They say everyone has a secret. For Grace Adams, her secret lies underground and was called Rose. She was nine years old when she died...
Grace has lived in the same idyllic Scottish village for almost her entire life. It is the perfect place to raise a family. But then she receives a call from her childhood best friend, Orla, who she hasn’t heard from in years - for good reason.
And when Orla threatens to finally tell the truth about what happened to a little girl called Rose more than 20 years ago, Grace may finally have to face the fact that her darkest secret cannot remain buried forever . . .

This is a story with many twists and turns. Deep understanding of human character and strong development of all characters. Loved the narrator! She covered a range of voices - young, old, male, female, Scottish, American.
"Mistakes of childhood"
This was a great listen. Chapters moving back and forth through time telling the story of Orlagh and Grace and how their friendship soured in the latter teen years. They both have secrets, but how deadly are they?
Really well written and suspenseful, I found Grace very likeable.
Although a little predictable in parts, I didn't want to stop listening!
