Towards The Vanishing Point BT Poster

What would you do if your best friend was about to risk everything?

In the North of England in 1938, two ten-year-old girls, Lily Hetherington and Stella Marsden, form a close if unlikely friendship that endures despite their wartime experiences. After the war, the two women are working as nursing auxiliaries when Lily meets male nurse Will Bagshaw. Stella begins to hear sinister rumours about the man, but the besotted Lily won’t listen to a word said against him. Can Stella make her see sense before it’s too late?

Building to a tense, dramatic climax, this is a story of friendship, love, loyalty and the ultimate betrayal.

A must for fans of Daphne Du Maurier, Patricia Highsmith, James Neff and Lisa Gardner.



I really enjoyed this story, there was plenty going on in each chapter and I loved the feel of the book when I was reading it.

Anyone who follows my blog will know I am a huge fan of historical fiction and this book certainly caught my interest.   I loved the mix of genres, the book has a mix of betrayal, friendship, love and loyalty.

I really liked the characterisation in the book and the different characters I thought worked really well and their interaction made the book for me.

I thought that the story was well written and I loved the setting and the author really brought the period to life for me.  This is the first book that I have read by this author but I enjoyed it so much I am certain that it won’t be my last.

It is 4 stars from me for this one, I really enjoyed it – highly recommended!!
