Blurb; Her father abused her when she was a child. For years she was too afraid to speak out. But now she suspects he’s found another victim…
Laura, a young woman struggling to deal with what her father did to her a decade ago, is horrified to realise that the girl he takes swimming might be his next victim. Emma is twelve – the age Laura was when her father took away her innocence.
Intimidated by her father’s rages, Laura has never told anyone the truth about her childhood. Now she must decide whether she has the courage to expose him and face the consequences.
Can Laura overcome her fear and save Emma before the worst happens?
My Review; I’m going to start by saying this is one tough book to read! Very emotional, a hard read for me as parts hit a little too close to home. But nevertheless I read it all and parts can be a bit dark and out there in your face. But it is a good story!
Thinking about it, it’s also a powerful story with a hidden message. I felt all sorts of emotions throughout reading this story and I look up to Lauras character. This is a story that every reader can learn from or take something away from it, a story that makes the reader think! I understand it may not appeal to some readers due to the dark side of the story and abuse involved but it is written brilliantly.
A well deserved four stars from myself.
