Whilst this is an easy read novel, it is also full of emotional turmoil and grief from the very first chapter! Everyone apparently has their own feelings of guilt following the tragic death of Dillon. As you read more of the story, secrets that had been hidden for years, start to be revealed explaining so much of why the family wouldn’t and couldn’t let go of the grief over his death.

Eilidh Falls is a small town where everyone assumes they know everyone else’s business but in this community there are so many secrets being hidden – even from close family members. It takes another tragic event, her Mum being hospital, to bring Alex back to the town where she believes her father has never forgiven her for her brother Dillon’s death whilst in her charge eight years ago. This has had a severe impact on her relationships with her family and friends from that era that are all brought back into focus by her return.

It is a great story demonstrating the importance and tenacity of family bonds, the power of forgiveness and shows that some secrets which tear families apart can bring them back together once revealed if everyone endeavours to be honest, especially to themselves. Poignant, it is often a sad story but it certainly has its happy moments and is a very entertaining family saga.

Thanks to the publishers for providing me with an ARC paperback of this book for me to read in exchange for this, an honest review.
