Publisher's Summary

The international best seller

“A captivating mystery: beautifully written, with a rich sense of place, a cast of memorable characters, and lots of deep, dark secrets.” (Kate Morton, New York Times best-selling author of The Clockmaker's Daughter)

“Extraordinary.... Absolutely her best yet.” (Lisa Jewell, New York Times best-selling author of The Family Upstairs)

Three generations. Three daughters. One house of secrets.

The truth can shatter everything....

When the Harrington family discovers an abandoned baby deep in the woods, they decide to keep her a secret and raise her as their own.

But within days a body is found in the grounds of their house and their perfect new family implodes.

Years later, Sylvie, seeking answers to nagging questions about her life, is drawn into the wild beautiful woods where nothing is quite what it seems.

Will she unearth the truth?

And dare she reveal it?

I found it really hard to follow - great narration but I think it could have benefitted from two narrators

I have listened to all of Eve Chase’s books and love them, but I just found this so confusing. I was confused by the characters and I know the narrator announced “Now” for the present day, I think “1971” would have been good for that story line. Some parts made sense at some points of the book (a little bit like Chapter 38 - where a cupboard door is opened and everything comes tumbling out) and it fell into place at the end, but, honestly, most of it I just found myself drifting off and listening to the narrator. I don’t know whether to listen to it again.

I’m disappointed mainly because the previous books were fantastic and the author was faultless. Maybe I will listen again, but I recommend people read the plot before listening so they can process the story a bit better. I am sorry for the negative review.

Boring story, monotone narration

I gave it 18 chapters and was not intrigued enough to hang in there. Perhaps the narration was to blame. It was monotone with very little inflection and difficult to distinguish between the characters speaking and the narration.

Coincidence and Connections

What a story! How does a writer come up with ideas like this long tale? I am impressed by the imagination.
The beginning took time to develop and I almost wanted to stop listening, but then . . .
I couldn’t stop listening.
Excellent narration too.

Interesting story with twists and turns

In the beginning, it was a little hard to follow with all the different characters involved.

But as time went on , I began to understand each of the characters and started to really enjoy this book. It dealt with many contemporary issues and how they were resolved.

I look forward to listening to more books by this author.

Sweetly predictable

Sweet story but very predictable. Nothing new here. The performance was fine but had several cringeworthy mispronunciations. Good book for anyone looking for a nice, simple story that’s easy to follow.

A bit difficult to follow

The narrator should have stated the title with each chapter (which named the girl and time), because if you didn’t look, it was hard to tell who was talking. There were so many female characters, that sometimes I had to check the chapter name. If I had read it on paper, it would have been clearer. Still, I think it was a bit cumbersome and perhaps too many narrative voices. It was a good story, but just harder to follow than I’d like and I didn’t love it as much as other books I’ve read or listened to recently.

Great story

A beautiful and skillfully woven story, full of both lovely and despicable characters. Very enjoyable listen
