Gripping story so skilfully told.

Couldn't wait to get back to this book each time I had to stop reading and re-enter real life or go to sleep. It stayed with me and it really mattered. This is a story you get involved in and feel strongly about. The writer seems to care too. I like the different voices she uses and the way she allows us into the thoughts and feelings of her characters and the two time periods are effective and believable. It's the 2nd book I have read recently where the writer explores rape, a difficult topic to hang a story around. However both books are profoundly moving and provide a real insight into the actual experience of rape and all that follows when a woman decides to go to the police. The other book is Fredrik Backman's The Scandal, or Beartown as it is known as in USA. Both highly recommended for male and female readers.
