Blurb; “There’s no place like home” – that’s what I tell myself as I pull another flawless meal from the oven. This perfect house on a quiet street was supposed to be my sanctuary, a place to recover. But everything changed the moment I saw that woman in the charity shop. She triggered something dark, buried deep within my memory…
Now I’ve started forgetting small things, like locking the front door.
And bigger things, like remembering to pick my little girl up from nursery.
I feel terrified every time I pass through a particular spot in our living room.
And sometimes, when I’m alone, I’m sure I can hear a baby crying…
I think the woman in the shop knows what happened to me. But if I can’t trust myself to believe she’s real, who will?
My Review; Oooh this was a good one. Plenty of secrets, twists and turns. I really felt sorry for Diane throughout, she obviously had a hidden past she couldnt uncover and felt unloved. She is a strong, determined character. Emma is a little cutie! Anne is a great friend to have, I loved her character!
Towards the end it starts to heat up and wow! A jaw dropping, shocking, unexpected outcome. Us mothers would do anything for our children and she did just that. Towards the end the story highlights an issue that is still evident and still happens to this day which is heart breaking and real.
Brilliantly written. Easy to read. Short chapters. Fast paced. I needed to find out answers for poor Diane. A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend.
