It’s late. The phone rings.
The man on the other end says his daughter is missing.
The baby you gave away over fifteen years ago.
What do you do?
Nora Watts isn’t sure that she wants to get involved. Troubled, messed up, and with more than enough problems of her own, Nora doesn’t want to revisit the past. But then she sees the photograph. A girl, a teenager, with her eyes. How can she turn her back on her?
But going in search of her daughter brings Nora into contact with a past that she would rather forget, a past that she has worked hard to put behind her, but which is always there, waiting for her . . .
In Eyes Like Mine, Sheena Kamal has created a kick-ass protagonist who will give Lisbeth Salander a run for her money. Intuitive, not always likeable, and deeply flawed, Nora Watts is a new heroine for our time.
Firstly thanks to Emily for sending me a copy to review ,everything about this book intrigued me . Plus I have no doubt with the finished cover it will be flying off the shelves .
This is a dark read full of intrigue and mystery. Set in Canada you can almost feel the cold weather as the writing is extremely descriptive and sets the atmosphere .
As much as the storyline is about a missing daughter we soon realise we are reading Nora’s story and how she got to where and who she is today.
she’s not had it easy and you easily start to understand and connect with this woman . From a troubled childhood to addiction it was no wonder that motherhood wasn’t for her .
But when a call comes late In the night ,she shouldn’t be getting involved or feeling but she is …mothers instinct I imagine starts to kick in .
I imagine Nora could come across a unlikeable character but I see her as strong determined and very feisty.
Fast paced and full of grit this will have the reader hooked straight away .
