One of Sarah's daughters died. But can she be sure which one? A terrifying psychological thriller that will chill you to the bone.
A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, died in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcraft move to the tiny Scottish island Angus inherited from his grandmother, hoping to put together the pieces of their shattered lives.
But when their surviving daughter, Kirstie, claims they have mistaken her identity - that she, in fact, is Lydia - their world comes crashing down once again.
As winter encroaches, Angus is forced to travel away from the island for work, Sarah is feeling isolated, and Kirstie (or is it Lydia?) is growing more disturbed. When a violent storm leaves Sarah and her daughter stranded, Sarah finds herself tortured by the past: What really happened on that fateful day one of her daughters died?
"Unbearably gripping and suspenseful." (Sophie Hannah)
"With its creepy premise and bleak but beautiful settings, S.K. Tremayne has created a haunting, powerful thriller." (Paula Daly, author of Just What Kind of Mother Are You?)

No I wouldn't recommend it. It has some good features, and the story promises much at the start, but it disintegrates into nonsense.
The mother was quite simply unbearably annoying and I felt no empathy for her. Her behaviour towards the end of the book became hard to tolerate and I found it difficult to listen all the way to the end.
The end came as a relief!

Awful Scottish accents
Someone who has never heard a Scottish person speak
I'm only a couple of chapters into this book and struggling to want to listen to what is a promising plot. The Scottish accents are so abysmal it is hard to listen to. I've found it so grating I've actually switched off on a couple of occasions. I'm not the only one to find the narration off putting (and wish I had read all the reviews before I bought the book) and find it hard to understand why anyone was cast a narrator who can't represent a mans voice and certainly can't do a Scottish accent.
