‘And so now I will always be something other than what everyone thought I was. Something other than what I wished to be. That is the price I will pay, forever. And so be it.’
‘Home Truths” is twisted... but subtly so... it is masterfully written... it kind of creeps up on you ...
Tina Seskis is a talented writer and completely threw me off course, so much so I just had to swipe madly... to find out what was going on...
From very early on I was convinced I knew who the villain was... I was wrong...
The novel moves quickly, detailing the lives of two couples over decades. I became addicted quickly to the characters and wanted to keep reading to know where it was all going. Each chapter is dedicated to one of four main characters so you truly become part of their world, feeling their feelings.. seeing things through their eyes...
I really liked the way each chapter told the story and I loved that it was easy to follow with concise chapters. It’s full of secrets and lies but you won’t be able to quite put your finger on it all until the final pages where a big twist throws the reader and then I was shocked at the deception that I’d totally missed.

So much so I read it in a few hours
There is a feeling of delicious menace and ‘what is behind all the characters stories in all these sub plots’ all the way through and an uneasy ( yet exciting ) taut feeling that you are getting nearer and nearer to the truth
Whats great in this book is that you don’t actually get anywhere near the truth until the last few pages when everything makes sense, the wonderful 1 sentence that pieces the 300 or so previous pages together and you think ‘ SO THATS IT’
I am not giving anything away about this psychological thriller except to say it is brilliantly done, clever, tense and yet you dont know why its so tense or what it is leading up to you just know it is and know all is going to be revealed
Easy and pleasurable to read, a wonderful diverse cast of characters and a story that will leave you unsettled yet thrilled and wish you had thought of such a good tale
And I loved that Bounds Green ( where I once lived many moons ago) was mentioned
This was my first reads selection for November and I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes their imagination stretched!
I'm afraid I've marked it down because, unlike the previous reviewers, I did work out fairly early on what was happening, although not the full extent!
The final twist is magnificent!
