STAR RATINGS GUIDE
💛 Oh this was so creepy. The last thing (main character) Nicola’s grandmother says is just chilling and the plot development brilliant from there. Highly recommend.
💚 The characters are real, the story believable and so thought provoking. There’s a fantastic friction between the generations that provides authentic obstacles.
💗 If you like this, try Elizabeth is Missing, which has similar themes but is told in a very different way. Lisa Jewell is also a great go to for tales of dark family secrets.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 I thoroughly enjoyed the vast majority of the performance. Nicola's and Betty’s voices are brilliantly conveyed by Joan Walker and Sarah Durham.
🎧 There is one aspect of narration that I couldn’t STAND. There are interludes with extracts from letters from a male with an American accent and these are read by one of the narrators. It was not good.
