The chapters in the book alternate between Christie and Eleanor with their husbands stories woven in. It seems like two different books meshed into one, yet common sense dictates there must be an overlap or connection so I kept looking for clues to merge the stories . When it comes, it's unexpected and you start to question everything you read. Totally not what I expected! A book about human nature and how an unresolved past can warp each one of us so easily. A good holiday read.
