Summary

Fourteen-year-old Mariel returns to England for her grandmother’s funeral. It is the first time she has been back since she emigrated with her mother as a baby, and it is the beginning of the uncovering of some really extraordinary truths about the Considine family. Why did Mariel’s mum argue with Grandma all those years ago? Why does Amelia wear so much perfume? Why is there a very large cat flap in Louvre House? And most importantly, what is the dark secret that lies at the heart of the family?

A good story, well performed

This is only my second Jones story, I already read the inheritance one. I have to admit I preferred that one, it felt like the story had more substance. This one left me a little confused as to where all the family fit together, but that didn't stop me enjoying the story.

I don't want to say too much in case it gives the story away, but it was really good.
