From the outcome of a tv programme to what they'll be having for dessert that evening, Ruth can see them coming. She can predict them so accurately her brother and sister declare that she must be psychic. Ruth doesn't believe them, she just can't understand how they don't see the clues for themselves. It all begins as Ruth and her family move into a new home immediately following the birth of her new baby brother. It's New Year's Eve and as the snow blankets the street in white Ruth knows something bad will happen this year, something really bad.

    Set in 1930’s Paris this book tells a story of the deceit and passion for everything haute couture. Alix has a dream to become the world’s most renowned designer but her life has other ideas and Alix does not end up where you initially think she will.

    When I first received this book my first thought was ‘I know nothing about fashion’ and to be honest I dreaded flicking through the pages and actually reading the book. Well, a few days later I headed off on my holiday, ‘ripped the plaster off’ and started to read the book. From there I was hooked. I ignored my husband and children for two days and followed Alix Gower’s life adventure.

    A review is supposed to be a balanced report of positives and negatives about a book, the problem is I'm struggling trying to find anything positive to say about this one.


    The story hinges around Chrissie, a young female medic who wants to succeed. Maddy, the newly married, junior officers wife. Maddy is an Oxford graduate who doesn't know a thing about army life and is so green around the gills that it's painful. Her life is turned upside down by a new baby suffering with colic and a husband who takes his sport and the army more seriously than his family. Finally we have Jenna, the blonde bimbo, white stiletto wearing and apparently, the archetypal soldiers wife, who only married her husband for the ... well it wasn't the quarter, but that's another story.

    This book is dedicated to the author’s grandchildren, I am guessing it is a story she developed for them and at some point some one has said ‘What a good story you should get that published’

    This is a challenging read, a psychological thriller, a first novel written by a clinical psychologist. So, knowing little about the subject myself, I assume it's a trustworthy account of aspects of psychotherapy. It's a complex story, involving flashbacks, plus action in the present is occurring in two places.
