Publisher's Summary

My baby girl, I’ll never forget you - your smile, your laugh, the way your hair sparkles in the sun. I cannot comprehend this pain. I cannot breathe through it.

In the middle of the night, Claire wakes up to discover that her beloved daughter, Julia, is dead - and life, as she knows it, is over.

Searching for answers, Claire stumbles upon a pile of letters, hidden under Julia’s bed in an old, battered shoebox, and feels closer to her daughter than ever before. They tell her that Julia was happy, that she was thriving at university, that she was in love. 

But as the letters go on, Claire starts to feel uneasy at something hidden between the lines. Even as she grieves, she must prepare to face a shocking discovery. Because Julia was hiding a terrible secret - and when it’s uncovered, it will make Claire question everything she thought she knew about her daughter....

An emotional and gripping story that will stay with you long after you finish. Fans of Liane Moriarty, Lisa Wingate, and Jodi Picoult will love this moving and poignant tale that's full of twists.

Didn't see that coming!

Really enjoyed this one!
Although I wanted a severe punishment for the accused! This one hit some emotional buttons!

Not as good as her other books

I have really enjoyed a few of her books but this one was obvious for me even as it felt like the book was being obviously deceptive. I don’t enjoy it when I can figure out all the twists a long time before the book reveal. Maybe just me.

Longer than necessary...

Although unlike other listeners, I didn’t know EXACTLY what was going to happen from the very beginning, but, I did have a pretty good idea. I kind of just wanted it to hurry up and be done so I could see if I was right. Which, I was. It was still a good story though.

Twist??

The “twist” in this story was transparent on page 2. I kept hoping it was wrong - that there was no way the story would be that obvious — of course I was disappointed. Bleh.

Not for me

Not much to say about this one.
Very predictable, and repetitive. I got through the whole thing but it was hard.

Gripping tale of heart rending loss

Excellent narrator. Hard to put down.
Told in first person. Well written.
Look forward to more by this author.

????huh???

I listen to a dozen books a month and this was the first one that I had to keep replaying chapters. It was easy to zone out and became painful to listen to how predictable it was. I knew the plot ending in the first few chapters. The only reason I kept listening was that I was hoping I could not possibly be correct.... I was.

I wanted to shake the main character due to her naive, simplistic thinking.

Good story. Be aware domestic abuse covered.

This was my first Nicole Trope book. I enjoyed it immensely.

Please be aware that she covers domestic abuse within this book covering all it's subtleties as well as obvious aspects/
Having experienced emotional abuse myself I found her understanding and descriptions of all the different emotions experienced really well understood. I would even go as far as saying I found some scenarios she described a little unnerving as she was describing exactly what I felt and dealt with.

However it is a book that I found really enjoyable and although some have said they guess the ending it is very much a story with lots of twists and turns. I saw one plot line early on but I didn't have it completely right.

I am looking forward to finding more from Nicole Trope.
