Reading for the 2nd time. Most recently started June 12, 2018.

A compelling, often harrowing read, which flits between 1950s Sussex to modern-day Brighton. A single-mother journalist - Sam Harper - discovers intriguing letters linked to a now-derelict mother-and-baby home, which is soon to be demolished. With just days to find out more about the writer of the letters before the building is torn down, Sam sets off on a breakneck mission which uncovers some disturbing facts about the Catholic Church, a famous TV personality - and her own family.

Emily Gunnis leaves us guessing right to the end about how the characters are linked, making it a real page turner which I found hard to put down. The book has been really well researched too, and while the characters are fictional, the fact that these homes existed at all makes for a truly chilling read. Highly recommended if you want to lose yourself in a novel for a few days.
