‘They’re lying,’ my little stepson whispers, his blue eyes shining with tears as I tuck him into bed for the first time. ‘They think I’ve forgotten, but I remember everything. I know my mummy is still alive.’
My best friend warned me that it was too soon to marryEdward, a widower with an adorable but troubled little boy. She said we were moving too fast. But all I could see was a kind, loving man, struggling with grief, who needed my help.
Yet as storm clouds gather above our small wedding ceremony, my hopes and dreams fall apart. None of my husband’s family turn up to support us. Instead of a honeymoon, we have a quiet night in. My wedding bouquet is placed on his first wife’s grave. And then my new stepson tells me he’s sure his mother is still alive.
What does Noah remember and why is his father trying to make him forget? Have I been completely wrong about my husband? What happened to the woman who came before me, and how far will he go to stop me finding out the truth?
A great thriller! Middle aged widower proposes to the woman who homeschools his son. Match made in heaven. But as Lily begins to question why Edward insists on Noah’s homeschooling, Edwards answers seem too “tidy”. Why does Noah lead a secluded life? Why does Edward feel that he is too “sensitive” to go to public school?
Hmm…. Things don’t add up. Is Edward hiding something about his past, Noah’s past, his late wife’s past? The questions keep adding up but the answers don’t make sense.
