An amazing story that will stay with you long after you read the last words., 12 Feb 2012
This book is a beautifully woven Thriller, whose main character "Grace" is thrust into a situation which is so full of anguish that its concepts and their conclusion will stay with you long after you have read the last line.
On a beautiful summer's sports day, the joy of a peaceful existence is shattered, when the school building is found to be ablaze and Grace realises her daughter is still inside. Grace's heroic rescue starts a sequence of events that will take you to new realms of reality, as their survival leaves both Jenny and Grace in a completely helpless position.
It soon becomes clear that the fire was not an accident and the need to discover the possible arsonist intensifies as incidents begin to reveal that Jenny and her brother Adam may still be in danger.
As the story unfolds the characters bravely soldier on, using the love that binds their family, to enable them to determine the truth and make heartbreakingly difficult decisions.
Rosamund places gentle clues which will make you want to read furiously to discover their final conclusion. But equally her profound understanding of life and her ability to explain love in its most exquisite form - "Simplicity", will leave you wanting to linger on her elegant observations.
