Leah Mills lives a life of a fugitive – kept on the run by one terrible day from her past. It is a lonely life, without a social life or friends until – longing for a connection – she meets Julian. For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life.
Then, on the twentieth anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed the life Leah has created, but is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?
When I first picked up The Girl with no past, I was expecting it to be a mediocre read, but I was wrong, it’s a brilliant read. From the very first page we learn Leah is hiding from her past. Kathryn Croft the author manage to tantalise the reader with glimpses of Leah’s past by moving from the present to the past throughout the book. All the way through I kept trying to guess what secret Leah was hiding, and I must say I never got close. As the girl with no past progresses the surprises keep coming, come the last half I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.
Kathryn is a new author to me and I found myself impressed with her style of writing,she was able to keep up the tension throughout the book. The girl with no past has many themes running through it secrets, friendships, karma and most importantly that the past is always there, however well you think its buried. I gave this book 5 stars, as it has to be one of the best books I’ve read this year well written, with a great plot, that keeps you riveted throughout. Many thanks to Netgalley for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
