Publisher's Summary

A new devastating psychological thriller from the author of the best-selling The Good Mother.

Angela was just a baby when she was abandoned, and a children's home is no place to grow up. When manager Ray takes girls off to his 'den' in the garden, they always come back crying....

So, when wealthy couple James and Rosemary come to choose a child to adopt, Angela is desperate to escape. Years later, Angela starts to search for her birth mother, Evelyn, hoping to heal the scars of her childhood. But strange and sinister events start to unfold. And Evelyn fears she may not survive her daughter's return.

Did not see the twist coming

What an awesome book. I was engrossed in this story. So much so that I never saw the twist. I actually screamed "Oh my god" out loud in my car. And Imogen Church is amazing as always!!!!

Good until the end

This story was pretty good... up until the end.
Not sure what happened but towards the end it got so jumbled & confusing that it ultimately ruined the entire book for me. It was like the author just couldn't figure out what to do & walked away from the book & then went back weeks later & didn't read over what they had done previously so they just started w/the idea they came up while they were away.
A character was in one place, then next scene was in a different place, then next scene was in another different place.. it didn't make any sense and just left me completely confused.
Then the reveal... weak.
Was not a fan of this book.

Narration was excellent

But I found that the first 75% of story was a bit too long and drawn out ...then everything happens in last few chapters. The story also goes back in time, then to present time, and I couldn't always work out who the character was (maybe I wasn't paying attention).
