Ruth Hartland is the director of a trauma unit, a psychotherapist with years of experience, wise and respected by her peers. The mother of grown twins, she is haunted by the fact that her beautiful, difficult, fragile son Tom, a boy who never "fit in," disappeared a year and a half earlier. Enter a new patient, Dan-- unstable and traumatized-- who looks exactly like her missing son. Ruth's complicated feelings about the dissolution of her marriage and her family, about how she has failed her own boy, cloud her professional judgment. Boundaries she would never have crossed with another patient are crossed... -- adapted from jacket.
