The Song Remains the Same
After a plane crash, a woman remembers nothing—and it quickly becomes clear friends and family have their own agendas for what they want her to recall of her previous life. Elin Hilderbrand says this novel " takes on fascinating emotional terrain—the decision between dredging up the past, or wiping the slate clean and starting over. I can't remember becoming so engrossed in a novel so quickly or feeling so satisfied at the end."
She’s a wife, a sister, a daughter…but she remembers nothing. Now she must ask herself who she is and choose which stories—and storytellers—to trust. One of only two survivors of a plane crash, Nell Slattery wakes up in the hospital with no memory of it, or who she is, or was. Now she must piece together both body and mind with the help of family and friends who have their own agendas. Although Nell can’t remember all that came before, something just doesn’t sit right with the versions of her history given by her mother, her sister, and her husband.
Desperate for a key to unlock her past, she filters through photos, art, music, and stories, hoping that something will jog her memory, and soon, in tiny bits and pieces, Nell starts remembering. . . .
From the New York Times bestselling author of In Twenty Years, The Theory of Opposites and Time of My Life comes a novel that asks: Who are we without our memories? How much of our future is defined by our past?
