A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn’t have prevented it. Could she?
In a split second, Jenna Gray’s world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever.
Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . .
From page 2 of I Let You Go you know this is going to be a story that tugs at your heart. The build up is quick and heart-rending.
I Let You Go is as much about the Police investigation as it is about Jenna. Jenna’s recovery process is written as though it’s a light peeping from behind a dark cloud and Ray’s dedication in the case, along with Kate is something that is enlightening. Ray is a good solid Detective with a conscience and a heart. The twist when it hits is absolutely phenomenal and I actually broke out in a sweat and was covered in goosebumps. The story takes a different turn and everything you have read before it changes the dynamic of the tale. And then another twist that just floors the reader, I realised at this point that I had been holding my breath and was gobsmacked by what I was reading. THEN the cruelty of the final twist is just heartbreaking, It really is quite brilliant.
Clare Mackintosh’s novel is a very emotional read, it is full of hope, friendship, trust and family. It also covers hate, manipulation and fear. It is a remarkable novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat and take you on an amazing nail-biting journey.
This novel is just one that I think any review cannot give it the commendation it truly deserves, it is one where the reader simply has to read it, Clare Mackintosh knows how to capture and enthrall a reader, she really is one of the best.
The Authors note is where all is explained and it was reading this I sobbed.
