This book follows the parallel stories of Carmel and her mother after they become separated at a festival.

Each deals with the separation in different ways and this remains consistent throughout which is testament to the ability of the author.

However, I spent the whole book being slightly concerned that I was reading the literary equivalent of an M Night Shyamalan film with the ever present threat of the obvious being thrust in my face.

In the end, the read-on factor got the better of me and I pressed on quite quickly. The book grips you and I simply had to get to the end.

Does the end live up to the rest of the book? I didn’t think so, but it was a good journey in any case.
