A mother’s job is to protect her child…but everyone makes mistakes.
I never thought it would happen to me…
One moment I had it all – a gorgeous husband, a beautiful home, a fulfilling career and two adorable children. The next, everything came crashing down around me.
They said it was my fault. They said I’m the worst mother in the world. And even though I can’t remember what happened that day, they wouldn’t lie to me. These are my friends, my family, people I trust.
But then why do I have this creeping sensation that something is wrong? Why do I feel like people are keeping secrets? Am I really as guilty as they say? And if I’m not, what will happen when the truth comes out…?
I really enjoyed this book!!
I did think that this book had a very slow build up compared to what I would normally read and it did have me trying to guess what had gone on during that time – you knew what ever had happened was bad but the author doesn’t confirm what did occur until you get a little further in to the book.
I have to say being a mum to a young daughter I was shocked and appalled so needed to know more straight away – was everything all as it seemed? I had my own thoughts about what had happened and doubted myself, changed my mind and kept going over it again, the book had me hooked and captivated and for that alone it was very good. The story is a genuine one and something you can believe would happen too.
I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the characters, but due to the main story line that is not really surprising but that did not affect my enjoyment of the book, in fact it gave it an added edge for me.
It is 4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 star for Goodreads and Amazon, a very good story that gradually builds up the suspense and doubt- very highly recommended!
