What I Thought About This Novel

This is a hard to put down novel a page turner. It was a good read and is well written. It’s easy to follow the story line.

I really liked the wonderful characters in the novel especially Adam. The characters were very real and believable.

The novel highlights many aspects which are seen in many some home today which include domestic violence and child abuse.

This book show who domestic violence can end up as a murder. Suffering in silence can cost someone’s death.

This novel is quite emotional however I thought that the book was rushed at the end.


I highly recommend this novel to older teenagers and adults. If you like Jo Cox novels you will definitely like this one.

Over to you…
