How safe are your secrets?
One letter a week for fifteen years. 780 identical white envelopes brimming with my sister’s darkest secrets. All the intimate details of a life as different to mine as could possibly be.
I read each letter slowly to make sure I understand it perfectly, one day very soon it will be a matter of life and death…
At the end of each letter, after signing her name, there is always one final sentence:
Don’t forget to burn this letter.
I’ll let you decide if I do…
This book had me guessing at all the possible twists from early on but it’s also a mind-changer. It had me theorising as to who was doing what from start to end.
I absolutely loved the settings, the one in Ellie’s home and the setting in Scotland. I could really picture them clearly.
The author explores the theme of twin identity brilliantly. It shows the power of guilt through Ellie’s inner battles.
I also really enjoyed the chapters written from the husband’s point of view. This was a beautifully crafted psychological thriller that simmered until reaching a fantastic denouement. That’s when the pot seriously boiled over. What a brilliant ending!
Thanks so much for reading. 💟💟💟
