ABOUT THIS BOOK
You trust your family. They love you. Don't they?
When 17-year-old Eva Olsen awakes after a horrific accident that has left her bedbound, her parents are right by her side. Caring and kind, they watch over her night and day in the attic room of their family home in the forests of Norway.
But the accident has left Eva without her most recent memories. And someone isn't telling her the truth. As secrets from the night of the accident begin to surface, Eva realises - she has to escape her parents' house and discover the truth. But what if someone doesn't want her to find it?
Imagine at 17 waking up in a dark room, covered in scars, and the door is locked. Terrifying, right? Well, this is exactly the situation that Eva Olsen finds herself in, in the LAKE CHILD by Isabel Ashdown, and what follows next is a complicated tale of unravelling secrets, betrayals, heartache, and hope in this excellent psychological thriller.
Eva's parents have her under lock and key in the attic room ever since she returned home from the hospital after an awful accident where the culprit was never found. They won't let her best friends visit her and they are definitely hiding something from her. But what? Eva has always had a wonderful relationship with her parents but something isn't right. If only she could remember what happened, maybe it would hold the key to the mystery. But Eva is a very determined young woman who will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth, even if that truth could destroy everything that she has ever known.
Compelling, shocking, and completely unputdownable, LAKE CHILD by Isabel Ashdown is everything you want in a thriller and more. There is confusion, lies, twists, and turns that will leave you speechless, and a main character that you really care about and connect with. I don't want to give too much away because it would ruin so many elements of this story but suffice it to say there are so many things that you will just not see coming!
LAKE CHILD by Isabel Ashdown is superb and I cannot help but think it would make a perfect tv drama, and I cannot wait to read more from this fantastic author.
Dark, compelling and beautifully twisty ... have you read Isabel yet? In 2018, BEAUTIFUL LIARS shot to #3 in Amazon UK's Hot New Psychological Thriller Releases, while LITTLE SISTER was shortlisted in the 2018 Dead Good Reader Awards. Her next novel is LAKE CHILD, a dark and haunting thriller set in a remote valley town in the heart of Norway's ancient fjords (out September 2019).
Isabel Ashdown was born in London and grew up on the Sussex coast.
