Publisher's Summary

"I'm not safe - you have to help me..."
Little Lorna Bell is from a notorious family on a rundown estate. Everyone thinks she's a nasty piece of work. The schoolchildren call her a thief. But Lorna's hair is matted, her shoes pinch her feet, and school teacher Claire Penny can't help herself; some kids just need a bit more support, a bit more love, than the rest.
As the bond between teacher and pupil grows stronger, Claire sees Lorna's bruises, and digs to uncover the disturbing tale behind them. Heartbroken, Claire knows she has to act. She must make Lorna safe.
Just when Claire thinks she has protected Lorna, a chance encounter brings enigmatic stranger Marianne Cairns into their lives. Marianne seems generous and kind but there is something about her story that doesn't quite add up. Why does she feel so at home, and why is Lorna suddenly so unsettled?
Claire has risked everything to save Lorna. But what can save Claire from the shocking truth?
An utterly unputdownable and darkly compelling listen that will have fans of The Girl on the Train, The Sister, and Gone Girl absolutely hooked.

a book that is in the same league! I have returned more than a few books for "false advertising " by claiming that their book compares to GILLIAN FLYNN and GIRL ON THE TRAIN.
It became my pet peeve.
This book was a "one sitting" read for me.

Interesting clever twists

Started off a tad slow but unwound into a story far different than normal. Love the ending; could easily be picked back up and continued. Makes you imagine several possible endings!
