An Unputdownable Riveting Read!
I have enjoyed several of this author’s novels, and I really think this is her best yet!
Beth and her family have moved from London to a new home outwith the city limits. Settling in the new neighbourhood is very different with detached houses, high hedges, fences and intercom access. With her husband happy in his new job and the children settling in their new schools, Beth is desperate to make friends of her own. Her beautiful neighbour, Oksana, would be the obvious beginning but the Russian is not exactly welcoming. Creeping into the next door garden one day to bring back her wayward puppy, Beth sees something which unsettles her – a pale-faced girl at the window with a sign pleading for help. What kind of a neighbourhood is this that they have moved to?
This starts off as a tale of two women and develops from there, having grabbed the reader’s attention. I can’t imagine it was an easy story to write and the author handles it perfectly, turning what must have been carefully researched information into an amazing, riveting read which is unputdownable. There are several characters of note in this one and Susanna Beard has developed each one into a really believable person you would expect to meet in any walk of life. Skilfully crafted and beautifully written, this is a story which will stay with me. Highly recommended and easily commanding a full house of stars.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
