Your mother. The one person you trust. What if you’re wrong?
Widowed Nan is on her way to her beloved son’s wedding. She should be excited, but she is dreading her return to Paradise Place – a small area of Notting Hill that she hasn’t dared set foot on for decades. Nan had arrived there as a young girl in the late seventies, desperate for freedom and a career as an artist. But, drawn into a dark obsession that spun out of control, Nan was forced to flee.
And while the only thing seemingly connecting her son’s wedding and her old secret life is Paradise Place, Nan quickly gets the impression that someone is watching her every move . . . someone she thought was dead.
Kate is a new author to me, so wasn’t sure what to expect. The story is a bit of a slow burner and for me the name Nan just confused me as I kept on thinking she was talking about her Nan not herself but that is just my thoughts. The story explores Nan’s life as a mother who is struggling with her past and lots of secrets are unravelled. Once you get into it, it is a good story and well thought out and written. I would be intrigued to read Kate’s previous books.
