Emotional and spell binding.

This was an emotional read, the characters in this book were well developed and you could really feel the emotion of all the characters. Alison was clearly struggling with the loss of her daughter and her and her husband were falling apart. losing a child has to be one of the most devastating things you can go through as a parent specially a child so young and to such a freak accident.

The book specially the first part was really emotional and you could really feel the struggles and personalities of the characters come out Oliver Alisons step sun was one of my favourite characters he was mature and shown good empathy and understanding. The ending of the book was very fitting. I read the first novel the boy at the door by this author and it was good to get something completely different with this one, however it did not affect the quality of the writing or the story. Both subjects have been handled fantastically well by the author and I can't wait to read her next novel playdate. She's an author I'll be adding to my fans list in regards to looking out for new material. it's also great learning more about Norway.
