LAURA ELLIOT    Book Number: 89377    Product format: Paperback

A swallow flutters its wings into a dimly lit attic as Adele Foyle stumbles across the secret diary of the mother she has never met and a shocking account of a crime committed over 25 years ago. Adele Foyle has returned to Reedstown, the last place her mother Marianne was seen alive. Adele's arrival and the diary spread like wildfire amongst the small close-knit community. Old memories are stirring up fresh wounds. No-one wants the truth to be told of what happened one cool April evening when 15 year old Marianne lays out a rug on the stone floor of an abandoned cottage and waits for her boyfriend Shane. Shane was never to arrive and by the end of the night, Marianne's life was shattered into a million pieces. Born into a Mother and Baby home run by The Thorns, a self-proclaimed religious group led by Gloria Thornton, Adele needs to first unlock the disturbing chain of events that led to her own birth if she is to understand what happened to her mother. An emotionally engrossing and gripping thriller. 394pp in large softback.
