However…I’m totally and utterly confused. In slightly reverse order, having read and enjoyed the book, I was a little curious to see what the ‘blurb’ said. And therein I find there’s a character I haven’t even heard of. I really thought, well, that’s it. I’ve finally qualified for men-in-white-coats-ville. Further confusion reigned when I realise the other characters and…more importantly the plot…are identical. In short, my main character—Ourania—morphed into ‘Rennie’. What on earth?
Anyway…confusion aside (and at least the character didn’t change name during the story) this was a Very Good Book.
Secrets can change lives. They changed Ourania’s, a competent electrician…and fosterparent…they changed Troy’s, the eldest son of a rich and powerful family and the strain of keeping secrets change the lives of two young children. Secrets that are held by a magnificent old oak tree.
This is a powerful drama with strong, solid characters in a robust plot. There are twists and turns, and although I guessed the major twist fairly early on, Nolfi writes with such passion and compassion, intelligently and articulately, and the story builds to such a dramatic climax, it really didn’t matter.
I will certainly be checking out more books by this author, and I really wouldn’t mind catching up with Ourania (Rennie, whatever she’s supposed to be called) and Troy.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

It is both a delightful, relaxed read and a page-turner. There are twists, turns, love, laughter, dark and light. The characters are so real I found myself with a mix of emotions on every page, from being frustrated at the previous life the two foster children, to nodding in agreement at the dificulties of juggling parenthood with work.
Christine Nolfi knows how to put people's personalities across on the page in such a way you feel you know them in real life, something that some authors do not manage with such ease.
A great book for a rainy Sunday afternoon, complete with a hot chocolate in hand.
