About the Book:
When her loving, free-spirited grandmother Primrose passes away, Victoria is bereft, yet resilient—she has survived tragedy before. But even her strength is tested when a mysterious woman attends Prim’s funeral and claims to be the mother Victoria thought was dead. As the two women get to know each other and Victoria begins to learn more about her past, it becomes clear that her beloved grandmother had been keeping life-changing secrets from her. Desperate for answers, she still struggles to trust anyone to tell her the truth. To live a full and happy life, Victoria knows she must not only uncover the truth, but find a way to forgive her family. But after so many years, is trusting them even possible?

That’s the things with lies, darling; they are like wounds that never quite heal, the hurt goes too deep. It’s not only the thing that is said or done that rankles, it’s also the fact that the person lying to you thinks you are stupid enough to fall for it.

What a fantastic read. I so enjoyed this book, loving it from the very first paragraph. What else can I say? Amanda Prowse never fails to deliver a novel that keeps me engrossed. Her knowledge and ability to write about human relationships is second to none and she is a master at making the ordinary sound extraordinary.

This is a book that I can recommend on so many levels. Not only is it beautifully written but it shows how each member of a family unit is damaged by secrets and lies within the family and how they live their lives and conduct their relationships as a result of those lies. With grace and care the author shows that despite living or growing up with an addiction we are all responsible for our own lives and happiness and that happiness can be a choice. Amanda Prowse never ceases to amaze me, this book is no exception, never a disappointment, I eagerly await her next.

Thank you NetGalley, Amazon Publishing UK and Amanda Prowse for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
