I couldn't put this book down and read it very quickly just to find out what was going to happen to Sara and her selfish husband Tom. Both orphans, they cling to each other and make a pact never to have children bacause "we are all the family we need." All through her life Sara has been haunted by a dream of a young girl in a white dress and red shoes poised on the edge of a river.

This is the fourth book I have read but Penelope Evans and if it possible I would probably rate it 3.5 stars. At times it was a very good, creepy tale and at other times I found it exasperating. The weakness of Sara, the main character and her unlikeable husband, Tom made it a bit difficult to enjoy in parts but ultimately Sara finds her strength and there are some interesting twists in the end.
