Wow! This was an intense psychological experiment. As an employee in an academic Psychology Department, this book was scary. I know that there are experimenters who push the envelope, but the extent Dr. Shields goes to “conduct her experiment” is atrocious.
No matter what you think of Dr. Shields’ integrity, this book was disturbing in many ways. Jessica finds herself sucked into the doctor’s psychological experiment which leads her to share secrets she has shared with no one else. You learn so much about Jessica, her past, her current life, and the things that have brought her to this point in life.
And how would you respond if you were faced with a spouse’s infidelity? This book takes the psychological experiment to a new level. Just hang in there and you will find yourself gasping in shock as you discover new aspects to Dr. Shields; her husband, Thomas; and Jessica. And wait until you get to the last chapter…hold onto your seat!
