Description

'Totally amazing. I love Diane's writing, just love it ...she is so skilled' - Cathy Kelly What if your child was accused of mass murder? When the local church is razed to the ground, dozens of trapped children manage to escape - many helped by fifteen-year-old Andy Lockwood. Born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Andy is more like a little boy that a teenager, but in the eyes of the people he saved, he's a hero. Laurel lost her son once through neglect and has spent the rest of her life determined to make up for her mistakes. Yet when suspicion of arson is cast upon Andy, Laurel must ask herself how well she really knows her son - and how far she'll go to protect him.

Fans of Jodi Picoult's style will love how Diane Chamberlain writes.' - Candisshow more

Our customer reviews

Just to warn you, this is the first book of two parts, the sequal being "Secrets she left behind". Don't read the back of the second book, as this will spoil the mysteries of this boook!show more
