6 year old Ben is at a birthday party where he witnesses a brutal murder and is the sole survivor of this crime scene. While at the hospital he crosses paths with Lucy, an ER physician at the hospital. Ben doesn’t speak when the police, and Lucy herself try to talk to him to see how he is feeling and to get some answers about that fateful and terrifying night. Without Ben talking they are unable to get any answers at all and are left with nothing but question marks about that night. But how can they get Ben to talk? Does he remember what happened?
On the other side of town lives a woman named Clare who will soon be celebrating her 100th birthday. She has kept many secrets from her past for all of these years and didn’t think they mattered anymore. That is until one day she realizes she has to tell her secrets.
The question is, what brings all 3 of the main characters together? They were destined to meet, but why?
This book was a fantastic read from the first chapters through to the end. There were many shocking twists and turns that I did not see coming and many surprises to keep your interest throughout. And who doesn’t love a good twisty, turny murder mystery?
This book will pull at your heart strings and make you feel many different emotions. I loved how the book was written, how you get a glimpse into each character and their lives, and get an understanding of how they all come together in the end. Such a compelling, heart warming story that you simply cannot put down. A must read to add to your collection.
