Single mum Jess has had her world turned upside down. Now it’s about to be turned inside out.
Jess has got a tough life back on track after love-of-her-life husband Simon walked out on her and their beautiful young daughters Katy and Abi. But she has long-time friend and confidante Polly to turn to…until Polly and Simon start having an affair together.
When Polly decides to apply for a job at Jess’s school, in the English department, Jess feels threatened. So why has Polly set her sights on the department head’s role? And why is the school now offering Jess a sideways ‘promotion’?
Jess can no longer trust anyone – including herself. Then out of the blue she is mysteriously sent a clipping for a temporary post in the Ministry of Education in Ghana, where she did a gap year as a teenager, and where she was happy. She is on the brink of losing everything at home but could this be a lifeline?
After reading the first two books I was excited to read this one which is the last book in the drumbeats trilogy, whilst I was sad to finish the trilogy I still couldn’t wait to get stuck in and catch up with Jess. I think the personal issues are dealt with sensitively and I found it quite sad what Jess has to go through. A powerful story.
I received a ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
