Even the deepest buried secrets can find their way to the surface...

Moments before she dies, Nicola's grandmother Betty whispers to her that there are babies at the bottom of the garden.

Nicola's mother claims she was talking nonsense. However, when Nicola's daughter finds a bone while playing in Betty's garden, it's clear that something sinister has taken place.

But will unearthing painful family secrets end up tearing Nicola's family apart?

What starts off as a simple enough request on a deathbed, turns into a rather fraught suspenseful book, with some huge family secrets to unravel. 

Taking in 3 generations of the family, with some of the past revealed at the end of each chapter, this is an epic story. 

It was also a book that was close to impossible to put down.  

At times it is dealing with uncomfortable topics that may upset some people. I won't say what they are as it does give an element of spoiler. 

Maisie was perhaps my favourite character, as she could be counted upon to relive the tension in any scene she was in. She is very funny and cute as an 8 year old can be. 

Loved the storytelling of this book, and it is another great story from Linda Green.

Thank you to Quercus and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
