Family curses don’t exist. Sure, some families seem to suffer more pain than others, but a curse? An actual curse? I don’t think so.’
A family tragedy was the catalyst for Ian Perkins to return to the isolated cottage with his wife and young son. But now they are back, it seems yet more grief might befall the family.
There is still time to act, but that means Ian must face the uncomfortable truth about his past. And in doing so, he must uncover the truth behind the supposed family curse.
A mysterious story with a touch of paranormal, had this story been a film- I would have been hiding behind a cushion at times as this is a story that will have your pulse racing.
This is not my normal genre of book to read, so I was a bit apprehensive after reading the sypnosis.Yet from the first page I was intrigued and knew I would enjoy this book.
The story switched from past to present with ease, which is something I struggle to keep up with in some books but I followed this story easily.
I felt sorry for Ian, it was revealed throughout the story how his brother Stewart was the golden child and Ian was the black sheep of the family- yet Ian was the one who made something of his life ! Favouritism is something we all witness in our lives so we can relate to how Ian feels. Even in the present day Ian’s life doesn’t appear to be straight forward – he has a wife Rachel whose mood swings irritated me, he seems to be up to his eyes with paperwork, researching his family tree, the only good thing he has in his life is his son Harry !
This book has so many twists and turns, it really captured my attention throughout and the ending – wow, I’m not going to say much apart from my jaw hurts from where my mouth dropped open !
