Many thanks to NetGalley, Atria Books and Lisa Jewell for the chanc to read another ook in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Carl met her on business in Ukraine and married her within a year, bringing her home with him to England, where she knows not a single soul.
But Alice does n't listen and offers the stranger a place to sleep for a few nights, given she learns he has no memory of who he is or where he goe from.
Eventually, Frank ( 40), as he calls himself for lack of any other name, begins to remember pieces of his life, believing he may have murdered someone and is looking for th young woman from years ago.Twenty-two years ago, the first story takes place.
At first Mark seems like th great young man and is very interested in Kirsty.
It begin in disaster that night, and as the chapters unfold, we see small pieces of the previous events. [ image error ] By two thirds into the ook, readers are questioning whether the stranger Frank is one of the two men from 22 years ago.
We 're confident the husband Lily is missing is Frank, who has no memory, but is he the supposedly good guy from 22 years ago, or he goo guy?
The stories egin to collide when Alice and Lily meet one another and realize they are each looking for answers.
There are 3 stories being told for the next two thirds of he bestsellin ( alternating chapters), prior to their intersection.
Readers can see how they shoul be connected, but we do n't remember which person is which person, as there is memory loss and a possible fake name being used.
And it 's one of the better books with alternating chapters between the three novel.
1. I 'm not completely sure I buy the memory loss story.
I ca n't ive too many details, but it eems to occur a bit too conveniently.2.
Seems like a goo idea to me and I do n't have children.Lily just married Carl after a yea and moved to th country?
But I wanted thi author 's writing style and ould definitely read nother ook by her.
