ABOUT THE BOOK
Can you ever bury the past?
She'd recognised in him something of herself: that sense of not belonging, of secrets fiercely kept . . .
Five friends, newly graduated, travel together to the Lake District. Young and ambitious, they little imagine the events that will overtake them that fateful summer, tearing their fragile group apart.
Twenty years later, they return to the same spot, summoned by a mysterious bequest. It's not long before old friendships - and old romances - are re-kindled. But soon, too, rivalries begin to re-emerge and wounds are painfully reopened . . .
How long does it take for past sins to be forgiven? And can the things they destroy ever really be recovered?
First of all, I am so excited to be kicking off the blog tour for this compelling and unique tale about friendship and how the effects of our decisions can ripple through our lives for years to come.
Five completely different people from completely different backgrounds forge a strong friendship in Cambridge through the power of music and spend three years in their intellectual and spiritual world, closer than ever. But when they take a summer trip with their mentor Fay, it changes everything for each one of them, some more drastically than others. And their camaraderie and connection disappear on the wind.
Twenty years later and they are summoned back to that destination for a mysterious reason. As these strangers converge together in the place that changed them so drastically, will they finally find the answers that they have been searching for? Or by confronting each other again will it cause them to really look at the path that their own lives have taken in the aftermath of their actions all those years ago?
EVERY SECRET THING by Rachel Crowther is such a clever, beautifully descriptive story about the complexities of relationships, and how a simple choice can change the course of your life in ways that are unimaginable. The characters are all unique, quirky, and compelling in their own ways, and the pace of the story was perfect as the story jumped from past to present effortlessly. The setting comes alive with breathtaking clarity, and I read this story in one sitting as I wanted a resolution for this magnetic group of people. The ending did leave me a little unsettled as I wanted to know more but that is also a sign of a great book too! EVERY SECRET THING by Rachel Crowther is a gripping read and I highly recommend it!
