I enjoyed this book. I went with the flow of the story without thinking too much about the plot line. I just wanted to get to the finish line to know the real truth of what happened that night at the park which landed Emma in a mental facility.
Alex Sinclair has done a good job in maintaining the fast pace of the plot line, with easy to read chapters without focusing too much on the politics of the mental facility. A state funded facility has its own problems of unscrupulous staff, and Alex has touched upon it without making the story too gruesome. And I thank him for that.
The whole story focuses on Emma and her family, slowly going into the past with the help of the psychiatrist Dr. Shaw (the only kind and genuine person). The entire story is about helping Emma to remember that nightmarish night where everything was lost.
The only niggle for me was the characters could have been fleshed out a bit, especially the husband Darren.
Every cloud has a silver lining and whether Emma reaches that or wants to reach that forms the crux of the story.
A good book to read on a Sunday morning and I enjoyed it thoroughly!
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
My rating : 4 stars
