The Blurb

Two childhoods destroyed.
One story they will never tell.
Until now.

Beth ran away from her family when she was a teenager. She left behind a terrible evil that took her innocence. She also left behind her sister, Sara.

When Beth returns home, she is shocked to discover her terrible secret is not just hers alone…she shares it with Sara. Under the shadow of a remote headland, the sisters make an oath they promise never to break.

Eva’s birth is a mystery that remains unsolved. Years later with her marriage in ruins, and her future uncertain, she realizes that to move forward with her life, she must first understand her past.

But while Eva is drawing closer to the truth about her roots, Beth and Sara’s lives are falling apart, crushed under the weight of the secret they carry. They must confront the past and face the darkness once more. But this time, their story will be heard.

My Thoughts

Well, I suppose the good run had to finish somewhere. Unfortunately this book wasn’t for me. It’s a dark, emotional subject to read about and not one I shy from but I just found myself drifting off, I wasn’t submersed into the world Laura Elliot has created. The language and long sentence structure made it feel like an old novel and it put me off. I suppose I Just wasn’t the demographic this novel was aimed at.
