I always draw to family drama because a part of me wanting to find a way out in a solution that I couldn’t think of my own. It makes me realize that the characters are teaching me something valuable -the do and don’t, always take note of the consequences of my actions towards others. As once things are done, there’s no away we can amend it and discard the matter. And you’ll always live with the regrets all your life. Until it breaks you to pieces.
What the book taught me is to never let anger blinds you. And also we should keep it in mind that no children are entitled to their parent’s past mistakes. From unable to face the music, awful conduct was made that only invite more destruction thinking that revenge is the way to make themself feel better. But the truth it’s not going to end well.
I wish one of the characters didn’t go to that miserable road while thinking of their own tragic destiny. And it’s really heartbreaking to see what had become.
Despite being less of a thriller and I manage to crack the code really early, still, I enjoy finding out the source of every lies. It’s really such a sorrowful novel in finding the truth of your family roots that going to make you eager for more.
Thank you Netgalley and Bookouture for allowing me to read this Advance Reader Copy.
