Everyone has secrets. Lisa Harden has spent years polishing her image as a successful psychotherapist, highly respected and well known in her field. When a new patient appears in her office asking for therapy, Lisa is inexplicably unnerved and fights hard to keep up appearances. Only when the price of keeping her secret takes her to the brink of losing everything, including her marriage, does Lisa finally return to Canada to confront her past. But it may already be too late.

Reviews and Endorsements

‘What a fantastic achievement. As a compelling and exciting piece of detective fiction, Telling Time has you reaching hungrily for the next page; as an eloquent, moving and at times unsettling description of a therapist at work, Adams has you wanting to slow down and digest the rich seams of conversation her fictional therapist conducts with herself. This is a terrific and un-put-down-able story that may just leave you wondering in a slightly disquieting way whether you, like Lisa, ever use the therapist’s chair to remain safely hidden from yourself.’
— Elizabeth Meakins, psychoanalytic psychotherapist, author of What Will You Do With My Story?

‘I read this book twice! The ease and flow, and the musing tone of the narrator, feel almost hypnotising. Both the story and the language feel rich. There is an over-arching narrative about love, loss and defences – it is difficult to put down.’
— Sofie Bager-Charleson, author of Why Therapists Choose to Become Therapists
