Vinda, did you read it and like it? I’ve not read it yet, but see it’s an Amazon Prime First Reads selection for October, since it doesn’t release until Nov 1. Author Kate Moretti also wrote The Vanishing Year, and seems to be a writer of Gothic and Thrillers. I’ve not read any of her books yet, but may pick it as one of my two selections this month if you liked it, or one of her other books. I read Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia earlier this year and enjoyed it (SPL has the audiobook which with a current hold wait of 55 days). The book Vanishing Half, the topic of discussion here, was written by Brit Bennett, and your comment above, “We all have hidden parts of our lives,” would be accurate to say about The Vanishing Half, as choices are made to repress the past to live a better life, keeping secrets even from close family. Choosing the path of least resistance can take a toll, as fear of secrets being discovered weighs heavily on the human heart.
