Details: Product Description From the author of The Girl Before comes a tense and incisive work of psychological suspense that examines how easy it is to fall into the wrong relationship...and how impossible it can be to leave. In the wake of a painful breakup and struggling to prove herself at work, Julia feels adrift. When Bryce blows into her life, he seems like the perfect anchor. Handsome, charming, secure, and confident, Bryce brings out the best in Julia, sweeping her off her feet with attention and affection while grounding her with his certainty and faith. Together they embark on a path guided by the principles of his family and their church, each step a paving stone leading to happily ever after. But this is no fairy tale. Step by step, one small concession leading to another, Julia is slowly isolated from her job, her friends, and her family, until she comes to find that her dream come true is a cage. Then one day everything changes...and Julia is faced with no choice but to find a way out. Review Praise for With You Always“Compulsively readable.”— Kirkus Reviews“The psychological suspense ramps up to the final pages....Olsen, whose debut was  The Girl Before (2016), has another page-turner here.”— Booklist Praise for The Girl Before “Easily the most disturbing and unsettling book I have read this year....As in the best suspense novels, there are mysteries within mysteries, and all is not what it seems—not to Clara, and definitely not to the reader.”—BookPage, A BookPage Best Mystery of 2016   “Gripping...A powerful, moving debut by therapist Olsen in which cruelty is counterbalanced by compassion and love.”— Booklist (starred review)   “[A] thoughtful look at victims and perpetrators and the difficulties that arise for someone who is both at once....[ The Girl Before] moves at the pace of a mystery, but the novel is strongest when it allows Clara to unpack her past and consider who she will be going forward. A moving story of recovery and responsibility.”— Kirkus Reviews “[A] suspenseful but disturbing debut.”— Publishers Weekly “I couldn't put it down. The novel is compelling, perplexing, and ultimately uplifting! The unusual structure is a perfect match for the magnetic voice of the central character. I predict this daring debut novel will make Rena Olsen “the girl ahead” among psychological suspense authors.”—Karen Harper, New York Times bestselling author of Upon a Winter’s Night About the Author Rena Olsen is the author of The Girl Before, a Booklist top mystery debut of 2016.

My stuffy desk area barely got sunlight from the window at the end of the hall, and I was feeling claustrophobic. I imagined myself as one of those urbane businesswomen, sitting on the edge of the fountain at the park across the street, sipping coffee from a well-worn travel mug while flipping through very important reports, pausing to smile at the children playing at the park. Passersby would notice me, respect my tenacity to work through the lunch hour. "How sophisticated she must be," they would say to each other. The reality, unfortunately, was far from my fantasy. The sun, dim from my desk, was brighter than I expected, and I had to squint against the blinding whiteness of the paper to make out the columns of numbers that made up my boss's expense report. The coffee I'd picked up was already cold in the paper cup next to me, and the wind was threatening to snatch the reports right out of my hands. Not to mention
