"This is a well-paced novel that combines family drama with mystery as a woman’s search for the truth leaves her life irrevocably changed."
Turning to the mystery found in a set of journals leaves Amber contemplating what she’s willing to risk in a search for justice. Amber is someone who lives her life for her family, but all she wants is to find her long lost twin brother. While waiting to meet the family solicitor to urge that she is given the information she needs to find him, she discovers an intriguing stack of journals. Fighting against her manipulative husband and father and being drawn deeper into the mystery of the journals’ owner, Amber’s life starts to unravel, leaving her with the decision to make about what she’s willing to sacrifice to reconnect with her family and find out the truth of what happened to a talented teacher all those years ago. Amber is put in a difficult position in a lot of points in this book, with an undermining husband and controlling father leaving her feeling unsure despite her longing to find her brother. Combining both family drama and mystery, this is an engaging story with lots of twists. Amber’s husband and father made for sinister antagonists as the dysfunctional family dynamics are put on display and I hoped as I read that Amber would have the strength to follow her own path regardless. Once committed the plot unravels quickly as the search to find out who the journals belong to has Amber working through the events of her own past. This is a well-paced novel that combines family drama with mystery as a woman’s search for the truth leaves her life irrevocably changed.
