1943: The world is at war, and the villagers of Tyneham are being asked to make one more sacrifice: to give their homes over to the British army. But on the eve of their departure, a terrible act will cause three of them to disappear forever.
2018: Melissa had hoped a break on the coast of Dorset would rekindle her stagnant relationship, but despite the idyllic scenery, it’s pushing her and Liam to the brink. When Melissa discovers a strange photograph of a woman who once lived in the forgotten local village of Tyneham, she becomes determined to find out more about her story. But Tyneham hides a terrible secret, and Melissa’s search for the truth will change her life in ways she never imagined possible.
I loved this book, I grew up going for holidays to Dorset so this meant a great to me. I use to go to Worbarrow Bay and Tyneham as a child but haven’t been back for a long time, but after reading this book I am definitely going to go back soon. It was really interesting to know some of the history around it. The story has been cleverly written to bring the past and present together. Makes for a really good read.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
