I have just finished reading After Anna by Alex Lake and because it was such a brilliant read I am giving away my copy to one of my beautiful blog readers.
Have you ever lost your child, just for a split second and remember that feeling in the depth of your stomach when your heart stops beating and you struggle to breathe? That’s exactly how Julia Crowne felt when she was late to school to pick up her 5-year-old Anna to find the teachers had no clue where she was.
After Anna is a powerful read
The 5-year-old had vanished without a trace. The police have no leads and no clues.
To make things worse, the poor mother is attacked on Twitter as a worthless abuser who neglected her innocent child and is to blame for the abduction. The use of hashtags and the power of social media show how damaging this can be when the media delves into your life.
Her marriage was also on the rocks before the disappearance of her daughter and her husband also blames her.
The story is split into two parts – Before & After: because it’s after Anna returns that the story takes on a sinister twist.
I started reading this book on Monday and finished it today – it’s taken me 2 days as I was unable to put it down.
I really don’t want to spoil the story so I will remain tight-lipped but I know you will be as gripped as I was.
