About The Book
Grace has returned to London after twenty years abroad to manage her dying mother’s affairs. When she receives a blank Mother’s Day card in the post, she is confused and unsettled. Who could have sent it to her and why? She isn’t a mother.
Another Mother’s Day card arrives. Then come the silent phone calls. Haunted by disturbing flashbacks, Grace starts to unravel. Someone is out to get her. Someone who knows what she has done. Someone who will make her face the past she has run from for so long
This had been quite a read; a captivating story full of twists and secrets that will keep you addicted till the last page.
It is not difficult to understand the feelings that Grace has towards her mother, guilt and love at the same time; but what we don’t know is why she is receiving some scary phone calls… It seems that Grace has some deep secrets that are ready to go out.
In this story we will deal with motherhood, mental illness and secrets, some of them not always easy to describe or to read, but in this case it makes the book more real and connect the reader to the story.
The story is told with flashbacks between past and present, and in the beginning makes the reader a little bit difficult to understand whose point of view you are reading, but once you enter to the story it gets easier.
I have to say I enjoyed this book, is really well written and gets the reader interested with a lot of twists and dramatic situations, but as I am sure you know motherhood is not easy, relations between mothers-daughters are always full of difficult situations and secrets, so don’t be surprised when you discover a few secrets while you read this book!
