I am a bit stuck with what to say with this book, and not in a negative way!
I absolutely loved this book, I couldn’t read it fast enough and lost an entire nights sleep as i just couldn’t find a place to stop reading for the night! I tried twice, putting it down, turning the lights out but my brain just didn’t want to switch off so in the end i gave in trying and just finished the book 🙂
If you have read any of Lulu Taylor’s other books then you will love this one. I personally think this is her best book so far by a mile. And I have read all her books to date.
You really need a nice cuppa tea and a duvet day to escape into a very cold, very snowy dual time line mystery, with a touch of winter romance of course! You may even like me be in need of a tissue or two! And i don’t cry easily at anything! There are very few books that have genuinely made me cry, Watership Down, Black Beauty, Wuthering Heights and Anne Victoria Roberts books, Lousia Elliot and Liams Story. Those two are my go too books if i feel low, and now this one 🙂
The story is set over two different time periods with 2 main protagonists, Tommy in 1947 and Caitlyn in the present day.
Both women find themselves young widows with children to raise on their own and both women are still dealing with their own demons.
The book is full of intrigue and atmosphere and transports you back to the big freeze on 1947, the rations they were subjected to, even rations on electricity.
The plot twists between the two different women and entwines their story wonderfully, and just when you think you know what is coming, there is a twist so out the blue and unexpected taking you down an entirely different path.
I can’t say too much as i don’t want to ruin it for anyone else, but it really is a wonderful surprising book that you lose yourself in.
This book will be published on 30th November 17 in the UK and can be pre ordered from
