Quotes Yvonne (Fiction Books) Liked

Harriet Tyce
“Thoughts creep in of time earlier than that, a darker night some months before, the old barrister who thought that young female pupils were his for the taking, his for the groping. I had to struggle hard, kick him harder still before I was able to break free. I stop at the place where it happened, to the left of the stairs, wiping my hands down my skirt. Nearly two decades ago but still fresh in my mind.”
Harriet Tyce, The Lies You Told

Harriet Tyce
“Nothing should be unforgivable," he says. We should always strive to see both sides of the story.”
Harriet Tyce, The Lies You Told

“All this stuff we tell them, by your best, not be the best. I'm not sure that Julia has got that memo yet.”
Harriet Tyce, The Lies You Told

Harriet Tyce
“I go upstairs into Robin's room, lying down on the small bed. I want proximity to the daughter I love, not the mother who hated me. But until my daughter is home, I will never have the proximity I want.”
Harriet Tyce, The Lies You Told

Harriet Tyce
“I clutch my hands together as the reading begins: 'Jesus, suffer the little children...' It's the wrong way round. The little children suffer. How they suffer. Forced to sing and dance on command, live out their parents' hopes, dreams. Fix all their failures.”
Harriet Tyce, The Lies You Told

Yvonne (Fiction Books) Hi Natalia!
This was one of the most twisted and devious storylines I have read for ages. Author Harriet Tyce certainly knows how to keep a reader guessing right until the last minute. I had so many suspects and I still didn't get it right!!


Yvonne (Fiction Books) Hi Elinor,
The ratings for this one are really good, and now I can see exactly why! Harriet tells a gruesome story of jealousy at its worst - but this is so much more. You really need to read it for yourself! :)


Yvonne (Fiction Books) Hi Tracy,
Thanks for stopping by. If you like a good, twisted thriller, you'll love this one I'm sure! :)


Yvonne (Fiction Books) Hi Freda,
I see from your current reading, that you do enjoy a good thriller from time to time. This one is highly recommended, with more than enough thrills for the average person! :)


Yvonne (Fiction Books) Hi Farrah,
I see that you just enjoyed 'Invisible Girl' by Lisa Jewel. Well, if you liked that one, then 'The Lies You Told' will be right up your street. Character driven, but with a really mind bending plot! :)


Yvonne (Fiction Books) For all you 'First Page Browsers' out there, this post shares the opening lines of this amazing book...
