Sadie loves her daughter and will do anything to keep her safe.
She can’t tell her why they had to leave home so quickly – or why Robin’s father won’t be coming with them to London.
She can’t tell her why she hates being back in her dead mother’s house, with its ivy-covered walls and its poisonous memories.
And she can’t tell her the truth about the school Robin’s set to start at – a school that doesn’t welcome newcomers.
Sadie just wants to get their lives back on track.
But even lies with the best intentions can have deadly consequences…
About the author
Harriet Tyce was born and grew up in Edinburgh. She graduated from the University of Oxford in 1994 with a degree in English Literature before gaining legal qualifications. She worked as a criminal barrister for ten years, leaving after the birth of her first child. She completed an MA in Creative Writing – Crime Fiction at UEA where she wrote Blood Orange, which is her first novel.
I can’t believe how drawn into Sadie’s new life I became. The fact that she’d come such a long way from her old home, and that something big had happened made me sit up to attention. As I whizzed through the pages, I found myself becoming more agitated by the horrible school gate parents. But soon, the plot thickened. I couldn’t put this book down.
I loved reading the chapters between Robin and Sadie and I felt every painful moment of Sadie trying to balance work with looking after her daughter. So many parents will relate.
This was a speedy psychological thriller that provided me with hours of entertainment. Loved it!
Thanks for reading!
