‘When it finally arrived I was shocked to see it; to read the words Mum wrote about these women fighting for rights I know I take for granted. Mum was here. And while she was, something happened that changed the entire course of my life. Perhaps, if I can summon the courage, the next eight weeks will help me finally figure out what that was . . .’
When Jessica discovers a shocking secret about her birth, she leaves her London home and travels to Switzerland in search of answers. She knows her journalist mother spent time in the country forty years earlier, reporting on the Swiss women’s liberation movement, but what she doesn’t know is what happened to her while she was there. Can Jess summon the courage to face the truth about her family, or will her search only hurt herself and those around her even more?
Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley. A debut author and a fantastic first book.
I was transported away through the power of words , set in beautiful Switzerland.
Evocative,atmospheric and descriptive.
Thought provoking and gripping I raced through this eager to know the truth.
Beautifully written and captures the readers imagination.
