The Thread That Binds Us
Have you ever had a secret that you cannot tell anyone
- even your closest friend? Susan’s childhood was full of secrets - ‘Don’t tell
anyone,’ was her mother’s favourite phrase. So when she discovers that her
father had had an illegitimate child, called Michael, she instinctively knows
she can’t tell anyone.
But Susan isn’t a child anymore - she is a middle-aged
woman who is keeping secrets from her husband in her search to find her
half-brother. The need to know more about Michael becomes an obsession and she
soon becomes enmeshed in a web of lies and deceit as she tries to track him
When she and Michael finally meet, Susan is faced with a dilemma - she can walk away and forget about him or she can tell her family and face the consequences.
'...As for the plot - it is as exciting and page-turning as any Murder
Mystery or Psychological Thriller. And just when you think you have sussed out
everything - there is some new discovery or you are confronted by another
viewpoint on a complicated situation…
A family secret can have as much impact as a dastardly crime and this
one has many layers and unpredictable surprises.’
The Scottish author,
Joan Fallon, began her career as a writer after moving to Spain at the start of
the new millennium; her first published work was a social history, 'Daughters
of Spain', inspired by the women she met in her new home. The research for this
book in turn encouraged her to write the following two novels: 'Spanish
Lavender', which is set in Malaga during the early years of the Civil War and
'The House on the Beach', the story of two young women growing up in Franco's
Spain. Her subsequent novels have grown out of her experiences living and
working in Spain.
