WHAT THEY SAY:
"A perfect life … until she discovered it wasn’t her own
A tragic family event reveals devastating news that rips apart Bella’s comfortable existence. Embarking on a personal journey to uncover the truth, she faces a series of traumatic discoveries that take her to the ruggedly beautiful Cornish coast, where hidden truths, past betrayals and a 25-year-old mystery threaten not just her identity, but also her life. Chilling, complex and profoundly moving, In Her Wake is a gripping psychological thriller that questions the nature of family – and reminds us that sometimes the most shocking crimes are committed closest to home."
WHAT I SAY:
I have been waiting for this book for what feels like ages! I can tell you, it was well worth the wait!
From page one, I was gripped by Bella and Elaine. There are a handful of truly amazing characters but Bella and Elaine were what held me captive throughout. They both faced devastating circumstances. They were both struck by the darkest despair and went to desperate measures to try and make the life they believed they should live.
Their stories are tragic, gritty, heartbreaking. Their fights just to survive in a world neither of them quite belongs in just made me want to keep reading until the very last page.
I cried, I knew I would as Amanda is such a great emotional author. I personally, can understand the sheer desperation that drove Elaine. The raw fear and sorrow that can consume you are portrayed so realistically within the pages that I was breathless and crying more than once. This book spoke to me...
I was so captivated by In Her Wake that I sat in the laundrette long after my dryer finished just so I could finish the book.
I don't know how else to tell you that you need to read this book. You just do...
