THEN

Ellie Mack was many things. She was fifteen. She was the youngest of three. She was her mother's golden girl. She was heading towards a perfect post-exams summer holiday, with her whole life ahead of her. And then, she was gone.

NOW

Laurel Mack is living in the past. It's been ten years since Ellie disappeared, and Laurel's never given up hope of finding her daughter. But now, she no longer has a choice in the matter. It's time to let go.

And then one day, as she is slowly piecing her life back together, Laurel meets Floyd in a local cafe. An unexpectedly charming mathematician, he sweeps Laurel off her feet. Before she knows it she's meeting his daughters, and his youngest Poppy takes Laurel's breath away.

Because Poppy is so like Ellie was at that age. And now, all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back. What happened to Ellie? Where did she go? Who still has secrets to hide?

Reviews


She has departed from her usual chick lit and gone full tilt into a psycho thriller, but she’s lost none of her brilliance. Indeed, I think this is my favourite of hers so far… Deeply emotional and incredibly clever. Bravo.
