    This is without a doubt the most riveting book I have read in a long while. I so wanted to come here and say “bravo!”, particularly as i used to be always rather skeptical about book reviews, believing them to be ‘made up’, or written by family and friends. I am neither family nor friend; just an online reader who absolutely loved this book!

  • A Truly Brilliant Story

    An easy to read book and one I could almost have not put down. The story is believable because Ellie’s Mother has suffered so much over the years not knowing the truth. It’s not an icing on the cake affair, there are lots of losses and pain as well as happiness. The author brings out the emotions the Mother, Laura, has suffered over the years and truly describes how all her family are traumatised for ever because of the loss of Ellie. A dark thriller beautifully written and a definite new author for me to look out for.
