When the book opens, Dr. Jennifer Whiteâs best friend, Amanda, has been killed, and four fingers surgically removed from her hand. Dr. White is the prime suspect and she herself doesnât know whether she did it. Told in Whiteâs own voice, fractured and eloquent, a picture emerges of the surprisingly intimate, complex alliance between these life-long friendsÂtwo proud, forceful women who were at times each otherâs most formidable adversaries. As the investigation into the murder deepens and Whiteâs relationships with her live-in caretaker and two grown children intensify, a chilling question lingers: is Whiteâs shattered memory preventing her from revealing the truth or helping her hide it?
A startling portrait of a disintegrating mind clinging to reality through anger, frustration, shame, and unspeakable loss, Turn of Mind examines the deception and frailty of memory and how it defines our very existence.
