Nina can never forgive Maggie for what she did. And she can never let her leave.
They say every house has its secrets, and the house that Maggie and Nina have shared for so long is no different. Except that these secrets are not buried in the past.
Every other night, Maggie and Nina have dinner together. When they are finished, Nina helps Maggie back to her room in the attic, and into the heavy chain that keeps her there. Because Maggie has done things to Nina that can’t ever be forgiven, and now she is paying the price.
But there are many things about the past that Nina doesn’t know, and Maggie is going to keep it that way―even if it kills her.
Because in this house, the truth is more dangerous than lies.
I have really enjoyed John’s books in the past and this one was good, but I did find it quite twisted and raw, I couldn’t work out who was telling the truth and who was lying. It is all about a mother and daughter who both share a house but they both have secrets they are determined to keep to themselves. It was creepy and tense and I found some parts really raw. Some parts left me shocked, I wanted to read on because I genuinely wanted to find out what was going to happen but then I didn’t want to read on as I was shocked at what I was reading. I think I found parts difficult to read because of personal circumstances. But it was a good read.
