Tia never harmed anyone. So why does someone want to destroy her?
Tia is walking home with her children, along the lakeside of their quiet, safe town, when she realises something is wrong with her five-year-old daughter, Rosie. She seems troubled, not at all her usual happy self.
But when Tia finally coaxes Rosie to open up, she wishes she hadn’t. Because her sweet daughter asks a question Tia never thought she’d hear.
‘Why did you kill someone?’
Tia knows how rumours spread around her small town. She just can’t understand who would have shared such a horrible story. Or why.
It can’t have anything to do with what happened. Only her two best friends really remember that…
Tia thought she could trust Fiona and Kelly with her life. They’ve been through so much together. But when she’s sent photos of herself that could tear her whole world apart, she starts to wonder. Someone is determined to punish her. But who? And will her friends stand by her, or will the past destroy all of their lives?
You should leave the past behind, but it’s easier said than done. Some people struggle to do so and let the past rule the present and the future. Some want to forget. Some want to keep the flame burning and settle the score, even if it takes years.
When you are a child you often see things that happen to adults differently and you don’t always get what is going on. What you do understand and suffer from are the consequences that reflect on your own life and those around you.
The author really knows how to keep her readers hostage with her incredible fluent style and fascinating story. Every book I have read by her is one to cherish. 5 stars.
Thank you, Shalini Boland and Bookouture
