A bit of a slog...
on 3 June 2014
I have read a fair few Susan Lewis books and enjoyed them all. In fact, I read no child of mine in a day. I just couldn't put it down. I picked this up, cheaply, a few months ago and I was intrigued.
The story focuses on Susannah, a single mother to Neve. I thought the story was going to focus on the ex husband, who is in prison but I was wrong. It focuses on an action by Neve that has devastating consequences...
The beauty of Susan Lewis' is how the story unfolds so I don't want to give too much away. What I will say is I found this a slow burner and it took a while to get into. Once the story got going, it was interesting but it just wasn't as gripping as some of her other books. This is a monster of a book at almost 700 pages and I felt it could have been cut down.
This is worth a read but if it's your first Susan Lewis, I'd try one of her others.
