How far would you go to protect your child?
Four years ago, new mum Natalie was torn away from her beloved baby boy and sent to prison. She doesn’t remember the crime, but the evidence was all there.
Even her husband Tom didn’t believe her, then filed for divorce and took their son Harry to live on the Isle of Man – a place where Natalie has no legal rights. He claimed it was the safest place for them to be.
Natalie isn’t so sure.
As soon as she’s released, she goes in search of her four-year-old child… and some answers. But she may be in more danger than she can possibly realise…
What secrets has Natalie kept hidden? Can she get to Harry before her past catches up with her? And just how far would Natalie go to protect her son?
Old friends or new ones. They are there to watch your back, aren’t they …
One of the worst things is not being believed, especially by the people you love. It’s hard to fight against a wall of hard evidence. How can you pull through? The best way is to keep your eye on the ball and go for it, no matter what …
It’s Natalie’s story we read here. We are taken back to the past to see what went on and follow her in the present. But we also get little chapters where we can see into the mind of someone whose intentions are to be questioned.
It’s great to see Natalie’s change during the book. I have read it in one go and once again I had put my money on the wrong horse. I will never make it as a DI, but I thoroughly enjoyed trying to figure out who was capable of doing all those things.
I do believe a mother is like a lion when she wants to protect her child, but once you have that little person in your arms again, you can relax, can’t you …
My heart went out to Nathalie and her little boy. 5 stars.
