"BEFORE I WAKE is a compelling novel about how people are able to gain strength and move forward with their lives...a great story that has mystery, drama, love, and determination." - Fresh Fiction "An ominous atmosphere, a tense tale of past and present colliding, and a narrator whom no one believes: this book is a delight." - Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls "Stunning revelations from the past alternate with present-day chapters from the point of view of a woman named Susan. Although the years in the early '90s start as a blissful dream, they soon turn into a nightmare. Taylor has suspense down to a fine art." - RT Book Reviews "First-time author Taylor keeps the plot moving and knows how to layer on tension and bring it to a climax." - Library Journal
