The Daughter by Lucy Dawson
You lost your daughter. You will never forgive yourself. Now someone’s determined to make you pay… Seventeen years ago, something happened to Jess’s daughter Beth. The memory of it still makes her blood run cold. Jess has tried everything to make peace with that day, and the part she played in what happened. It was only a brief moment of desire… but she’ll pay for it with a lifetime of guilt.
To distance herself from the mistakes of the past, Jess has moved away and started over with her family. But when terrifying things begin happening in her new home, Jess knows that her past has finally caught up with her. Somebody feels Jess hasn’t paid enough, and is determined to make her suffer for the secrets she’s kept all these years.

A very heartwrenching story which almost had me in tears at one point. Being a parent is very difficult to begin with but to lose your daughter in a freak accident and then having to deal with other issues makes things even more hazardous to your life.
The main characters were wonderfully written showing great depth. It also was a bit freaky at times as you didn’t know where the Author was taking you.
While I did figure out who was behind the badness I also lovedseeing how is all unfolded as well as seeing the person responsible as a victim as well.
This book had such a great story with characters who were well developed you could just feel the emotions flying off the pages.
I would definitely read more from this author and really am looking forward to what she writes next.
