Set against the background of relatively mundane family life in a sleepy English town, don’t let the relatively slow start fool you - I found this book more and more compelling as the tension and suspense ramped up.
S.L Russell skilfully weaves together the strands of this story exploring powerful themes of conflict, betrayal and forgiveness. The depth of the characters’ and the author’s ability to provide such an accurate insight into human nature really make this novel first class.
As a Non-Christian reader, I can confidently recommend this book to Christian and Non-Christian readers alike. It certainly isn’t “preachy” and the way in which the author explores faith through the doubts and fears of the book’s protagonist 17 year old Abbie, is realistic and relatable to anyone.
An insightful, and powerful book – I was particularly moved by the “take home” message on the last page; S.L Russell’s best work yet.
