Official Blurb:

On a train with her husband, miles from home and their four-year-old son, Ben, Sophie receives a chilling phone call. Two boys are in hospital after a tragic accident. One of them is Ben.
She thought she could trust Emma, her new friend, to look after her little boy. After all, Emma’s a kindred spirit—someone Sophie was sure she could bare her soul to, despite the village rumours. But Sophie can’t shake the feeling that she’s made an unforgivable mistake and now her whole family is in danger.
Because how well does she know Emma, really? Should she have trusted her at all?
Time is running out. Powerless to help her child, still hours from home, Sophie is about to discover the truth. And her life will never be the same.

My Thoughts:

This was really well written, it kept you hooked right from the beginning as you didn’t know why Sophie was on the train on her own. Where had she been, or where had she been going to be so far away from home, and why had she left her son with Emma in the first place if she didn’t trust her? The story goes backwards and forwards between the present on the train and piecing together the past, and you can’t wait for the whole story to reveal itself.
I had to read a few parts twice to really let the story sink in as I couldn’t believe what I was reading when all the pieces were revealed.
Another brilliant book and a further author to add to my list that I now need to read her back catalogue!
