A terrifying lie. A horrifying truth. The chilling new psychological thriller by S. K. Tremayne, author of the Sunday Times number one best seller The Ice Twins. Sometimes you can’t even trust yourself.... It was just a patch of ice. Just a bit of bad luck. But it was nearly enough to kill Kath Redway, spinning her car into Burrator Reservoir in the beautiful Dartmoor National Park.

Written in a very creative and dreamy way, and the one of the main characters had Aspergers and this was handled beautifully with a lot of insight. Gifted writer but a little too descriptive for me.
I felt that the story was a little lost among the sing song poetic way it was written with repetitive words and overly dramatic prose.

When their father tragically kills their mother, Dulcie and her sister are sent to an orphanage. Told that a 'better life' awaits them in another country, they are shipped off to Australia. But the promises made to the sisters turn out to be lies. And it seems to Dulcie that everyone who ever said 'trust me' somehow betrayed that trust. So when she meets Ross, another orphanage survivor, and finds he is a kindred spirit, hope swells in her heart. But can she ever get over the past betrayals and learn to trust again? And can she fight not only for herself but also for her sister?

Loved this book.
We’ve all heard about the atrocities in orphanages but this book helped me understand how damaged these children became as a result of their treatment. It hindered their ability to live a normal life, provide love and emotions to others and as a result affected and hurt so many others around them.
Thanks for opening my eyes to this horrible time and giving me a better understanding of the victims and yet enveloping me in a heartwarming story.
