The Vanishing Year by Kate Moretti
Originally published on September 27, 2016
“How could I save someone when I couldn’t even save myself?”
“Cameras don’t invent beauty that’s not there. They just capture it at the right moment.”
“The one thing about having no one is that no one expects anything from you.”
“Don’t be afraid of sex. Be afraid of love, but not sex. Love can swallow you whole, consume you, change you, but sex? Sex is just for a night.”
“Truly, how many people can one person be?”
“People typically believe they have all the time in the world to accomplish things. There are a lot of theoretical ‘somedays.'”
“Sometimes it’s the people who have the least that give the most.”
Zoe Whittaker is living a charmed life. She is the beautiful young wife to handsome, charming Wall Street tycoon Henry Whittaker. She is a member of Manhattan’s social elite. She is on the board of one of the city’s most prestigious philanthropic organizations. She has a perfect Tribeca penthouse in the city and a gorgeous lake house in the country. The finest wine, the most up-to-date fashion, and the most luxurious vacations are all at her fingertips.
What no one knows is that five years ago, Zoe’s life was in danger. Back then, Zoe wasn’t Zoe at all. Now her secrets are coming back to haunt her.
As the past and present collide, Zoe must decide who she can trust before she—whoever she is—vanishes completely.
