My rating: 4 of 5 stars
She always trusted her husband. Until he died. Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. But when Maisie starts having nightmares, Clara becomes obsessed that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident. Who wanted Nick dead? And, more importantly, why? Clara will stop at nothing to find out the truth – even if it makes her question whether her entire marriage has been a lie…
This story is told in two parts. Clara and her husband Nick. It’s a story of several themes, how people deal with grief, a police investigation and how marriages change over time, especially once children appear.
The suspense builds throughout the novel and the reader is challenged to make decisions about Clara’s thought process. Do we believe her that her husband was murdered by someone causing the accident? Or was it just one of those freak things?
A very classy novel that does what it says on the tin.
