MY REVIEW

Emotions abounded at the situations of the past that spilled over into the present making it desperation and anger.

A complex situation that Nicci found herself in when the events abd people of the past threatened the safety of her son. The mother was ready to protect her child at all cost.

Author Sam Hepburn’s writing with layers in the plotline had me scurrying to get to the truth. I had an idea where the story would go, but it was fun to see all the dots connected precisely.

Couldn’t connect or like any of the characters, but that didn’t matter much as the subplots were dark and convoluted enough to keep me reading till I reached the end.

A mother’s love at being threatened was at the forefront in the book which proved that like her or hate her, she was A Good Mother to her son.

MY RATING

Rating: 4 out of 5.

BOOK BLURB

I see my son’s scooter lying in the undergrowth. Time stands still. Where is he? Deafened by my own heartbeat, I keep looking but I can’t see him. This is all my fault. My punishment for the things I did, and the things I should have done.

All I ever wanted was to keep my son safe. I married the perfect husband, built the perfect home. I’ve tried to give Finn the life I never had.

Everything was going so well. Until now.

It’s just small things at first – a punctured tyre, an open gate that I’m sure I locked. But then I see the photograph of two young girls, and a night I’ve tried to forget.

I know I have to stop pretending that nothing is happening. I can’t escape the truth.

Someone knows my secret. But what do they want from me?

Publication Date: May 2021

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

  1. Great review as always, Shalini. That blurb really got my heart beating thinking about how many times I have seen my kids’ toys lying around outside…

  2. Being able to enjoy a book despite not connecting to any of the characters is definitely a sign of some very good writing. I am yet to read this author but definitely have me intrigued. Great review.
