  • WOW! This is a book that lives up to its promises!

    WOW! What a ride this was! Kept me gripped and reading late into the night to find out what happened to these characters. Everything I love in a good read. Highly recommended.

  • Loved it!😍

    Great story based on true events!🤗 Loved the story that evolved in 1965 around a neglected young girl's disappearance and some very off, unsympathetic adults in the north of England. Then there's the good guys like farmer Ronald and his super domestic brother Thomas who get drawn into a criminal's sphere just by freak accident. Lots of suspense and the girl's mother is herself a lost soul, but one I could not find sympathy for. Though the plot and execution were really top-notch, and I particularly liked the thread that linked the girl's family to Ronald's, I feel the title is a bit of a spoiler that dampens some of the suspense. Still, Myra and Ian's strange antics and Ronald's constant fear of discovery kept the tension going. I found the end satisfying though a bit unrealistic in how missing child Kathy's mom reacts to things, though it is a continuation three years after the bulk of the action. I believe that this is my first time reading anything by Rebecca Griffiths and I was impressed. I would definitely read more of her work. In fact, after finishing The Hidden Child I went out and purchased her The Girl at My Door. I don't want to be done with this author! Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for sharing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest opinion.

  • Compelling & Emotive

    It's 1965 and in Manchester, England, Connie's daughter, disappears from outside a pub and the lives of a number of families are impacted. The Hidden Child is inspired by the true story of the Moors Murders and though it is rather grim reading in parts, it's also exceptionally compelling. The author's vivid writing brilliantly depicts 1960s Manchester and the characterisation of Connie especially is tremendous. A great melding of fiction and fact. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • A child is missing.A secret is waiting to be found

    Well researched and compelling tale - I couldn't turn the pages quick enough. This book has been getting great reviews and I can see why. Griffiths' writing is engaging and paints a vivid picture that transports you into the places and story leaving you feeling like a fly on the wall. The characters are brought to life and the sensitive themes are handled well. Cannot recommend this book enough.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Intriguing, all consuming

    I was intrigued when I read the blurb, and as I dove into this story, with every turn of the page, the intrigue continued to grow. I was completely enthralled with each character and their individual stories. I couldn’t wait to find out how they all connected. I liked the fact that this included characters of every nature. Some I connected with and my heart ached for them to find a measure of happiness, others were flat out evil even before the author shined a light on their actions, and then there were those that I found myself judging, wondering, and switching from one opinion to another as the story progressed. It all added to the overall feel and texture of this story. There were several times I found myself heartbroken, near tears, and anxious and then with only a turn of the page I’d find myself ranting and raving. To say this pulled me into the story and kept me engaged doesn’t give the full effect this story had on me. While it isn’t necessary to have any knowledge of the Moor murders this story is written around, this author pulls at that mystery enough to make you want more of it after you turn the last page.

    Thanks for your feedback!
