Notes

Description
As a sixteen-year-old, Tessa Cartwright was found in a Texas field, barely alive amid a scattering of bones, with only fragments of memory as to how she got there. Ever since, the press has pursued her as the lone surviving ́⁰₋Black-Eyed Susan,́⁰₊ the nickname given to the murder victims because of the yellow carpet of wildflowers that flourished above their shared grave. Tessá⁰₉s testimony about those tragic hours put a man on death row. Now, almost two decades later, Tessa is an artist and single mother. In the desolate cold of February, she is shocked to discover a freshly planted patch of black-eyed susans -- a summertime bloom -- just outside her bedroom window. Terrified at the implications -- that she sent the wrong man to prison and the real killer remains at large -- Tessa turns to the lawyers working to exonerate the man awaiting execution. But the flowers alone are not proof enough, and the forensic investigation of the still-unidentified bones is progressing too slowly. An innocent life hangs in the balance. The legal team appeals to Tessa to undergo hypnosis to retrieve lost memories -- and to share the drawings she produced as part of an experimental therapy shortly after her rescue. What they doń⁰₉t know is that Tessa and the scared, fragile girl she was have built a fortress of secrets. As the clock ticks toward the execution, Tessa fears for her sanity, but even more for the safety of her teenaged daughter. Is a serial killer still roaming free, taunting Tessa with a trail of clues? She has no choice but to confront old ghosts and lingering nightmares to finally discover what really happened that night.
