Daughter - Jane Shemilt
How well do you really know those you love?
Jenny loves her three teenage children and her husband, Ted, a celebrated neurosurgeon. She loves the way that, as a family, they always know each other's problems and don't keep secrets from each other.
But when her youngest child, fifteen-year-old Naomi, doesn't come home after her school play and a nationwide search for her begins, secrets previously kept from Jenny are revealed.
Naomi has vanished, leaving her family broken and her mother desperately searching for answers. But the traces Naomi's left behind reveal a very different girl to the one Jenny thought she'd raised. And the more she looks the more she learns that everyone she trusted has been keeping secrets.
How well does she really know her sons, her husband? How well did she know Naomi? If Jenny is going to find her, she'll have to first uncover the truth about the daughter she thought told her everything.
I was asked to review this for Netgalley. When I was given a copy and read the synopsis, I was like yeah I can read this as this is my sort of book.
I am afraid it was too slow for me to read. I couldn't get into where the characters was going. I was going back and forth with the story between a year difference. Without giving the storyline away, I just wasn't sure who did what or what was happening between the two years that it was jumping between.
