A chance meeting with the charismatic geneticist, Anthony Blake, reawakens her desire for love and, at the same time, her daughter Charlie shows signs of wishing to know more about her father. Both the past and the future are places Sally prefers not to think about, but if she wants to find happiness, she will first have to come to terms with her long-ago marriage. Only then will she be able to be honest with Charlie. And herself.

This is the first book I’ve read by Alison Booth and I was immediately drawn to the book by the stunning cover. Reading the synopsis I was intrigued and couldn’t wait to get stuck in and I wasn’t disappointed.
Sally was a great character, she has a secret that haunts her and it’s only when she meets a handsome man and her daughter Charlie, starts asking questions about her late father that Sally has to face up to the past before she can move on.
The story goes back and forth and is told in “then” and “now” sections that span over ten years. It’s very cleverly done and although I did find the “then” parts a little confusing to start with it all became clear, almost like a little light bulb moment and I totally got how the author was telling this story.
I’m being very vague with this review as I really don’t want to give away anything and I’m really glad I basically knew nothing about the book before I read it. It’s a story that you can’t help being drawn straight in to, one that is very difficult to put down once you start. This is definitely a book I would recommend and I’m looking forward to seeing what other books I have previously missed by this author.
