About the book
What if your child was accused of mass murder? When the local church is razed to the ground, dozens of trapped children manage to escape – many helped by fifteen-year-old Andy Lockwood. Born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Andy is more like a little boy that a teenager, but in the eyes of the people he saved, he’s a hero. Laurel lost her son once through neglect and has spent the rest of her life determined to make up for her mistakes. Yet when suspicion of arson is cast upon Andy, Laurel must ask herself how well she really knows her son – and how far she’ll go to protect him.
Reviewed by Cliffhanger Reading Group:
Characterisation generally good. Felt the author had dipped into her casebook, rather to select people with problems. Plot rather unbelieveable in latter part of the book. None of our group felt inclined to read another Diane Chamberlain book.
