I received a copy of this book from the book club reviewer request- thank you
It’s not my usual choice of book but that’s not to say I didn’t really enjoy the book. I loved the twists and turns, especially the way the story moved backwards and forwards through time
I didn’t expect it but the book was really quite thought provoking
A really solid book
