From the first moment I started this book, I couldn’t put it down. I loved this story so much. Jaime Jo Wright does a wonderful job weaving the past and the present in a compelling way. Both Annalise and Libby are strong characters although they might not think so. I love the depth of character each of them have as they search out clues to solve the mystery. I didn’t feel lost or confused at all as the story jumped centuries. It honestly doesn’t matter which time period you live in, people are the same. Everyone has secrets and sometimes sharing the secret is the first step into a better you. I feel like the reader can learn valuable truths right along side the character. This book looks like it would be dark and scary but its the perfect blend of mystery, adventure and suspense.
I highly recommend this book to my family and friends.
I received this book from the publisher to read and write my honest opinion.
