Every Secret Thing by Rachel Crowther
This is such a wonderful page-turner of a book, whenever there are secrets to be revealed in a story you know that each page will bring more information and build into a crescendo of shocks and surprises. As these five old friends are reunited after 20 years, their pasts come back to haunt them – there are some things you just can’t forgive and forget.
The book has a wonderful pace and all the characters are all so beautifully human you can sympathise with them all in different ways, they are flawed and real which I find much more engaging. As I once lived in Cambridge I also enjoyed the descriptions of the city and felt very at home in the book. As the story builds it really does become a book you need to finish, and I read it over night!
Unlike so many modern novels this also has a satisfying ending, there is a sense of completion and although the story has stayed with me, I do feel my questions were answered.
