Beckford is a place to get rid of troublesome women......
I stayed up all night for this one! How can one little town hold SO MANY SECRETS?! Jules has been away for a long time, but she's back to solve the death of her estranged sister Nell. Overlooking a greenish-black river that holds centuries of secrets, this story is urgent, and desperate. The emotion and memory of the characters shapes how the mystery unfolds. You'll meet a lot of characters, but you will never guess this ending. It didn't quite meet my expectation based on how much I loved The Girl On The Train, but highly entertaining nonetheless!
"It’s, like, when someone has an affair, why does the wife always hate the other woman? Why doesn’t she hate her husband? He’s the one who’s betrayed her, he’s the one who swore to love her and keep her and whatever forever and ever. Why isn’t he the one who gets shoved off a cliff?”
A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.
Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she'd never return.
Beware a calm surface--you never know what lies beneath.
