Publisher's Summary

A haunting domestic drama about families and secrets, perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, Shalini Boland and Lisa Jewell.  

She’ll never forget...I’ll never forgive.

People always notice my daughter, Isobel. How could they not? Incredibly beautiful...until she speaks.   

An unsettling little-girl voice, exactly like a child’s, but from the mouth of a full-grown woman.   

Izzie might look grown up, but inside she’s trapped. Caught in the day it happened...the day that broke her from within. Our family fell apart that day, and we never could pick up the pieces....

Difficult to put down.

I did not expect the ending! I loved the way the characters were developed. the story unfolded slowly and at times I was confused as to genre of the story for a moment I thought this was a semi-horror. However, the end put everything into perspective.

Well paced and gripping thriller

All through the book we're given hints of mysteries that we hope will be explained later, and this alongside a gentle flow of actual revelations, so there's never a flat bit.

The ending moves at a very fast pace and I found I had to concentrate so as not to miss something.

The story is about Tim and Clare who move from the London area to buy an old property in rural Shropshire, and also about Eve Parks and her daughter Isabel who are selling the property to live in a smaller place nearby.

Mainly the book revolves around the relationships between and among the people in the two families and their Shropshire neighbours. Quite a clever plot really. It does involve Voodoo, black magic and similar things, so maybe not one to listen to in the middle of the night on your own. Balancing the supernatural we have Clare a partly trained psychologist who is sure there must be a rational explanation for everything.

Good narration by Clare Corbett. Great range of voices.
