This book began with a sense of anticipation for me, and even though parts of it were slow I can’t ever say that I regretted one moment spent reading it.
Everyone has a sense of history built into their sense of self, and I found it very interesting to see what happened when Olivia realized that her family history wasn’t really hers. The horror she felt at learning what her real parents might’ve done and were convicted of doing was palpable and very real. The realization that this was why the relationship between her and her mother was the way it was was heart breaking.
This book is interesting because it edges on the supernatural but never quite touches it in a way that is enticing. I would recommend it to anyone who likes mystery novels and even those who don’t.
