Beautiful written, this story of families and relationships and secrets and love burrowed under my skin - I adored both Eva and Tatiana.

From the time I received the book to finishing it took me three days flat! I just couldn't put down this beautiful, mesmerising story. It's a beautiful story of a young woman's journey to the past to discover the secrets of her grandmother's past and whilst on this eye opening journey, she discovers the beautiful feeling in the world that she had been suppressing for a long time - Love.
This book is a must read!
