    January 1992. A baby girl is left alone for a moment. Long enough for a mother to dash into a shop. Long enough for a child to be taken.
Thirteen years later, solicitor Robert Knight's stepdaughter wins a place at a prestigious London school for the gifted. The only puzzle is his wife Erin’s reaction.
Somewhere in his wife’s past lies a secret; a shocking secret that threatens to destroy everything...

My thoughts: 
      This was my third time starting reading this book. This time I made some effort and after some time the story grabbed me. The story is told by different narrators in 2 time lines: now and past. The narration of different women and different story lines intertwine in order to confuse the reader and distract his attention to a different guess. I quite enjoyed this game and did not guessed the end. Unfortunately the read was not an easy one as the topics were quite sensitive: child abuse, child abduction and domestic violence.
