Imagine you get home one day… and waiting for you on your doorstep is a gift.
It is wrapped beautifully, and inside is a notebook, its pages empty. There is no message.
But its sender has a story to tell.
About a secret. About the little girl you once were. About everything you know about your family.
The gifts keep arriving. But when tragedy strikes – leaving your beloved only daughter fighting for her life – the person who has been sending the gifts will have no choice but to come forward. And to finally tell the truth…
To protect a loved one. That’s what we all want to do, right? Of course. There’s no doubt about it, but there is a fine line between doing that and stifling someone. But there is more. You might be convinced the only way to do it is the worst possible one.
The author introduces us to Lisa and allows us to sit on the front rows where the movie of her life unfolds before our eyes. We cry and laugh with her, love and hate with her, mourn and celebrate with her all the things she went and goes through on her way to a happy future.
A beautiful and emotion filled book with a great structure that I thoroughly enjoyed. The author never disappoints and always has me glued to my chair as well as to my box of tissues. 5 stars
Thank you, Anna Mansell and Bookouture
About the author
Anna spent almost twenty years trying to shoehorn writing in to her career as a marketing manager for dance and theatre companies. Eventually, she did what you are not remotely supposed to do and walked away from an excellent job in order to try and become a published author. Three years, lots of tears and some slightly hairy bank balances later, she met Kirsty Greenwood and the rest, as they say, is history. Anna lives in Cornwall with her husband and two kids. She feels very fortunate!
