For a decade and a half, Rachel Cunningham has chosen to lock herself away in a psychiatric facility, tortured by gaps in her memory and the certainty that she is responsible for her parents’ deaths. But when she learns new details about their murders, Rachel returns, in a quest for answers, to the place where she once felt safest: her family’s sprawling log cabin in the remote forests of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. As Rachel begins to uncover what really happened on the day her parents were murdered, she learns–as her mother did years earlier–that home can be a place of unspeakable evil, and that the bond she shares with her sister might be the most poisonous of all.
Wow, I really enjoyed this one! The story had me gripped from the beginning. I loved the setting of the remote country house. I absolutely love books set in remote places, there is something very gripping about them. It wasn’t really a story with huge twists and turns. Once they start telling Jenny’s story we’re kind of clear on what the story is going to be. I had in my head that there could have been something else going on but as it went on it was clear I was right so there wasn’t really a twist. Who was involved was quite obvious throughout. But I tried not to let that get in the way of how much I liked the book. I really did connect with the characters and I couldn’t put the book down. I would have liked to have seen more of Diana and Charlotte from their own perspectives just to understand them better. I will definitely be reading more from this author!
