Firstly thanks to Headline for sending me a beautiful proof copy to review ..It was covered in butterflies so I knew I was in for a summery treat .
There were certain parts I struggled to connect with at first but its a storyline that is really worth sticking with because it really is quite magical .
It is a story that unravels and is very mysterious .
Nina is on a journey of self discovery and to put the past to bed but what does she do when the past comes knocking ?
The relationship between mother and child features hugely in this book and how secrets can damage them .
I was shocked for most of the end part of the book , it shows things are not always as they seem .
A perfect summery read about love ,family and finding out where we come from .
