Publisher's Summary

From the global best-selling author of The Girl in The Letter comes a gripping and heartbreaking novel of family secrets.

Some secrets are locked away for years....

Rebecca Waterhouse is just 13 when she witnesses her mother's death at the hand of her father in Seaview Cottage. But what else did she see?

Years later, Rebecca's daughters Iris and Jessie know their mother will never speak of that terrible night. But when Jessie goes missing, with her gravely ill newborn, Iris realises the past may hold the key to her sister's disappearance.

With Jessie in trouble, Iris must unravel a twisting story of love and betrayal in her mother's family history.

Only then will Seaview Cottage give up its dark and tragic secret...

Previously published as The Lost Child.

A Great Book!

I really enjoyed this book, though at times I found it a bit confusing, switching back & forth between eras!
what happened to the books of old where you started at the beginning & read the story through to the end. That was much more enjoyable!
Overall, it was a great story, well read by the narrator.

A real thriller

It is unfortunate that part of this book has snippets of my own story so it was a bit emotionally in parts for me.

I felt the writer clearly describes the journey of the characters, incorporating their emotions and circumstances; real and compassionate, and enjoyed the story from beginning to end
