Three children walked away from the cottages on the edge of town toward Berwick Waters. Later that day, only two of them came back. . . .    Alice Tully knows exactly what happened that spring day six years ago, though it's still hard for her to believe it. She'll never be able to forget, even though she's trying to lead a normal life--she has a job, friends, and a boyfriend whom she adores. But Alice's past is dangerous, and violent, and sad . . . and it's about to rip her new life apart.

This was an interesting book. The story line was different to any other book I have read. The start and the end was the most exciting bit. I thought the middle was a bit boring but you still need the middle to keep the story. If you are into a bit of killing, loss and heart break this is the perfect book for you. There is a lot more emotion than there is action.
