I will not think about it anymore. I won’t think about her. My lost little sister with her beautiful smile, her chestnut-coloured eyes. My sister who I couldn’t protect.
If you passed Alice on the street, you couldn’t help but smile. At how she holds hands with her husband, Jack, who she has been with since she was at university. At the way she admires her three boys, the centre of her universe.
But if you looked very closely, you’d see how tightly she holds Jack’s hand, afraid to let go. You’d see how carefully she watches her boys, scared to look away. You’d see her smile fading in a matter of seconds, and the pain she hides behind her eyes.
She has told Jack that she ran away from home when she was younger – but she didn’t tell him the whole story. Her husband doesn’t know about the guilt she bears about her little sister she failed to save.
Now, after a lifetime of fresh starts, Alice can feel her past playing catch-up. She is sure she is being watched, certain she is being followed. She may not be able to stop her secret coming out – but can she stop the world she has lovingly built collapsing in on her?
This utterly heartbreaking, beautifully written and gripping family drama examines just how far we are willing to go for our loved ones, and the desperate decisions we make when we have no other choice. Fans of Jodi Picoult, Kerry Fisher and Liane Moriarty will be blown away by this incredibly moving tale.

Extremely Well Written
This book reaches your heart and doesn’t let go. Alice’s love for her baby sister is the strongest love she has ever known. And it leads to her deepest tragedy.
Margaret never reached her full potential... at anything. She forgets her children and never protects them.
And Molly has suffered so much in her lifetime. She just wants a baby.
Is motherhood inherently passed down from mothers or does it begin between the mother and baby?
The characters in this story are so real, I want to go save them. The story moves along well, and is well written! This is the first I have read by this author, and I would love to read more.
A very gut wrenching page turner 💕
Some of it was very hard to read as it brought back awful memories for me. Also as a mother to a daughter, I couldn’t imagine what I do if any of this happened to her. As if I didn’t think I could love her more... I do after reading this. I hope my daughter still sees me as Molly saw her after finding out the truth.
