From the bestselling author of The Girl in the Corner comes a story that asks: how do you forgive the family that lied to you, and love the mum you never had?
When her loving, free-spirited grandmother Primrose passes away, Victoria is bereft, yet resilient—she has survived tragedy before. But even her strength is tested when a mysterious woman attends Prim’s funeral and claims to be the mother Victoria thought was dead.
As the two women get to know each other and Victoria begins to learn more about her past, it becomes clear that her beloved grandmother had been keeping life-changing secrets from her. Desperate for answers, she still struggles to trust anyone to tell her the truth.
To live a full and happy life, Victoria knows she must not only uncover the truth, but find a way to forgive her family. But after so many years, is trusting them even possible
Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley. Ive read and loved a few of Amanda’s books. She is a fantastic author who captures the essence of family.
This is a tale of loss,love,forgiveness and family. Can lies be forgiven? Especially ones that threaten to change everything? Can a new future be formed and can Victoria find who she really is to live a full life.
Written with emotion and sensitivity this is a beautiful book. As someone whos adopted it resonated with me a lot.
