My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when I picked this book up. It was dark and compelling and beautifully written. There are secrets and twists, deftly revealed like cards being turned over. When I finished reading it, I felt like I was resurfacing from deep immersion. That’s a rare thing to find.
Jen’s grandmother, Lily, has died and Jen needs to sort out Lily’s house. A place with many happy memories, but somewhere she hasn’t visited for many, many years. Jen brings with her her 12 year old daughter Marianne.
Going through Lily’s stuff, Jen uncovers secrets and memories long buried.
Brilliant book. Dark and twisty without being a thriller.
