Her latest novel Entropy will be released in May. Here is a description of the novel:
Janet Bookman Baker is trying to come to terms with her father’s death and a weekend long ago when he disappeared without a word. She sits alone at night watching the lights in her neighbour’s garden, imagining his hands on her skin and listening to a voice on the radio. Although she has never met the owner of the voice, in Janet’s mind, Anna becomes her closest friend…
Unaware of Janet’s existence, Anna Taylor is facing a crisis of her own. When someone starts leaving her messages, she becomes convinced the person behind them holds the key to her past as well as her future. A mysterious 19th century photograph seems to link the two women, but as they discover the ties that bind them, they are forced to question all they know, and to ask themselves whether they are prepared to risk everything to be free.
