A terrible accident changes the lives and friendship of Catrin and Rachel forever. The trust they once shared. Their prefect families and lives are shattered.When a child goes missing the small community are trying their best to find the child putting Catrin and Rachel close to one another.
This is a very emotional story. There is so much grief that dark clouds seem to step of the pages to surround the reader. A lot of children and animals die in this book. The mystery level is brilliant. I could not help myself and puzzled along for the whole book being pleasantly surprised by the end. Which sounds totally wrong combined with the story but I really did not see that coming.
Catrin's grief is heart breaking and it was easy to feel for her though I found her scary cold at times too. Still the difference between rational decisions and moves made by grief are clear in the story making her even more vulnerable.
Callum is a very troubled character but it becomes clear pretty quick that his intentions are driven by good. His doubt about himself does made that I started doubting him at some point too and some of his revelations did surprise me. He sure is an interesting part in the story.
It takes a long time to find out more about Rachel and though that is interesting to set an atmosphere I felt she did not get a fair change to defend herself. The more you get to know her the easier it gets to feel sorry for her situation too.
