All families have secrets, don’t they?

89-year-old Jeannette never meant to keep the truth from her family. But when a near fatal fall sends her to live with her granddaughter Amy, she finds herself revisiting a past that’s been hidden for too many years.

Amy, however, has always been good at keeping secrets. When ex-partner Nick shows up, she’s forced to admit that some things just can’t stay hidden forever.

Judith is starting from scratch – again. The master of reinvention, Amy’s mother has been seeking happiness in all the wrong places. This time though, she might just find it a lot closer to home than she ever believed she would…

As Jeannette’s 90th birthday party approaches, all three women discover they have more in common than they first thought, and the secrets from the past may be the key to unlocking the future.

Three women. Three generations. One legacy they all share…

Firstly a big thank you to Alainna for my copy and having me on the tour. As a single parent myself i jumped at the chance to review this.This was the winning entry for Gingerbread competition, who are a charity for single parents.

I loved it and its a amazing debut. History and nostalgic moments weave through the pages as we are taken back in time. Narrated at different eras and by different women of the families . Both mothers and both single mums.It is full of strong women, courage,bravery and love.The ex wasn’t a nice guy and i can relate with that!

It would be interesting to follow up with these characters and i think thats the sign of a good read when you connect to the storyline and the characters.

It’s been a month since Trisha’s dad was killed, wandering out drunk in front of the car Trisha is driving, and her mother grabs the wheel. To try to avoid him? To try NOT to avoid him? Trisha doesn’t know exactly what happened that night, but she’s afraid it’s going to happen again …
Love and violence. In some families they’re bound up together, dysfunctional and poisonous, passed from generation to generation like eye colour or a quirk of smile. Eighteen-year-old Trisha’s trying to break the chain, channelling her violent impulses into Muay Thai kickboxing, an unlikely sport for a slightly built girl of Indian descent. She’s the Canadian daughter of Trinidadian parents, whose own ancestors came over as indentured servants from India, replacing the Africans in the sugar fields after slavery was abolished. All that love and violence, identities warped and lost, passed on to her family, played out in every punch her father lands on her mother. Until the night he wanders out drunk in front of Trisha’s car, and everything changes for ever.

The Macnamara sisters hadn’t been seen for months before anyone noticed. It was Father Timoney who finally broke down the door, who saw what had become of them. Berenice was sitting in her armchair, surrounded by religious tracts. Rosaleen had crawled under her own bed, her face frozen in terror. Both had starved themselves to death.

Francesca Macnamara returns to Dublin after decades in the US, to find her family in ruins. Meanwhile, Detectives Vincent Swan and Gina Considine are convinced that there is more to the deaths than suicide. Because what little evidence there is, shows that someone was watching the sisters die.

Firstly again a big thank you to viper books. My goodness they publish good books!

This is another excellently written book.

Dark premise and incredibly chilling.

Mysterious and atmospheric. Set in the 1980s which was interesting as i was only a child then so this enabled me a new insight into that era. Add another layer of being set in a highly promient catholic area this was a fascinating read.

Who is telling the truth and what are the secrets of the dead?

I cant wait to read more in this series and from this author.
