Publisher's Summary

When Alma Johansson learns she’s dying, she takes the news surprisingly well - much better than her two grown daughters, Louisa and Michelle. And when Alma starts hinting at a long-kept secret, they are even more caught off guard. Their mother's life was an open book, so what could she possibly have kept from them?

After Alma’s will is read revealing the secret, her last words take on new meaning. They also bring back decades-old memories of a terrible fire on Indigo Hill - a fiery explosion that killed five of their friends. For Louisa, the eldest daughter, those scars are still with her. 

Now, with their mother's past out in the open, Louisa and Michelle must confront their own secrets in the present to have any chance at a meaningful future.

Indigo Hill is a darkly funny, bittersweet novel about guilt, love, family, and memory.

Loose ends get tied up in knots

Not a favorite. Story is good but not the ending. We’re left with too many questions and story is not cohesive enough to feel satisfied. Wouldn’t recommend.

Alma's family

Loved the narrator and portrayal of the British accent. The story ended too soon although I can imagine what might have happened to each character.

There was no point to this book!

None of the characters were developed. There was no closure to any of the story or character’s stories. It had an abrupt ending. This book was a painful waste of time and unfulfilling!

Great story until conclusion!!

I absolutely loved the story until the end. It was confusing, out context and the beautiful ending I expected was just cut off. Left me frustrated and angry!

huh???

Felt like they forgot to write the book completely. There was no conflict, nothing happened during the book, and then it just...ended. I am absolutely confused as to why someone would even publish this book.

Spellbinding, could not put it down.

This is the first book I heard from Liz Rosenerg. I like how she weaves the story around the characters and wraps up the story details in the end. Listening to Tavia Gilbert read this kept me so intrigued I could "see" the characters without realizing her voice changed for each person. Really got lost in the story! I smiled and cried and was sad when the book ended, wanting more.
