Meine Meinung:

Das Buch habe ich schon mehrmals gelesen und es halt mich immer wieder in seinen Bann gezogen. Wenn man es das erste mal liest ist man wirklich ständig am überlegen wie es denn ausgehen könnte, es gibt so viele Wege und doch kann man das Ende nicht vorrausahnen.

I'm a great fan of Judith Lennox and this book didn't disappoint, probably one of my favourites so far. I very much liked Alix the central character who the story is built around. Lots of other characters, fun, sadness, love, overwhelming grief, hatred, deceit - this book has it all. My one small criticism, is I felt the ending was a little rushed, otherwise a good read. Now are there anymore books by Judith Lennox I haven't yet read.....................

Gelezen : vertaald naar het nederlands.

Alix past als 14jarige op haar neefje. Maar tijdens een uitje verdwijnt hij en wordt hij niet meer teruggevonden. Dit feit bepaalt het verdere leven van vele mensen en in het bijzonder van Alix.
