    1. A bleak, ominous, compelling portrait of the shadows of childhood grief and abuse, the guilt these engender, and ultimately the tragic trust of a child left with an abusive parent.The tragedy of Brian and Julie losing their bright seven year old son to an accident sends both parents back to exaggerated, desperate versions of their childhood selves struggling with inflamed flaws and hopeless compensations for a lack of love Julia flees to Brian s father in Ireland, an austere and wholly righteous [...]

    2. Another op shop find, picked almost randomly on the title and because it was Irish I plodded through this, and nearly abandoned it a couple of times It nearly got left at the checkout in Woolies on a particularly slow day when I was reading as I waited for the woman in front to return to the line after her third trip for something urgent she just had to have, omg, I m SO sorry you don t mind do you , and then I accidentally on purpose left it in a coffee shop but the waitress ran after me to giv [...]

    3.

    4. I really did enjoy it Takes you on a journey, this one So sad, horrifying, at times gripping, but leaves you feeling wistful It s a good book, and I ll definitely be reading something else from this author at some point in the future.

    5. I am looking forward to reading this book since I work with children and adults with speech and language disorders The brief synopsis of this book sounds quite appealing and I look forward to reading this book.

    6. I bought this immediately after I read Involved But I stopped halfway as it did not maintain my interest as her previous book did But I won t give up on this author as she writes very well.

    7. I think that 2 and a half stars would be my vote for this one Story kept me intrigued as was revealed about the family history but it just wasn t powerful enough for me in the end.
