One day 10 year old Carmel loses her 3 year old sister Polly at a fair. This is the story of how Carmel copes with the guilt. But this story is so much more. It is a heart-tugger, but not over the top.
I did find bits painful to read as it must be so, so hard not knowing what happened. For all the sadness in it, it is not a horrid story. It is very well written and I will say un-put-downable as I read most of it on one wet Sunday.
After reading the first few chapters, I so wanted to go straight to the end to see if it was a happy ending as I didn't know if I could bear it if it wasn't. I resisted and was so glad I did.
This is definitely a book I would recommend to everyone. I loved it.
