3 journalers for this copy...
Tragedy isn't what the McNamara family expected when they moved to New Zealand. For Martha, it was an escape. For her artist husband Kit, it was a dream. For their small twin boys, it was an adventure. For sixteen-year-old Sacha, it was the start of a nightmare.
They end up on the isolated east coast of the North Island, seemingly in the middle of a New Zealand tourism campaign. But their peaceful idyll is soon shattered as the choices Sacha makes lead the family down a path which threatens to destroy them all.
Martha finds herself facing a series of impossible decisions, each with devastating consequences for her family.

As is so often the way, it’s told in two parts which compliment each other nicely. Starting with the immediate aftermath of the fall & being interspersed with Martha’s memories of the events leading up to it. It’s very readable, the easy style matched with the gripping storyline had me well & truly sucked in - the combination of knowing what’s going to happen but not how or why made for compelling reading… I needed to know!
”A series of choices….Martha thinks ”A left turn, a right turn & a wrong turn” & she certainly makes one or two questionable choices. Lying to the police for example re Finn’s accident… but why? Another incentive to keep reading! There seems to be quite a few things that family members are keeping from each other.
I don’t want to give anything away about the culprit. The signs are there, I picked up on them but as I was “looking” at things through Martha’s eyes I disregarded them too. It’s a shocker for Martha when the rose-tinted glasses finally fall from her eyes….what a situation to be in. How does a family stay together after something like that.
Overall, a captivating page turner about a family in crisis, the strength of a mother’s love & the ability to forgive.
