I liked the book. I am 85 so I know how life was like in those times.
Betty’s story starts in the 1940’s but we start the book in present day as she is dying. Just before she goes, she tells her granddaughter, Nicola, to take care of the baby’s in the bottom of the garden. When Nicola asks her mother who tells her it was just the ramblings of a dying woman. Then Maisie, Nicola’s daughter finds a bone while playing in the garden which prompts Nicola to call in the police. What follows is generations of women going through live with relationships, rapes, teenage pregnancy, and so much more. Each generation keeping secrets from the next but causing more pain for themselves. This is truly a heartbreaking story. I will be the first to admit that I don’t really rush to pick up stories like these. But this one sounded good and I wanted a change. This story pulled me in from the beginning with Betty dying and Nicola’s mother essentially brushing it off. I could just tell that there was more to this story than a simple falling out. I don’t want to give away too many details but I will say that you will need some Kleenex when you are done reading this book. The last part finished tearing up my heart when I didn’t think I could take much more. This is a great, sad, read and one I recommend checking out. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
