A thought provoking, morally angsty kind of a read was this book by author Jane Corry, and at the same time it was quite compelling.

A mother’s love for her child was tested in this where 15 year old Freddie came home after committing a crime and both parents were on opposite sides. Sarah wanted to hide it, Tom was all for calling the cops.

A brilliant, but slightly slow paced, I was completely kept in the dark, befuddled, about the direction the story would take. Two POVs in dual timelines of the past and present, along with hints of scenes in the court where all 3 were present. I couldn’t stop reading the story.

A marriage could be broken by hidden truths, and the same happened here between two people who were already so different from each other. The child added to the strain between them, a crime nearly broke them.

Suspense built up slowly and steadily, intricate was the weave of the scenes, the author’s writing made it captivating, leaving me with a sigh at the end.

Sarah always thought of herself and her husband, Tom, as good people. But that was before their son Freddy came home saying he’d done something terrible. Begging them not to tell the police.

Soon Sarah and Tom must find out just how far they are willing to push themselves, and their marriage, to protect their only child . . .

As the lies build up and Sarah is presented with the perfect opportunity to get Freddy off the hook, she is faced with a terrifying decision . . .

Save her son . . . or save herself?

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
