How far would you go to keep your daughter safe?
Everyone knows Leona would do anything for her daughter, Beth: she moved to Church Langdon to send Beth to the best school, built a business to support them and found the perfect little cottage to call home. They hike together, shop together, share their hopes and fears. It’s the relationship every mother dreams of.
But Leona never talks about why they moved to the Lake District.
She’s never told Beth anything about her father.
She says Beth should never speak to strangers. She says Beth doesn’t need friends.
She’s only trying to protect her daughter.
When Leona answers the phone one morning, her heart stops as she hears a voice from her past.
She’s given her daughter everything, but now she must tell her the truth. And once it’s out, can she keep her little girl safe?
Suspicions riddle the pages from the start! From the first chapter, I got the impression that Leona’s past was about to come crashing into her life. She is obviously afraid of someone and believes she hears her voice. This definitely hooked me and wanted me to keep reading.
It’s also suspicious when Beth tells her side of the story. At first, she seems like a typical teenager with some over protective parents. It doesn’t take long before you realize that something isn’t right with Beth either!
If you like a book with loads of tense moments, unpredictable characters and plot twists that would satisfy any reader of this genre, this book is for you!!! We give 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
