Title: and she was
Author: Alison Gaylin
Publisher: Harper
Format: Paperback; Pgs 384
Genre: Suspense
Source: Amazon Vine

Brenna suffers from hyperthymestic syndrome, a rare neurological disorder which gives those who suffer from it perfect autobiographical memory. Triggered by the years-ago disappearance of her older sister, the disorder forces Brenna to remember every moment that’s happened since in precise, visceral detail - the good, the bad, the mundane and the tragic. Yet the one event she wants desperately to remember – and solve - grows foggier and foggier in her mind.

In And She Was, a woman's disappearance intersects with a missing child case Brenna investigated eleven years ago – in which 6-year-old Iris Neff walked away from a Labor Day barbecue, never to be seen again. When Brenna is called upon to investigate the disappearance of Carol Wentz, 51, she learns that Carol – like herself – had been secretly obsessed with tracking down Iris, and may indeed have found her.

Reliving life-changing and deeply upsetting memories, Brenna discovers myriad ties between Carol, Iris and other residents of the Westchester County town where they live – and uncovers a shocking web of murder and deception that stretches back more than a decade.
