Summary

He stole her childhood. Now she wants it back.

Mara Sitwell was only 11 when she went missing. Nineteen years later, she’s been found wandering through remote woodland, alone and confused. She says she’s been kept in an underground cell for all these years - but refuses to reveal anything about the man who snatched her. What does she have to hide? And who’s she protecting? Her brother-in-law, Damian, certainly doubts she’s telling the whole truth and fears she might even be a danger to his young children, especially when his wife insists on moving Mara into their home. To save his family, Damian will have to prove what really happened to Mara all those years ago. But the truth is never easy to uncover when it’s been buried so deep....

AJ Wills books just get better and better.

AJ’s gift is his brilliant starts that suck you straight into the story so you can’t put them down until you’ve got to the end. This one is no different - finished it in one day.

The return of a lost twin, who’s been held captive for eight years then suddenly returns is a great premise. But here it’s handled fantastically well through the point of view of the sister’s husband. What makes the story really compelling is the pressure her unexpected presence puts on our flawed protagonist whose wife becomes obsessed with caring for her long-lost sister and neglects him and the children.

No spoilers but it’s set up so well that one minute you’re rooting for one character and the next for another, so you don’t see the big twist coming until it’s right in your face and happening.

Another great story and engaging narration. AJ is an auto-buy author for me now and the next one is already in my library!

Good read

Love a good book with a twist.
Also enjoyed the dual aspects of the book too.

The female narrator sometimes sounded a little too happy for the part she was portraiting, but overall both narration and story were fab.
