Wow!!  I'm utterly speechless.  This book cast a spell on me - I alternated between being mesmerized and disturbed, and I just couldn't put it down.  When I reached the last page, I was not ready for it to be over, and the ending blew me away and yet left a small part of me wondering.  This was a fantastic read!!

One of the absolute best books I've read all year. Fuller builds so much tension in early pages and I just couldn't put this book down. There's a trail of breadcrumbs throughout and I'm a careful reader and was shocked by the end. I went back and found well-placed clues that I couldn't believe I'd missed. I picking this book for my book club this year!

Although not at all what I expected, this beautifully complex novel was intriguing, challenging, and delightfully engaging. The then and now arrangement of book chapters is similar to that of Just Fall, but not at all confusing. If anything, it made me love it more! Everything you think you know is turned on its head at the end of novel, leaving me both satisfied and unsatisfied. Needless to say, I can't stop thinking about it.

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I started this book at 4am in the hope that after a few pages I would be able to fall asleep. Dawn came and went and I still couldn’t put it down. There are no real surprises in the book, but you have to read on in the vain hope that you are wrong. The book is very well written. Peggy’s extreme loneliness and her bafflement as she tries to make sense of her father’s moods and increasingly erratic behaviour come across very well. Any child wants to believe in their parent – especially when there is no information calling their credibility into question. The extreme and unrelenting situation in which Peggy finds herself would severely tax an adult – let alone a young child. Because she has no choices, she appears to cope remarkably well. As the book starts with Peggy back in London, it is clear that the situation is resolved – but how is not clear until right at the end. An excellent, remorseless read – but don’t attempt it if you want to fall asleep

Great 8 year old narrator who is 17 by the time the novel ends. The author makes a fantastic situation believable through good description and the child's perceptions and struggle to adapt. So much deception on many levels makes the story more complex by the conclusion.
