Thank you to Netgalley for giving me the chance to read and review this book. I don’t really know where to start as this is a full book of characters and events. Most of which is told through Connie’s POV and you do wonder what on earth happened for her to end up locked up. You have to keep reading as things are uncovered slowly so the bits do not all fit until near the end. Emma the psychologist keeps digging and removing layers while also bringing her life and events into the mixture as well.
Brutal writing with mental health and families all mixed in together, I did like this but think I just kept reading because I really wanted to know exactly what happened to make Connie end up in hospital with no memory of what happened at all. Unpicking the layers takes a while but you do get all the answers eventually.
This book will be either a 5 star or 1 star as it is only going to appeal to some people but if you read it then I would encourage you to read until the end and not give up.
