A really strong debut

4.5*
It’s a very strong debut.
🎧 version, the narrator Charlotte Richie is good, adding well to the tension and angst.
Naomi always wanted to be a mother, but 3 years ago her husband left taking their daughter Freya with him. Now her daughter has come to stay her one chance to rebuild her family but that night there’s a terrible accident followed by a lie that she can not take back.
It’s told from Naomi’s perspective, with time frames from when she is first pregnant to current. From being happily married to being divorced and struggling.
We are led by the revelation of secrets and lies told by an unreliable and mentally unstable narrator. I usually struggle with unreliable narrators as I get irritated by the lies and ‘convenient’ lack of memory. I loved it, the pace kept my interest although the middle section lagged a bit. There were revelations and twists galore. It was a book that kept giving.
