Book description
Justine Catrell has a terrible secret that she is hiding, she has left her husband, changed her name and moved half way across the world to start a new life with her 4 year old daughter Lula. The circumstances that led her to move from England, and from her husband Matt and two older children Abby and Ben, are shrouded in secrecy. Also running through the book is the story of Justine’s grandmother and the way their lives parallel.

No place to hide flicks between justine’s past life in England to her present life in a small American town. Justine’s appears to have the perfect life in England, a great job, the house of her dreams and a family whom she adores, but things aren’t the way that seem. I found this book very slow to get started, the first third especially, but once you get past that, it’s heartbreaking.

Susan Lewis manages to deliver a very powerful and disturbing story, which unfortunately is very believable. It difficult to review this book without giving away spoilers, due to the nature of the book. I felt the story of Justine’s grandmother, wasn’t really needed even though their life’s led similar paths it didn’t really add to the story. Susan Lewis portrayed her characters very well, and the way they dealt with the fallout after was very believable. I felt emotional drained after finishing this book and some readers may find the content of this book distressing and for that reason I give it 4 stars
