  • A 5* cracking read

    Oh, my! What an amazing read. This storyline captured my heart and throughout the rollercoaster story kept my interest to the very last page. If you enjoy psychological thrillers, this is for you. It’s much more though. Oh gosh! Where to start? And without giving anything away? ..... Leah, Marie and Carly are three adult sisters who shared a horrifying childhood experience. The book takes you into each life and how the experience has moulded them as adults. It’s coming up to the 20th anniversary and this brings many things to a head as each sister tries to work their way through their heartbreaking history. It’s got fantastic characters, it’s incredibly well written and has great twists and turns. The chapters are short and told in the ‘now’ and ‘then’ and it flows so well. I cried, gasped and laughed, was shocked, relieved and frightened. The descriptions of the emotional trauma these sisters went through is so incredibly well written, I was living it with them. Many congratulations Louise Jensen. A cracking read.

  • Well-Planned & Addictive!

    A stunning read - touching on things I've never really considered before! The Sinclair Sisters were lifted off the street twenty years ago, but they're still dealing with the trauma. Leah is married with a child; a perfect marriage from the outside look in but plenty different from the inside looking out. Marie has issues with alcohol, overindulging to help her forget and Carly just can't forgive herself for not protecting her two younger siblings better. They need to move on, but how can they when not everyone is being honest? Wow. This is a very different psychological thriller. I love that, from the very beginning, we know that the girls survived their ordeal - at least physically. I don't tend to read missing children books as I find them just too difficult to digest, but this one is both well-planned and addictive. I can't begin to imagine the intricacies of the author's mind to write a novel such as this, keeping the readers hooked from first to last. It has great characters and a gripping story line but I did lose focus once or twice once or twice as it wasn't moving quickly enough for me. Still a novel I would recommend though, and I'm happy to give it 4.5*.

  • Page turner

    This was gripping from the start with the unbelievable kidnapping right outside the girls house to the introduction to how they live their lives today. The details of them being held hostage told through the eyes of thirteen year old Carly showed the bewilderment, bravery and obvious terror very well but it’s the effect it still has on them that is best depicted. The reason behind the kidnapping is spine chilling and the fear of the perpetrator is genuinely terrifying especially to Leah with her mental health issues. This is a cracking page turner which I flew through in a day.

  • Brilliant Read

    Three terrified children abducted from a garden I can’t think of anything more frightening and every anniversary they have to re live the experience which has dire consequences which you won’t be able to stop reading until you find out what really happened and you’re in for a shock at the ending definitely recommend it and thanks to publisher and Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to read it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Thought-provoking and emotional

    This is a thought-provoking and emotional story of 3 sisters who were abducted 20 years ago and how that traumatic event has impacted on them as they have grown into adults. I haven't read anything by Louise Jensen before and although I am unable to absolutely rave about this book, I will say that it's a well-crafted story that will appeal to many, many readers. Why am I not raving about this? To be honest, it's hard to explain exactly why and I don't really understand it myself! It started off brilliantly and I was definitely hooked but it just seemed to take too long to get anywhere and although there were surprises, they just didn't hit the spot for me and I didn't get that feeling of excitement and anticipation unfortunately. I don't think this is a fault of the author rather than of me as a reader who is used to reading rollercoaster-of-a-ride books which I don't think this is; I feel it's more of a family drama type story with mystery and tension thrown in. The story is told in the then and now and from a variety of viewpoints; this isn't as confusing as it sounds and I actually found this worked well for the most part however, I felt that the "then" parts worked better for me and were more engrossing than the "now". The characters are an interesting bunch, not all of them particularly likeable but all the main ones are well fleshed out. What I thought shone throughout was the strong relationship between the sisters and the way their horrific experience impacted on their lives and their mental health; this was expertly done with sensitivity and I have no shame in admitting that there were parts that made me a bit emotional - I am the youngest of 3 sisters and I did wonder how we would have turned out if this had happened to us but I quickly stopped that because it is too horrific to contemplate. Like I said at the beginning, I am unable to say this has been one of my best reads of 2020 but I will certainly read more by this author in the future. Thank you to HQ (an imprint of HarperCollins UK) via NetGalley for my copy in return for an honest, unbiased and unedited review.
