Rating: 4 STARS
Three guys in their thirties have something in common. Their children all go to the same school. One day a tragic event leads to them having to deal with a lurking aftermath which draws them into each other’s lives and causes them to rethink their attitudes to just about everything. The children tell the second part of this story, ten years after the initial events. The dust seems to have settled until one of them uncovers information that throws everything back into chaos. The third part… well that will have to wait.
This was a really short and enjoyable novella. We follow the perspectives of three fathers for the first part of the book as their kids are going through primary school and let me tell you shit hits the fan. We then follow the perspective of the boys ten years later after everything happens and we see how the past has effected them and part three is a very short perspective of well you guessed it an anxious ghost!
I really enjoyed seeing all of the perspectives and LOVED the characters within this story. I loved this novella and you MUST give this short book a try for a truly heartbreaking, heart filled and mysterious stories
