Sleeping in Eden

(2013)
A novel by

 
 
The lives of a middle-aged doctor and a love-struck young woman intersect across time in Sleeping in Eden, Nicole Baart's haunting novel about love, jealousy, and the boundaries between loyalty and truth.
On a chilly morning in the Northwest Iowa town of Blackhawk, Dr. Lucas Hudson is filling in for the vacationing coroner on a seemingly open-and-shut suicide case.

His own life is crumbling around him, but when he unearths the body of a woman buried in the barn floor beneath the hanging corpse, he realizes this terrible discovery could change everything.

Lucas is almost certain the remains belong to Angela Sparks, the missing daughter of the man whose lifeless body dangles from a rope above. When Angela went missing years earlier, he and his wife never really believed she was just another teenage runaway.
Fueled by passion, Lucas resolves to uncover the details of Angela's suspected death, to bring some closure to their small community and to his wife.
 But his obsession may not be able to fix what is broken, and Lucas may be chasing shadows...

Years before Lucas ever set foot in Blackhawk, Meg Painter met Dylan Reid.
It was the summer before high school and the two quickly became inseparable.
Although Jess, Meg's older neighbor, was the safe choice, she couldn't let go of Dylan and the history they shared no matter how hard she tried.
 Caught in a web of jealousy and deceit that spiraled out of control, Meg's choices in the past ultimately collide with Lucas's investigation in the present, weaving together a taut story of unspoken secrets and the raw, complex passions of innocence lost.
