Three little girls. One good. One bad. One dead.
Three little girls set off to school one sunny May morning.
Within an hour, one of them is dead.
Fifteen years later, Alison and Kitty are living separate lives. Kitty lives in a care home. She can’t speak, and she has no memory of the accident that put her here, or her life before it.
Art teacher Alison looks fine on the surface. But the surface is a lie. When a job in a prison comes up she decides to take it – this is her chance to finally make things right.
But someone is watching Kitty and Alison.
Someone who wants revenge for what happened that day.
And only another life will do…
This is the second book I’ve read by Jane Corry.
I liked the first one, My Husband’s Wife, and I enjoyed this one just as much.
The story is told between two timelines, 2001 and 2016 which can be confusing sometimes but it worked really well in this case.
Fantastic characters, including Kitty and Alison, two sisters with very different personalities; Fascinating plot with unpredictable twists. Very engrossing story!
I am looking forward to Jane Corry’s next release.
Thanks NetGalley and Penguin UK – Michael Joseph for the opportunity to read and review this fantastic novel.
