Lori Spyker hasn’t spoken or seen her brother, Scott in twenty years, so when she is informed that he has been injured and in the hospital she’s unsure why she is being contacted. When being asked some things concerning her brother, Lori is unable to answer because she simply doesn’t know.

Arriving at the hospital, Lori feels like she is visiting a stranger, even though Scott is her brother. Lori is a wife and mother, but she has no idea if Scott is married or has kids. What she does know is that their teenage years was not a great time of their lives and one she preferred to leave in the past. But the past always has a way of returning which meant she would have to tell her own family about her hidden past.

When I began this book I wasn’t sure what to expect and I must admit it was a little slow to begin with, but once I got into the story a bit more it soon became an intriguing page turner. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Life Before by Aussie author Carmel Reilly. I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who loves a bit of intrigue and mystery in their novels.

With thanks to Allen & Unwin for my uncorrected proof copy to read and review.
