Wow! It's quite some time since come across a book which has surprised me as much as this one .. what a fantastic read! Sophie: focussed, ambitious and smart. Aiden: army career, rigid routines, family man. Sophie and Aiden first crossed paths - literally - at the scene of a serious car accident, as we discover bit by bit throughout this tale. Sophie has always been close to her father, and as she struggles through her injuries he is on hand to help her at every turn. Aiden is an honourable man; his years in the army have left him with a strong moral compass and he strives to be a good example to his daughter by always doing the right thing. There are several other characters in this wonderful story and, long before it's mentioned, 'six degrees of separation' shot through my mind, and more than once. Family and work colleagues feature strongly in this novel. Friends not so much. It is, without doubt, a riveting read and one which demanded my full attention and with no idea where it was heading, I could hardly bear to put it down! What you see isn't always what you get and the varying personalities enticed me into the story, enthralled me while I was there and left me feeling in awe of this author's skill. The writing flows beautifully and this is a quite mesmerising read. I didn't know what to expect, but in retrospect the ending is absolutely perfect! This novel alone has propelled the author's name onto my 'must find out more' list. A full five stars (I'd give more if I could) and the highest recommendation. My thanks to publisher Michael Joseph, an imprint of Penguin UK, for my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
Good drama mystery
