During a cold, British winter, three women reach crisis point. Emily, an immigrant survivor of the Rwandan genocide is existing but not living. Vera, a newly Christian Londoner is striving to live a moral life, her happiness constantly undermined by secrets from her past. Lynn, battling with an untimely disease, is consumed by bitterness and resentment of what she hasn’t achieved and what has been snatched from her.
Each suffering their own demons, their lives have been torn open by betrayal: by other people, by themselves, by life itself. But as their paths interweave, they begin to unravel their beleaguered pasts, and inadvertently change each other’s futures.

This was a great emotional read, make sure you have the tissues ready; the three main characters are women we can all relate to and the author brought them to life with great care, weaving them together into the story and drawing you in, I could not put this book down; in fact I stayed up most of the night as I was so engrossed I did not realise I had been reading for so long!! Don’t let this one pass you by, I can’t wait for the next one from Jemma Wayne.
