If You Knew Her

If You Knew Her by Emily Elgar.
Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: Harper Paperbacks (January 23, 2018)
ISBN-10: 006269460X

Amazon Review:

A woman in a coma.
The man who could save her life—if only he could speak.
When young, beautiful Cassie Jensen arrives unconscious to the intensive care ward at St. Catherine’s hospital after being struck in a hit-and-run while out walking her dog, chief nurse Alice Marlowe thinks she looks familiar. She starts digging deeper into Cassie’s relationships, only to discover something about her patient that she’d been keeping secret from everyone, including her devoted husband and family. Soon Alice finds herself obsessed with her patient’s past and future, even willing to put her own career on the line in her single-minded search for answers. 

Frank, a patient on the same ward who has locked-in syndrome, can hear and see everything around him but cannot speak. Soon he comes to understand that Cassie’s life is still in danger. While the police continue to look for clues, only Frank holds the truth, but he’s unable to communicate it. 

As the novel flashes between points of view, the reader will get closer and closer to the truth of who Cassie Jensen was, and why she was out on the road that fateful night . . .

I can't remember where I picked this book up but it turned out to  be  and enjoyable read....for most of it.  One sad part.  Anyway.  Each chapter was one about one of the characters in the story, and how, slowly, it all started to come together.  But,  you still weren't sure until the very end.

I liked that it was different in that two characters were in comas.  Both were thought not to recover. But one's brain was fully functional and heard everything that went on in the hospital and especially the room he was in...   I like it when a character is different and interesting!

So if you like something a touch different this might be a good one for you.
