  • Someone Help

    This book is emotion filled. Alice was happy with her mother and father, but when she was six her father died. Her mother could not cope with the loss, she could not cope with life. After she married Alice’s stepfather than things got worse. The beatings started, and her mother became enslaved to alcohol. The her little sister was born and she loved her. Her stepfather became meaner and then he did unspeakable things to Alice. One day Alice took her sister out to the highway and hid while a car stopped and a lady in a shiny red car picked her up. Her sister was two years old. Alice watched television that night and saw a wreck in a shiny red car and thought her sister was dead in the wreck. Her stepfather beat her mother and her but she never told what happened to her sister. The story told in the book is about Alice, her relationship with her mother, her marriage and children. She tells her husband about being abused, but say nothing about her sister except that she died in a car wreck. The story is separately about the sister now called Molly that was adopted but the foster family that took her in when she was found. She did not know she was adopted until she was married and read a blog on the computer that Alice wrote. The story is about the mother Margaret. How she couldn’t cope. Her struggle with alcohol. Her grief at the loss of her husband Adam and her abusive relationship with Vernon, It is mostly about feelings, about pain and hurt, about love and hate. It is about marriage, trust, heartbreak and hope. It will make you cry and fill you with hope. This book covers the topic of child abuse and does it in a sensitive way dealing more with feelings than actual detail. It was an interesting read about a subject which needs to be addressed in society. Thanks to Nicole Trope, Bookouture, and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of the book.

  • Simply Brilliant!

    The Nowhere Girl is an absolute masterpiece! Gripping and thrilling, it is in a class of its own. Though quite difficult to read because of some of the content, it is still an extremely compelling story. Containing themes of domestic violence, child abuse, addiction and neglect, Nicole Trope's characterisation continues to impress and the trauma suffered felt very real, especially regarding Alice, the sister who never stopped reliving her childhood experiences. The Nowhere Girl is also a story about strength, courage, and survival. The story moves comprehensibly between dual timelines, from the 1980's to the present day, to recount the stories of three women, Alice, Margaret and Molly and how tragic events that occurred thirty years ago permanently changed their lives. I found The Nowhere Girl to be very well researched and it came across as believable. Nicole Trope is a master of this type of domestic thriller and I loved the way the author slowly meted out the clues and built up the suspense until the plot reached the dramatic denouement. There was such a lot happening that I found this deftly told, stark and poignant novel really difficult to put down. I’d certainly read more from this talented author. Highly recommended and well worth five stars. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from Bookouture via NetGalley and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • My heart kept breaking.

    When I read I go to another place, I feel I’m part of the story as an outsider looking in, in this case i wanted to close my eyes, pray for someone to please please help. The pain and suffering that happens in this world never seems to end, why are adults so destroying and evil. I could not put this book down, tears very close at lot of the time. The ending was very befitting and again the sun came out.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Punch In The Gut Family Drama

    Gut wrenching and heartbreaking family drama. This was not an easy read due to the subject matter but it was done well and credibly. There are three perspectives as well as current and past chapters. Once you nail everyone down the story really takes off.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heartbreaking and emotional

    This was a very emotional tale of a dysfunctional family a missing sister and the horrors of family life that some women and children have to endure. It covers everything from emotional abuse, child abuse both psychological and sexual, domestic violence and rape, alcohol abuse, miscarriage and murder but there are good components too - unconditional love and all that comes with being part of a loving supportive family. Overall I found Alice's story to be terribly sad, I could feel how wretched her life was, the fear and the hopelessness she felt, I cried for her, knowing that there are children actually living her life so, so sad. Each character was very well described and developed. A book is so enjoyable when you can almost see it in your minds eye.... And this is exactly what the author did, she brought all the characters to life. This was an emotional journey i wanted to shake Margaret and make her choose her children first! I am still left thinking about Alice the child, this book will stay with me for a long time. Well written, emotional and a very good read. Thank you Netgalley, Bookouture and Nicole Trope for giving me the chance to read an advance copy of this book.
