Summary

A heartbreaking page turner with an unexpected ending....

A heartbreaking story of family secrets from the USA Today best-selling author of Gracie’s Secret. Perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain. 

I know you. I know you in a way you can’t even imagine. I have been searching for you in the years since you wrote that letter - the letter that told me you were looking for me too. But now that I’ve found you, I don’t know if I can say the terrible truth of what I am. It would ruin your perfect life. It would hurt your beautiful daughter.

So, I hesitate - bide my time, for now. This morning, you’re running late and your little girl, tugged by the hand, scurries to keep up with you. She’s clean but a little scrawny. Maybe that’s because you struggle with the bills; maybe she’s just made that way. 

I know what it is to have lost a child. I pray you never learn how that feels. But I can’t wait forever… and when I finally tell you my secret, will it break you like it did me all those years ago?
 

"Riveting… Emotional! This was a brilliant fast-paced domestic drama!... A compelling story full of all the twists and turns." (Audio Killed the Bookmark)
 

"The characters are flawed but show great emotion… The author has tremendous insight into the mind of a young child… If you like domestic thrillers, emotion-packed drama, and a gripping storyline, this book is definitely for you." (Waggy Tales Dog Blog, 5 stars)
 

"You did not know who to trust and who kept which secret. Everybody seemed suspicious…. When the culprit was finally revealed and all secrets were in the open, I could not believe my eyes. Not even in my wildest dream could I have guessed that! Fast paced…. emotional." (B for Book Reviews, 5 stars)

I loved it!

Not a book I'd have chosen to read on my own - this was a choice from my monthly book club. However, I honestly cant wait to sit down with them and discuss it!!

I loved every single character- each one bringing a special role to this story. I really enjoyed the twist - although I'd already guessed it - it was a good transition in the story.

My only critique (and it's really very minor) is that Maddie's internal monologue tended to repeat itself and drag on a little too long for my liking about 2 thirds of the way in. I'd have preferred to hear Sarah's thoughts more.

I'd definitely recommend this book! the narrator was brilliant - I loved her voice and the subtle changes she brought about with each character. I will be looking forward to hearing her again!!
