I have a gardener’s inherent belief in the natural order of things. Soft-petalled flowers that go to seed. The resolute passage of the seasons. Swallows that fly thousands of miles to follow the eternal summer.
Children who don’t die before their parents.
A community in shock
When eighteen-year-old Rosie Anderson disappears, the idyllic village where she lived will never be the same again. Local gardener Kate is struck with guilt. She’d come to know Rosie well, and thought she understood her – perhaps better even than Rosie’s own mother.
A family torn apart
Rosie was beautiful, kind and gentle. She came from a loving family and she had her whole life ahead of her. Who could possibly want to harm her? And why?
A keeper of secrets
Kate is convinced the police are missing something. She’s certain that someone in the village knows more than they’re letting on. As the investigation deepens, so does Kate’s obsession with solving the mystery of what happened to Rosie.
This is a book I have had to write my review instantly after finishing as need to capture the freshness of my thoughts .
This book is a debut which I find unbelievable .Its written with such confidence and is so original .
It gets under your skin and I couldn’t wait to read at every opportunity I had. Its a game of guess who and whos hiding the truth ?
Its a book and a author to keep in your radar as I have a feeling both will leave a impression .
Whilst reading I was able to feel how each of the main characters were feeling until the big reveal and its like woah ….ok I didn’t see that coming .
Grief and panic hits the community and makes people fearful and change their outlook and judgements.
Addictive and compelling and in simple terms a real page turner.
The cover is fantastic and really captures the tone of the story .
A big thanks to Lauren at Pan macmillian for kindly sending me a copy to review .
I wish Debbie every success with the release of this exciting psychological thriller .
