It starts with forgetting to lock the refrigerator door, with the letter received from the mother who abandoned her twenty-five years earlier, in a whirlwind of awakening which will force Sylvie out of the predictable life she has come to know.
Poisoned in a nearly fatal accident as a child, Sylvie now exists in a world where strict self-imposed limitations are never to be questioned. Sometimes, though, entire empires are forced to crumble, and hers is no exception.
After learning she occupies the apartment of a once murdered woman, Sylvie uses news reports about the murder to create another identity–a dual identity capable of accomplishing anything.
Sylvie will learn that more frightening than fighting her fears is battling her perception of self. While breaking the shackles caging her in appears at first to be the answer, she soon realizes she no longer knows who she is. After all, what have you accomplished when living a lie–and, who are you once you aren’t who you always understood yourself to be?
In a schizophrenic tale of dual identities, readers will see there is more than one way of Poisoning Sylvie!
