Review by autumngirl70
I loved the way the chapters alternated between the narration of Violet and Will. Each reveals a little more information about family life in the Hurst household, but you’re not sure how much of it is the truth.My favourite character was Violet as I felt sorry for her and how her life was panning out.Overall I really liked the book. There were a couple of twists I didn’t see coming and the ending tied up a few loose ends for me, which I like. You’ve invested time in getting to know the characters and it’s good to know what happens to them and where they are going after you have turned the last page.I received a copy of this book from lovereading.co.uk in exchange for an unbiased review.

This book was a stunning story of how you never upset your mother but all in all loved this book not even half way throw the story and I wanted to really slap the mother repeatedly the end on the other hand could have been better but this didn't hamper the story in any way so saying that I would recommend to all my friends and I would like to thank the author for bring this book to fruition and I will be looking out for more of her works with that all said keep smiling and happy reading with love from wee me.xxxxxxxxxx
