Thanks for a free netgalley copy of this book in exchange for review, I’d seen this book being talked about on twitter and my interest piqued.  When Beth was young her parents separated leaving her and her sister with her mum who relied on her uncle for help.  When events take a sinister turn Beth flees her home and goes to live with her dad and his new girlfriend – eventually with the death of her father she is returned home to her village but her sister is unhappy with her sister’s abandonment and not ready to talk to her.

It seems however that Sara is also hiding a terrible secret which she ends up unable to conceal from Beth, this secret binds them together into adulthood.  Where we then find that Beth too is keeping a big secret from her daughter and brother in law.

A story which features of tangled web of family secrets that will keep you returning to the page for more. You can’t help but feel for Beth who has faced so much in her life and led a life full of secrets, although the secrets are more or less revealed by the e, you can’t help but wonder why she didn’t reveal them to those closest to her much earlier.

Another fab read from Bookouture
