D this story’ Steph and Chris Book Reviews ‘This book had me on an emotional rollercoaster from the first words a story that will stay with you long after you have finished the book’ Ask a Bookworm ‘This was such a moving story convincingly told It is almost as though you are reading a memoir rather than a novel a really compelling read and would definitely recommend it’ Portobello Book Blog ‘Full of deep raw emotion and had me hooked until the end' That Thing She Reads ‘warmed my heart to the very core and then tore it out and stomped all over it   an unforgettable tale that I couldn't recommend ' GirlsLovetoReadcom  ‘I fell in love with this amazing book after the first sentence and would read it all over again A wonderful mixture of emotions real love secrets laughter and sadness’  Sky’s Book Corner  ‘It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that made me ‘ugly cry. Full review on wwwnovelgossipcomRarely am I shocked by a twist in a non thrillermystery novel as I tend to find them mostly predictable likely due to the fact that I read so many books with amazing plot twists Generally enough hints are dropped that I can uickly figure things out without much effort The cover calls the twist breathtaking and there is no fitting description to be found I had already snagged this one from Netgalley when I read Payton’s compelling review but man did she make me want to read this even She assured me that I would love it and boy was she ever right So thanks Payton for the fantastic recommendationThis is told from two perspectives that of Olivia a young mother who recently lost her husband David and David’s mother Ivy There are references made to The Tragedy which obviously refers to David’s death but the details aren’t revealed until the very end Olivia’s story is mostly told from the present though she reflects back on her marriage often especially when she’s meeting with her grief counselor Ivy’s story is told starting when David is born and leads all the way up until his death It’s clear early on that David and Olivia’s marriage is full of dark secrets and that Ivy’s relationship with her son isodd to say the leastOlivia is a broken woman trying to pick up the pieces of her life after David’s death She’s struggling to survive and the only thing that’s keeping her going is her baby daughter Zoe This may be a minor spoiler but I don’t think it is as it’s revealed straight away but David abused poor Olivia Not only was he physically abusive he was so manipulative it chilled my blood It was so subtle that even I had to think about it at times and say did he really just saydo that I hated Ivy HATED her She has an unhealthy obsession with her son and refuses to believe that he could ever do any wrong Like ever Even as a young boy she convinced herself that everything was always someone else’s fault besides David’s and that he was literally perfect She brings delusional to a whole new level and her lack of awareness made me sick Even when she had small moments of doubt regarding David’s abhorrent behavior she was uick to brush it off and blame it on someone elseThe character development especially with Olivia was phenomenal here She starts off as a wounded and broken woman but soon begins to take back her life and make a plan to at least try and be happy I loved watching her have small victories and was mentally rooting her on the entire way As I mentioned earlier the twist was unexpected and shocking but it also shattered my heart into a million pieces and made me cry like a baby I experienced such a wide range of emotions while reading this one I was angry empathetic sad disgusted and at times even happy This was clearly an emotional read and one that will stay with me for awhile
