Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for letting me read this great book!
In 1981, a young English girl goes off exploring Europe. She is painfully naive and accepting, making friends on her travels. Today, Kate has a grown daughter and a happy life. Events from the past cast a shadow on Kate’s life and she suddenly is forced to confront what happened to her.
Wow!!!! I just LOVED this book. I happily enjoyed the descriptions of drunken times in Greece. I was longing for a beach and a vino, after reading the first part set in France and Greece. I really felt for Emma as she was so obviously rather a complex mess. The characters were so well drawn, I could understand and empathise with all of them. This was a dream to read, well written and flowing.
Why did no one recommend Julia Crouch to me? She is such a brilliant author. I can’t wait to get my hands on her other books. A recommended read!!!!
