About the Book:
Getting pregnant as a teenager was never part of Kate's plan, but when it happens she's determined to do right by her daughter, showing her the love she never had as a child. Life as a single mother is hard, sometimes impossible, but it only brings Kate and Becky closer together. By the time Becky is making her own way in the world as a tenacious trainee journalist, Kate couldn't be prouder. But when the unthinkable happens, Kate's life is changed forever. Desperately trying to understand, Kate stumbles across a story Becky was researching. Is it possible that this cruel twist of fate wasn't an accident?
This book starts off slowly, building up rich, shrewdly observed characterization, tension and momentum as it goes along. We are drawn first of all into the dynamics of family relationships, and none quite so powerful as the one a mother has with her daughter.
I'm not going to give a synopsis because sometimes reviewers can say too much, and I hate that. With this book you need to come across every scene to understand the power they have. The twists and turns will send you dizzy, and make you feel so many emotions that this book should come with a hazard warning. An engrossing wonderful book, I am in awe of this authors imagination and how she deftly weaves this tale.
Bottom Line: I thought this was a pretty great suspenseful book. The plot was cleverly thought out and the writing very believable.
Thank you NetGalley, Michelle Frances and Pan Macmillan for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
