It was meant to be paradise…
Winterfall Farm, spectacular and remote, stands over Bodmin Moor. Wanting an escape from the constraints of conventional life, Kit and Tara move to the isolated smallholding with their daughter, Skye, and a group of friends. Living off-grid and working the land, they soon begin to enjoy the fruits of their labour amid the breathtaking beauty and freedom of the moor.
At first this new way of life seems too good to be true, but when their charismatic leader, Jeremy, returns from a mysterious trip to the city with Dani, a young runaway, fractures begin to appear. As winter approaches, and with it cold weather and dark nights, Jeremy’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic. Rules are imposed, the outside world is shunned, and when he brings a second girl back to the farm, tensions quickly reach breaking point with devastating consequences…
This book was my perfect pick me up, I felt as though I fell in love with the whole scenario but is something more sinister happening beneath the layers. I thought there were some intriguing characters in this story, ones I felt as though I could trust and ones that I didn’t. Kit and Tara move away from the city to a small holding with their daughter and some of their friends, they will live of the land and enjoy the fruits of their labour, but when Jeremy starts bring young girls back, Tara is concerned about Jeremey’s intentions, I felt as though the story got dark and tense and I was not sure where the rest of the story would lead, but was surprised where it did lead, it captured my attention and I didn’t want to put the book down. Such a fantastic story that will keep you on tenterhooks the whole way through.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
