I read it in the past 12 months---not on my Bookshelf or Transaction Archive, so I assume it was a library book---I remember it was hardcover and probably published in the past year or so.
Tale opens with young girl awakening frighten and blood-soaked in a cave. She can't remember anything---not even her name. I believe there is also a dead body of a man. Somehow she staggers out and gets involved with a young man who, if my blurred impression is correct, was a combo Valley Boy + Lumberjack. She seduces him. (She's not as young as you think!) Together they learn the truth about her history. Is this enough info---I think it should be if someone has read it, but not so much to spoil if someone wants to read it. NOT a YA.
The book finished and you could tell it would be open to a sequel, but when I went in to see if that was out yet, I learned that, sadly, the author (she) had passed away recently so...no sequel. (I didn't mean that to sound cold or anything.) Apparently the author---oh, I wish I could remember---was well-known, had won wards in either sci-fi or fantasy arena. And for some reason I think she was black.
Is that enough info? Thanks much!
