My Review: I read and loved Dear Thing years ago but since then I have moved on to dark psychological thrillers as my go to genre. I started reading this as a break from all the thrillers and was immediately gripped and transported into the world of Jo, Honor and Lydia. 3 generations of the same family forced to live together with their secrets and fears. Julie Cohen has an incredible talent for bringing these characters to life and making you care and believe in each one. A truly heartwarming book which I highly recommend and reminds me to step away from the darkside more often
