My Recommendation

A powerful, heartbreaking story of serious crime committed in young childhood, the dominoes that led to it and its aftermath and wider impacts on everyone affected. 

Nancy Tucker writes in a way that evokes such a strong flavour of tragedy-strewn nostalgia, even if you yourself experienced nothing remotely similar in your own early days and even if the time period the childhood years are set is not the one you grew up in. 

There are so many important topics presented in this novel which are not discussed enough. It is a difficult but brilliant read. 

Many thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a review copy.
