The past is never history. For fans of Liane Moriarty.
Eve Hardy is exactly where she wants to be in life. She is a successful concert cellist for the Royal Opera, living with her handsome partner in his London apartment. Everything is possible.
Sarah lives in Sydney with her husband and two young children. She thrives on being the centre of their world. When the sudden death of their old school friend Meg brings them back together for her funeral in country New South Wales, it is time to face the past and the secret they all shared. A secret that began at boarding school with that girl, Rebecca Thornton - beautiful, wanted, gifted at maths, English and spotting losers who didn't know they were losers yet.
A schoolgirl secret that changed the women they became. Sometimes, you can bury your past. Sometimes, the past tries to bury you.
Under the influence
I loved this book. I could relate to all of the girls in the book except for Rebecca. The story shows how nobody is blameless- even a victim of bullying may be guilty of hurting others, even if only through exclusion. I wished the book would never end. Highly recommended.
