all public libraries.

On Jane's ninth birthday he leaves, promising her that she'll soon forget him. Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child.
