LoveReading Says

One of our Books of the Year 2014.

A riveting and powerful read, from the very first page to the last you are caught up in this intriguing tale of grief and guilt. We hear the tale from Harry and Robin, both have harboured damaging feelings of remorse, for very different reasons. Their stories are soulful and captivating, revealing more about them than they would ever want us to know. We witness two people in love, hurting themselves and each other; and one little boy, still in their hearts, their minds and could he possibly be in sight? Suspense builds, subtly concealed amongst secrets that linger just out of view.  The authors clever and impactive writing, from a hot sensuous Tangier to a tense sorrowful Dublin, hints at the distressing storm waiting to break. As a sense of foreboding slips across the pages, we wonder, we question, we wait.
