We are the ghosts of lives stolen
And lives never lived;
Once we were heavy
But now we are light;
I promise, we will never burden you.


Loved this audio narration dealing with troubled girls, family secrets and burden of love gone astray. A six year old disappears in the night, presumed to be taken from her bed in 1930s.. her grand niece is bequeathed with their family house, and her great grand niece uncovers a secret.
The lost girl's elder sisters too lose themselves in a metaphorical way. Their devastated mother almost loses her life, and their father slowly withers away.
Two brothers, their semi Indian neighbours are also irreparably affected due to the events taking place one idyllic summer vacation in the small village surrounded by a lake.
This story oscillates between 1930s and 2000s... and beautifully ties up three generations.
A must-read for all psychothriller fans.
