    1 thought on “Cross My Heart”

    1. This is a wonderful piece of writing, which is effectively two stories: the 'before' story, and the 'after'. While reading the first half of this book I thought, this deserves five stars, easy. The characters and detail were brilliant. But I feel the second, 'after' story let the whole thing down. Such a shame. The child Grace and the adult Grace barely seemed connected. As for how the author dealt with Nan, well, I won't go there. Needless to say, I was far from satisfied.

    2. A really good read, easy going and kept my interest in the two main characters. Interesting how the mind can help us to play tricks on ourselves and make us believe anything. A sense of injustice brought about by naivety and massive bad parenting. I wanted to shake her to wake her up. The final chapter completely unnecessary as i had worked that twist out much earlier! A good bookclub choice cant wait to discuss it with the girls.

    3. This book for me was slow to start but by the end I did enjoy it ths second part more then the first part. The part that I thought I could of done with more of what went on was what happened in the story before nan died but in all quite enjoyed it

    4. I really like this story. I was a bit worried about how it would turn out during the first half, but couldn't put it down once their paths began to intertwine.

    5. Too many books with this title. This one is a real treat. A girl who tells lies. So good I bought a copy. (I usually use the library)
