One night changes her life forever... But the past won't let her go...
Harriet is trapped in an unhappy marriage to her abusive husband, Dan. She dreams of a life where she does not have to live in constant fear. One night, she finally summons the courage and makes the life-changing decision to leave him behind for good. She leaves with only a suitcase and a closely-guarded box she is terrified of anyone discovering...
Eighteen-months on, Harriet has her freedom. Or does she? She is living her lifelong dream of running a successful art gallery. She should be happy, but things are not what they appear. Her perfect world is plagued by crippling anxiety and disturbing nightmares. Dark secrets from her past threaten to tear her new world apart.
Why is she so terrified of her own family finding her? Can she ever truly escape the past?
Soon, Harriet will learn that running from her worst fears is a dangerous mistake and one that will have deadly consequences.
In Her Footsteps is a gripping psychological thriller with a breathtaking twist. Perfect for fans of Clare Mackintosh, K.L. Slater, Lisa Hall, Sue Fortin and Laura Marshall.

Sophie has lived across the hall from Dan and Harriet for a little while. She noticed Harriet come home with Dan and her lip is bleeding profusely. Dan tells her some half cocked story about how clumsy Harriet is and just sweet talks Sophie. That night Sophie watches as Harriet leaves with a suitcase and doesn't understand how she could leave a sweet and loving man.
Read this book to find out everything that happens next. You will not be disappointed, but be prepared for a wild rollercoaster ride!
The reader will make a good decision in purchasing this novel.

Andrew was too nice, too good to be true and I didn't warm to him at all - plus openly courting a woman over the road from your ex-wife's shop was cruel, particularly as she obviously still held a torch for him. Dan the villain was like a cartoon character, and I'm not downplaying domestic violence here.
I felt the final chapter was too rushed and it was as if the writer got bored of her story and wanted to wrap it up as quickly as possible with so much left unexplained.
However, I will be reading more by Ruth, in the hope that I can leave a more favourable review next time.
The only problem with leaving your past behind, you never really can. Harriet is happy and settled in her new life but there is that constant fear that her past will catch back up with her. Her paranoia starts to affect her new life in lots of ways and sadly they arn't for the better.
There is a build up of suspense and tension right from the off with this story. It's hard for me to say too much as I don't want to give any of the plot away and ruin any surprises for new readers. There is definitely without a doubt an unexpected twist that I would never have guessed though I have to say there were some things that puzzled me prior to it that suddenly made sense.
In Her Foosteps had me hooked from start to finish. Perfect read for lovers of psychological thrillers.
Eighteen months on Harriet has her freedom. Or does she? She is running a successful art gallery. Her perfect world is plagued by panic attacks and awful nightmares. The dark secrets from her past threaten to tear her new world apart. Why is she scared of her family finding her? Soon she will learn that running from her worst fears is a dangerous mistake and one that will have deadly consequences.
A good storyline and starts off well. In the middle part however, it gets boring and slows down a lot. It picks up again towards the end but then I felt it was rushed and left me with a lot of answered questions.
A great debut novel. I'll definately watch out for more from Ruth Harrow in the future.
