A mysterious young woman calling herself Jane turns up in a small New England town. She claims a fragmentary memory of growing up in this place, yet she has never been here before in her life. Upon her arrival, strange and alarming things begin happening to some of the town's inhabitants. As Jane's memories reawaken piece by piece, they carry her back to a long-buried secret, while the townspeople hurtle forward to a horrific event when past and present fatally collide

This book was like riding a roller coaster in the pitch black, you never know where the twists and turns will take you and when you’re done all you can say is “Wow”.

Jane Was Here took me a bit longer to get through, as you will notice is is an adult level reading book, not as light and fluid as the YA I tend to read more often. Deep descriptions, of not only place, but time bring you into this masterfully created story.

The simplest way to describe the plot is that Jane lived once long ago, and now is out to solve her cold case murder from centuries prior. Rich with suspense and almost constant curve balls, you are literally forced to pay clos attention to every tiny detail for fear of missing something important.

On more then half a dozen occasions I literally was moved from my seat in awe of Sarah Kernochan’s ability to meld this world together and have all the intertwining relationships I may have thought to be useless page filler at the very start, wrap up into one neatly delivered,  bone chilling package at the end.

Please note, there is graphic sexual content with in this book and I do suggest this for my 18+ fans.
