These books are a nice change from the more intense thrillers I usually read. They're good mysteries with plenty of humor and the reader does a great job with all of the voices.

Having not lived at this time in history, it was interesting to get a feel for the things people had to deal with then. I am glad, however, that I did not have to deal with those same things.

Veronica Cavanaugh’s grasp on the world is slipping. Her latest round of fertility treatments not only failed but left her on edge and unbalanced. And her three-year-old daughter, Elizabella, has a new imaginary friend, who seems much more devilish than playful. So when Veronica’s husband fails to return home from a business trip, what’s left of her stability begins to crumble. Given her family’s history of mental illness, and Elizabella’s insistence that her daddy is dead, Veronica starts questioning herself.

The Bird children have an idyllic childhood: a picture-book cottage in a country village, a warm, cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, sun-drenched afternoons in a rambling garden. But one Easter weekend a tragedy strikes the Bird family that is so devastating it tears them apart. Many years later something will call them home, back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.
