My Thoughts

4.5/5 Stars

Firstly as this book is set in Iceland, somewhere I long to visit, it got me so excited, I can transport to Iceland through a book? Perfect, it did just that, I felt as though I was there. Caroline’s writing is absolutely amazing, I just fell in love with the landscape she painted in my head, and the characters in the book {I didn’t quite want it to end ..}.

The main characters include Rosa and Jon, Rosa marries Jon whom is a wealthy man to help provide for her ailing mother. As she moves Rosa finds herself feeling isolated and scared, she discovers that her husband Jon recently buried his previous wife in the middle of the night .. She wonders what he could be hiding and longs to discover the truth .. As the story unravels you learn more about Jon and his past. It’s a truly gripping dark story, one that I won’t forget for a while ..

.. Also, quickly, the cover of the book is utterly stunning, I can’t get enough of it, such a beautiful illustration.
