Summary

I will not think about it anymore. I won’t think about her. My lost little sister with her beautiful smile, her chestnut-colored eyes. My sister who I couldn’t protect.

If you passed Alice on the street, you couldn’t help but smile. At how she holds hands with her husband, Jack, who she has been with since she was at university. At the way she admires her three boys, the center of her universe.

But if you looked very closely, you’d see how tightly she holds Jack’s hand, afraid to let go. You’d see how carefully she watches her boys, scared to look away. You’d see her smile fading in a matter of seconds, and the pain she hides behind her eyes.

She has told Jack that she ran away from home when she was younger - but she didn’t tell him the whole story. Her husband doesn’t know about the guilt she bears about her little sister she failed to save.

Now, after a lifetime of fresh starts, Alice can feel her past playing catch-up. She is sure she is being watched, certain she is being followed. She may not be able to stop her secret coming out - but can she stop the world she has lovingly built collapsing in on her?

This utterly heartbreaking, beautifully written and gripping family drama examines just how far we are willing to go for our loved ones and the desperate decisions we make when we have no other choice. Fans of Jodi Picoult, Kerry Fisher, and Liane Moriarty will be blown away by this incredibly moving tale.

Boring

Didn’t really like the book. It was very long and dull. It was hard to feel invested in the characters. I’m tired of bad books.
