Nice read, not the ending I wanted!
on 11 May 2015
Liked the main character, thought it was a good build up, but was expecting a little more. Isobel is initially credited as being able to almost see into the future of the children she photographs and it was a shame the book didn't pursue this quality as it would then have been more in keeping with the title and given more interest to the story. Also it suggested that April may have had a hand in causing/encouraging Sam's asthma, but again this line wasn't pursued - lots of red herring! The characters became weaker as the book continued which led to a rather disappointing finale
