One of her earlier novels and one of her best
on 20 March 2008
I read this many years ago the first time, and have read it many many times since. It is one of her best books. It's about a woman who was accused of murdering her two young children a few years ago who has now made a new life for herself and has a new husband and two more small children, one morning a newspaper exposes her true identity, and at the same time that she opens the paper and sees the story, her children who were playing in the garden, disappear. Of course suspicion falls on her, and the story centres on the battle to find the children and prove her innocence, and discover the truth about what really happened to her other kids.
