Author: Lucy Dawson
‘WOW WOW WOW... what a book, I started this book this morning and I have finished this evening… completely gripped me… be prepared to be give up your day, YOU WILL NOT WANT TO PUT IT DOWN!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars I look down at her, lying fast asleep – always my little girl, and so beautiful. She gives a low moan as her head turns restlessly on the pillow. It reminds me of the soft growl of a cornered animal. Where is my poor child? What is she dreaming? People always notice my daughter, Isobel. How could they not? Incredibly beautiful... until she speaks. An unsettling, little-girl voice, exactly like a child’s, but from the mouth of a full-grown woman. Izzie might look grown-up, but inside she’s trapped. Caught in the day it happened – the day that broke her from within. I know why my daughter is the way she is. There’s nothing I could have done to save her... is there?
