How I Lost You - Jenny Blackhurst

I was unable to put this book down - I read it in a day, thank goodness I didn't start reading at night or I would have had no sleep.

Susan Webster is starting a new life as Emma Cartwright after serving 4 years in Oakdale Psychiatric Institute for killing her baby son, Dylan.  This is a crime she can't remember committing but her husband and doctors told her she did it.

Emma starts her new life in Ludlow, a quiet market town in Shropshire but one day she receives a letter addressed to Susan Webster with a photo of a little boy inside: 4 year old Dylan.  With the help of Cassie, her friend from Oakdale, and her new acquaintance Nick, a journalist, Susan sets out to discover if her son really is alive.  This takes her on a journey to Durham University as she uncovers the buried secrets of her husband's past.

This story has more twists and turns than a slinky.  It certainly kept me riveted from start to finish and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - but read it at your peril, you will lose a whole day of your life!

I received this book from the publisher via Bookbridgr in exchange for an honest review.

Buy it from The Book Depository
