Summary

My baby girl, I’ll never forget you - your smile, your laugh, the way your hair sparkles in the sun. I cannot comprehend this pain. I cannot breathe through it.

In the middle of the night, Claire wakes up to discover that her beloved daughter, Julia, is dead - and life, as she knows it, is over.

Searching for answers, Claire stumbles upon a pile of letters, hidden under Julia’s bed in an old, battered shoebox, and feels closer to her daughter than ever before. They tell her that Julia was happy, that she was thriving at university, that she was in love. 

But as the letters go on, Claire starts to feel uneasy at something hidden between the lines. Even as she grieves, she must prepare to face a shocking discovery. Because Julia was hiding a terrible secret - and when it’s uncovered, it will make Claire question everything she thought she knew about her daughter....

An emotional and gripping story that will stay with you long after you finish. Fans of Liane Moriarty, Lisa Wingate, and Jodi Picoult will love this moving and poignant tale that's full of twists.

Didn't see that coming!

Really enjoyed this one!
Although I wanted a severe punishment for the accused! This one hit some emotional buttons!

Not great

I like Nicole Trope & enjoyed her otter books. However I found this entirely predictable very early on & found that annoying

Not as good as her other books

I have really enjoyed a few of her books but this one was obvious for me even as it felt like the book was being obviously deceptive. I don’t enjoy it when I can figure out all the twists a long time before the book reveal. Maybe just me.

Longer than necessary...

Although unlike other listeners, I didn’t know EXACTLY what was going to happen from the very beginning, but, I did have a pretty good idea. I kind of just wanted it to hurry up and be done so I could see if I was right. Which, I was. It was still a good story though.

Twist??

The “twist” in this story was transparent on page 2. I kept hoping it was wrong - that there was no way the story would be that obvious — of course I was disappointed. Bleh.

????huh???

I listen to a dozen books a month and this was the first one that I had to keep replaying chapters. It was easy to zone out and became painful to listen to how predictable it was. I knew the plot ending in the first few chapters. The only reason I kept listening was that I was hoping I could not possibly be correct.... I was.

I wanted to shake the main character due to her naive, simplistic thinking.

few hours into this book i already knew the end without giving too much thoughts. the story was ok but the end was weak and not what i was expecting from this author.
