They say those we love never truly leave us, and I’ve found that to be true. But not in the way you might expect. In fact, none of this is what you’d expect.
I’ve been visiting my mother who died when I was eight.
And I’m talking about flesh and blood, tea-and-biscuits-on-the-table visiting here.
Right now, you probably think I’m going mad.
Let me explain…
Although Faye is happy with her life, the loss of her mother as a child weighs on her mind even more now that she is a mother herself. So she is amazed when, in an extraordinary turn of events, she finds herself back in her childhood home in the 1970s. Faced with the chance to finally seek answers to her questions – but away from her own family – how much is she willing to give up for another moment with her mother?
I didn’t think I was going to enjoy this book as much as I did. It is a bit like the time traveller’s wife which I didn’t like, But this book has exceeded all my expectations and is a really good read. It is all about Faye, who has lost so much as a child, while longing for her childhood and her mother comes about, she jumps at the chance to revisit her past, I won’t say how but it is quite magical. What will she find out when she travels back in time, will there be lies, secrets or betrayals that she didn’t know about? It is a very unique storyline but one that works really well. The story really showed me that the past can really shape what happens in the future. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
