Kate Rafter is a successful war reporter. She's the strong one. The one who escaped Herne Bay and the memories it holds. Her sister Sally didn't. Instead she drinks. But when their mother dies, Kate is forced to return to the old family home. And on her first night, she is woken by a terrifying scream. What secret has Kate stumbled upon? And is she strong enough to uncover the truth...and make it out alive?

    "hard going"

    very well narrated, compelling, but unremittingly miserable. Avoid if you are given to bouts of depression!!!

    "Is better in x1.5 speed"

    I nearly gave up on the book as I found the narration very melodramatic and needlessly slow with too many dramatic pauses. It actually ruined the main character for me.

    But then I decided to to play with the speed of the book reading (wanting to power through it faster) and found that playing it x1.5 cut out most of the melodrama and you got to enjoy the story.

    "Disappointing"

    I found this book hard going for the first half. Partly due to the book being over written and partly due to the first narrator emphasising and dramatising every sentence so it became extremely hard and irritating to listen to. It was a relief when the second narrator took over and from then the story flowed so much better. The story in itself was okay but could be told in half the time if the writing had been less indulgent and more concise.

    "Dramatic twists leaving you wanting to read more."

    Well written and easy to listen to. Great narration from both women. Would look for author again.

    Story
    "page turner but felt like a soap opera"

    The narrator was fantastic and the story kept me hooked. however, I felt the author was just going for the wow/shocking revelations factor too much and this led to various far fetched and over melodramatic moments. the main character, Kate, is very well built and easy to get into. I did not enjoy the emotional torture and distress and felt this book was just milking real tragedies. The twists are very amusing but still do not explain how the characters cannot just listen to each other and they are just fixated in their own perceptions. too much of this book relies on the characters blurred judgments due to alcohol or pills, this got boring after a while. Also, the main male character is extremely boring and unrealisticly kind to start with. despite all of this I could not stop listening!

    "Predictable, what an anti-climax!"

    If I ever hear that another book is the "next Gone Girl" or the "next Girl On A Train", I'm going to rate it 0.

    The genre has become predictable. There are three elements to look out for in these books:

    1. Neurotic women are usually right
    2. Nice men are psychopaths
    3. The women won't be believed by authorities until the very end

    And so goes this tale of two sisters, one who became a war correspondent suffering from post-traumatic stress, and the other an alcoholic - both abused as children. One's high functioning, the other is a deadbeat mother. In between are the stories of mysterious children appearing here, there and everywhere. And the women not being believed.

    The writer attempts to make a difference by bringing in stories of the horrors of the Middle East, which was a nice change - but it seemed more like a tool to follow exactly the pattern. It seemed promising but it falls short.
