This is a story full of layers and complex; in the centre we will have Bede and Elin, then a secret diary hidden that will reveal some family secrets… But what could it be hidden in that diary connected to the reality they are living in the present?
The story is full of tension and suspense, expect a human story mixed with some real problems that will make you feel more involved in the story and eager to know more about the characters and their story.
This is the first book I’ve read of the author Alison Layland, but after reading Riverflow, I can assure you it will not be the only one! This is a story that is full of plots that even if they seem disconnect they all have their own part on this book, making it an exceptional read!
