About the Book:
Hannah Brown never thought she’d have a best friend like Ellen Brecht. Ellen is everything she isn’t – beautiful, daring, glamorous and fierce. Growing up together in rural Cornwall, life seems perfect. But their idyllic childhood is shattered by obsession, betrayal and, ultimately, tragedy. Hannah has tried for twenty years to forget what happened during that terrible summer. Then, one ordinary morning at work, she glimpses a woman who is identical to Ellen. Can it really be her? And has Ellen returned to forgive her – or to punish her?

My Review:
This was an interesting story-line linking the past with the here and now. Such a well written book about young friendship, love and coming of age and how the past can haunt us. It was beautifully written and moved effortlessly from past to present and back again without losing the plot. I loved the poetic writing with emphasis on prose and style. The words were so beautiful and there were so many secrets which weren't revealed until the end of the book and they took me by surprise.

A beautiful book on the inside with a gorgeous cover on the outside. I loved the characters the setting and the story. It was something different yet held my interest until the last page. I highly  recommend this book to anyone wanting a moving read that leaves you wanting more. Thank you Louise Douglas for such a beautiful, agonizingly poignant book...I look forward to reading your others.

Thank you NetGalley, Louise Douglas and Boldwood Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
