On her fortieth birthday, Celia Guest has reason to celebrate. She has a loving marriage, a beautiful Connecticut home, and treasured friends. Celia has everything she’s ever wanted. But among the cards and well-wishes, she discovers a disturbing note: You don’t deserve any of this.
Who could be so cruel, so resentful, so…knowing? Then, in the early morning hours, Celia vanishes without a trace.
As suspicions and concerns rise among Celia’s friends, her sister Genevieve, with whom she shares a fractured and troubling bond, starts to piece together a shattered life that Celia fled from once before. As a foundation of lies begins to crumble, a terrifying childhood secret Celia thought was dead and buried comes to light.
And this time, there’s no getting away from the truth.
As we follow a woman’s journey to a long-buried secret, Gone Again reveals the darkness that one evil man had kept hidden from the community and his church. An evil that especially preyed on his oldest daughter Celia, one that led to how she fled from the home in which she grew up.
Now, just after her fortieth birthday, living with her beloved husband in a wonderful home, she is about to find that past resurrected. Someone has it out for her, someone who has been fed horrible lies, and that someone almost kills her. What will finally bring out the truth? A suspenseful tale told by alternating narrators, this one earned four stars.
