Publisher's Summary

Maddie Castle is broken. Ever since the tragedy that struck on her twins' 10th birthday, she's been trying to fit the pieces together, to get back to the life she led before. Maddie, her husband, Dom, and their children, Aidan and Annabel, lived in a comfortable home on a quiet street in a London suburb. Life was busy and satisfying. They were happy. Weren't they? 

Now, a disoriented and grieving Maddie floats like a ghost through each day, hardly sleeping, eating, or speaking. It's easier to stay locked in her own head than to torment herself by reliving what happened. And yet, the harder Maddie tries to pin down her memories, the more they slip out of reach. Is her guilt and remorse justified? Is it Maddie's fault that everything was ripped apart? 

Or could it be that the real terror is still to come?

I was crying my eyes out for the last five minutes

This was an awesome book! It started out immediately grabbing my attention and never let go until the end. If you are a mom trust me, it's an emotional ride. Many times I could have punched the wall and the next thing I knew, my heart was breaking. This was a very intense book and I really enjoyed listening to the narrator tell the tale. All around, totally worth the money. 😀😀😀😀

Insipid story and narration

This was painful to listen to. The male voices are okay, but the protagonist is whinier than whiney throughout. I jumped ahead to find out what happened rather than quitting it altogether, so that's something.
