Dr. Phyl, a psychiatrist, was intrigued with the story of a young woman who has been found injured in a ravine. When the girl gains consciousness, it is discovered that she has lost all memory of who she is or how she came to be lying in the ravine. One of the first fragments of memory to return is of "a child sitting on the stopes of a wonderful pink villa". This is a novel of betrayals and family secrets, madness and survival. While I read it all, I would not put it towards the top of the many Adler books I have read. ( )
