‘Fiendishly plotted… this is Gregory at her most convincing. Sunday lunch with the in-laws will never be the same again’
‘Insidiously gripping’ Independent
‘Brilliant psychological chiller… utterly, nail-nibblingly plausible. You will relish its explosive climax and be gripped through to its final superb double-twist finish’ Daily Mail--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
It was easy for Elizabeth. She married the man she loved, bore him two children and made a home for him which was the envy of their friends.
It was harder for Ruth. She married Elizabeth’s son and then found out that, somehow, she could never quite measure up.
Isolation, deceit and betrayal fill the gaps between the two individual women and between their two worlds. In this complex psychological thriller, the disturbing depths of what women want and what women fear become all too apparent as Ruth confronts the shifting borders of her own sanity. Laying bare the truth behind the comfortable conventions of rural England, this spine-tingling novel pulses with suspense until the whiplash of the denouement.
‘This is Gregory at her most chillingly convincing.

Considering the author (who is someone that is well read and loved in my house!) this book was so disappointing, there was no real story to it, no substance. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Marvel_Mania
