One family, one town, devastated by one tragic event.
Can you ever know what those closest to you are really capable of?
When Stephen gets a phone call to say his mother isn’t well, he knows he must go to her straight away. But he dreads going back there. He has never been able to understand why his mother chose to stay in the town he grew up in, after everything that happened. One day’s tragic events years before had left no one living there untouched.
Stephen’s own dark memories are still poisoning his life, as well as his marriage. Perhaps now is the time to go back and confront the place and the people of his shattered childhood. But will he ever be able to understand the crime that punctured their lives so brutally? How can a community move on from such a terrible legacy?
Thank you to Bookbridgr for sending me a copy to review .
The cover really intrigued me however the story didn’t match .
It took the whole book to actually find out this horrific crime that happened all those years ago, but for me by the time that was revealed it had lose its appeal .
A disappointing review im afraid as im still quite new to this .
I think older readers would enjoy it and those who have read the authors previous work .
