I received a copy of this book too. It was a lovely surprise! I've never read anything by this author so I'm looking forward to getting stuck into this book.

I have never read anything by Sophie Hannah before but will look out for her in future. I read the book in just two very long sittings! At first I thought it was going to be a tale of the supernatural, but....
It was such a gripping story from the beginning with many twists and turns along the way. While some of the plot did stretch incredulity a little, the study of coercive control was very accurate. Sadly recent news stories have shown this to be so.

Purpledaffodil Sat 21-Dec-19 09:34:22

Not sure if questions to the author were requested, but I would like to ask Sophie if there is a film of the book in the offing? The settings would make this a visual delight too.

eGJ Sat 21-Dec-19 17:11:52

Read it in one session as it is a page turning, riveting read. Question to Sophie - are you planning to carry the story forward with a sequel? I’m sure we will want to know what happened to the characters next!

Thanks GN, a very different read and not one I would have picked up and bought having just scanned the first chapter. No spoilers for all the other recipients, but it will distract you from the hoovering, present wrapping and canapé making!?

GrandmaJan Sun 22-Dec-19 11:32:41

I haven’t read anything by Sophie Hannah before and probably wouldn’t have chosen one of her books but now I’m a fan. I am finding it difficult to put the book down.

Just about to start it. Thanks for my copy.
