I was lucky enough to be given this book to read by NetGalley. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share it with you. In some ways, it’s a psychological tale but more than that it’s one girl’s way of coming out of the despair into which she has landed. So
A young girl recovering from an horrific episode is trying to rebuild her life. Her best friend is killed and she is badly injured by a man they considered a friend. She relives that night in vivid flashbacks and horrendous nightmares. She isolates herself from friends and family in the country and here she meets and befriends an elderly neighbour and his dog. We move with her through meetings with the therapist, strained meetings with the family of her murdered friend, her mother and even the murderer.
This is a tautly written book that gripped me right through to the finish. I would certainly recommend it with the proviso that it’s not an easy read.
