MY REVIEW

A newspaper article pushed through the slot in the door caused Hope to investigate her origins.

Kerry Wilkinson had written a winner with this book where there was a new reveal every few pages that kept me glued to my kindle. I loved how Hope’s life turned topsy-turvy every time a new character entered her life.

Suspense made a play to grip the main character by her throat. A woman who had seen much, yet persevered with strength. Human needs, sometimes selfishness sometimes desperation showed themselves when made to face the mirror of truth.

Friendship with best mate Stephen warmed my heart. The two had gone through much together; that showed in the comfort they gave each other.

Short chapters that seemed to fly almost at jet speed, the only niggle would be I needed more suspense. But it was a good mystery all around.

Overall, a good book I would recommend as a breakfast read to evoke the curiosity about Hope’s life.

MY RATING

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

BOOK BLURB

I stare at the newspaper article about a baby snatched from the back of a car thirty years ago, and wonder why someone would post it through my door. Looking closer, my blood freezes. The little girl in the photo has an unusual scar – just like mine. I’ve never met anyone with one like it. Is this stolen child… me?

Trembling with shock, I know I have to confront my mother. My parents got me through a horrific accident, helped me find a job I love teaching art, and even with buying my own house. But was it all built on lies?

She tells me the day I was born was the best day of her life, and I’m flooded with guilt for questioning her – but why do I catch her burning papers in the garden the next day?

Then I come home to find a woman sitting on my doorstep, covered in bruises and claiming she knows who abducted me. I don’t know if I can trust her – or if I’ll be the next to get hurt.

Because all the while, I’ve been hiding my own secret. Does whoever sent the article know what really happened the day of my accident? Desperate for the truth, I break into the house of my supposed kidnapper. Inside, I find a handwritten list of names. A shiver goes down my spine as I realise wasn’t the only child to be stolen.

Then I hear a key in the lock, and I know my life is in terrible danger…
