Mrs Helen Auld Writing on : Amazon Awarded : 5 stars
Tantalisingly terrifying. In considering the title and ending together, the reader is led carefully by the all-seeing narrator to a traumatically tragic climax which memorably depicts one of the finest examples of irony in modern fiction. Fate conspires to mould the lives of two elderly women, inextricably. The ties that bind them secrete a bitter, indigestible gall with heartbreaking consequences. This was a novel whose message moved me immensely: how sad that individuals have such enormous difficulty in communicating effectively. Alison Buck’s message is indeed a timeless one as its tragic effects are evident worlwide. Read it to explore and expand your own communication boundaries.

‘A novel you can’t put down!’
A brilliant new talent had emerged with the publication of this first book by Alison Buck. Brilliantly written, she draws you into the world of two women who’s well ordered lives slip from routine into confusion with disastrous consequences. All so plausible and well written, the book leads you chapter by chapter through their worlds to the dramatic and unexpected ending. I couldn’t put it down until I finished and I am looking forward to the next novel!

‘Twist in the tail in this psychological thriller’
Having read this as a paperback I was glad to see it arrive in kindle format at very affordable price…
It’s a psychological drama of two elderly sisters in their twilight years who are losing their grip on reality… it gets progressively more tense and has a surprising, even shocking, ending which is obviously inevitable after the event (all the clues were there) but still takes you by surprise (I won’t spoil it by saying any more). Wonderful. Like an Agatha Christie novel you definitely mustn’t read the last page early!
Give this a try you won’t regret it.
