Some houses have their secrets. But so do some people . . .
Abandoned as a baby in the hallway of a shared house in London, Marina has never known her parents, and the circumstances of her birth still remain a mystery.
Now an adult, Marina has returned to the house where it all started, determined to find out who she really is. But the walls of this house hold more than memories, and Marina’s reappearance hasn’t gone unnoticed by the other tenants.
Someone is watching Marina. Someone who knows the truth . . .
The house is still, like a crypt.

This is a new author for me. The Hiding Place is a terrific read and I will check out more of her work. I loved the way the story switches between Connie in 1964 and Martina in 1992. I read a lot of books that uses this structure and it’s definitely my favourite method of storytelling. I loved the way both stories are just revealed in small chunks, urging you to read on to see it all come together. I got caught up in both stories and didn’t want to stop reading. The Hiding Place packs and emotional punch.
