When the Mason’s move into the house across the street from Hannah she can’t help but envy them. They have the life that she didn’t have, all she had was fear and the confines of her small house and even smaller world. As she watches the family from her window she realises that something isn’t quite right and somehow she finds the strength to look deeper, but with her history no one would ever believe her.
This thriller had me hooked from the start. Hannah is a vulnerable character who has to draw deeply for the strength to fight. When she sees April, a young teenager with an even more vulnerable and delicate nature, she wants more than anything to protect her from her violent father. The story becomes increasingly disturbing towards the end and I could not put it down. Well-written and brilliantly executed chilling thriller, I thoroughly recommend it.
