Fay Leary is taking her boys, Rupert and Oliver, on a month-long vacation to Corfu, but the trip definitely doesn't start off smoothly. Their flight is delayed for more than six hours, which complicates everything. Initially, they were scheduled to arrive in the afternoon, which would have given her enough time to find a place to stay. Due to the flight delay, they don't arrive until after one in the morning, and have no reservations to stay at a hotel. A chance encounter with a man at the airport (one she secretly names 'Bull-man') leads them to find lodging at a place called The Twins' House. Fay is pleasantly surprised with their accommodations, especially since it is everything she could have hoped for. As Fay begins to explore the house, she sees paintings that refer to mythology and tries to shake off the feeling that the paintings are trying to tell her something. She quickly brushes off her uneasiness and goes on with her day. Without revealing the details, I will say this does play a role in the story.
As the story continues, Fay and the children fall into a daily routine, and while the boys enjoy swimming, she spends her time lying in the sunlight, reflecting on her life. So much is revealed through Fay's reflections, and this is when the story becomes truly captivating. In addition to her story being revealed, she also meets a man named Aaron, and that is when the story takes a different and unexpected turn.
I really don't want to reveal any spoilers, but will say this is a book worth reading. Fay is a woman trying to heal, in more ways than one. The character development is wonderfully written and the colorful cast of characters in the book add to the mystery of the story. The author brilliantly tells the story, using vivid description, humor and emotion, all which help to imagine the story while reading it. There are unexpected twists through the story, and that definitely will keep you guessing. Overall this is just a great read and also one I would recommend.
I received a digital copy from Endeavour Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
