Laurel was kidnapped at the age of 6. Her sister, Faith, and family never lost hope that she would be found but we see their lives are deeply affected by this event.
Thirteen years later, Laurel appears.
Things are not quite what they seem, and this was an interesting exploration of the impact of such an event on the family. I had my suspicions, but nothing prepared me for the sucker-punch of the ending.
I’d not read anything by Cat Clarke prior to this, but I am keen to try more by her. Though I didn’t particularly like the subject matter, I felt this was well-handled and the characters were sensitively portrayed.
