“This is an absolute, can’t-put-it-down thriller…It’s truly a wild ride
that had me flying through chapter after chapter—which I think is the
perfect way to kick off your year of reading.” —Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s
Book Club Jan ’23 Pick)Armed with only hazy memories, a woman who long ago
witnessed her friend’s sudden, mysterious death, and has since spent her
life trying to forget, sets out to track down answers. What she uncovers,
deep in the woods, is hardly to be believed….Maya was a high school
senior when her best friend, Aubrey, mysteriously dropped dead in front of
the enigmatic man named Frank whom they’d been spending time with all
summer. Seven years later, Maya lives in Boston with a loving boyfriend
and is kicking the secret addiction that has allowed her to cope with what
happened years ago, the gaps in her memories, and the lost time that she
can’t account for. But her past comes rushing back when she comes across a
recent YouTube video in which a young woman suddenly keels over and dies in
a diner while sitting across from none other than Frank. Plunged into the
trauma that has defined her life, Maya heads to her Berkshires hometown to
relive that fateful summer—the influence Frank once had on her and the
obsessive jealousy that nearly destroyed her friendship with Aubrey. At
her mother’s house, she excavates fragments of her past and notices hidden
messages in her deceased Guatemalan father’s book that didn’t stand out to
her earlier. To save herself, she must understand a story written before
she was born, but time keeps running out, and soon, all roads are leading
back to Frank’s cabin…. Utterly unique and captivating, The House in
the Pines keeps you guessing about whether we can ever fully confront the
past and return home. Read more
