I really enjoyed Jane Corry's previous books – My Husband's Wife, The Dead Ex and Blood Sisters – she has a unique talent for presenting darker themes of society – prison and homelessness – in the case of I Looked Away, and exposing humanity's flaws.
I Looked Wway is told from two perspectives:
Ellie – then and now – then, when she was a young girl and her little brother was involved in an accident. And now – when her young grandson is also at risk.
Jo – a middle class woman who has found herself homeless and tries to navigate living on the streets.
Beautifully told, the heartache and heartbreak endured by Ellie throughout her life was foremost, woven with the grief was the foundation for this twisty thriller.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Thank you so much the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary electronic copy in return for an honest review.
