Firstly a big thank you to Becky for my proof copy to review.

I absolutely loved her previous books so was eager to read this.

What a amazing book full of emotion and insight into a time gone by.

Full of history its fascinating to get a glimpse of a different world.

Powerful subject for me on a personal level.

This is the story of a lie that set the path to someone’s destiny, incredibly thought provoking.

Told in alternate narratives and timelines this captures the essence of each charactar and their lives.

Twists and turns that eventually expose the truth what will happen?

Can people have second chances?

Kathryn is a evocative writer who creates escapism for her readers but also hits the feelings hard!
