Keller Baye and Rebecca Brown live on different sides of the Atlantic. Until she falls in love with him, Rebecca knows nothing of Keller. But he’s known about her for a very long time, and now he wants to destroy her.
This is the story of two families. One living under the threat of execution in North Carolina. The other caught up in a dark mystery in the Scottish Highlands. The families’ paths are destined to cross. But why? And can anything save them when that happens?
This was the first book that I read by this author, but I am sure it won’t be the last.
The story alternates between 2 families, one in Scotland, the other North Carolina with the time frames of 2007 and 2021.
At first, I was a bit confused as to how and what was going on and how these 2 families could be connected. But the author’s writing style and the narrative kept me glued to the pages. There was an underlying intrigue that I had to know how it was all going to come together. So glad I did!
Caveat: This will be a very vague review because I don’t want to give anything away!
Keller Baye, has had a very unfortunate childhood, which with every waking hour is planning for revenge after watching his father be put to death in a North Carolina jail. Rebecca Brown also had a difficult childhood. At the age of 4, her and her 2 siblings, lost their parents in a horrific car accident, and who now live with their paternal grandparents in Scotland. As Rebecca gets older, she wants to know more of what happened that fateful day. How are these 2 families connected?
This book has it all. Secrets, betrayals, vengeance, revenge, stalking, lies, and love, both irrational and unconditional.
The author’s writing style I very much enjoyed. She weaves and interweaves these 2 families in an intricate narrative that kept me turning the pages.
Read an excerpt:
Jenny is a novelist, screenplay writer and playwright. After a series of ‘proper jobs’, she realised she was living someone else’s life and escaped to Gascony to make gîtes. Knee deep in cement and pregnant, Jenny was happy. Then autism and a distracted spine surgeon wiped out the order. Returned to wonderful England, to write her socks off.
Jenny would like to see the Northern Lights but worries that’s the best bit and should be saved till last. Very happily, and gratefully, settled with family.
She tries not to take herself too seriously.
