I have read this story while the caravan is parked at Woodgate Beach (located in the Bundaberg area (QLD). The caravan park is across the road from a beautiful beach with great walking paths that afford me the opportunity to take a break from reading and walk 4 to 5 klm parallel to the beach. Anyway, back to my review of this book…
I have read and enjoyed Sara Foster’s work before. She’s a writer whose stories take readers on an emotional journey and makes them think about their own lives. All That Is Lost Between Us demonstrates how a family can become so dysfunctional that they totally miss any opportunity to support each other, therefore finding themselves dealing with their own issues in isolation.
Seventeen-year-old Georgia is showing signs of discontent. She has a secret she cannot tell anyone. Even her mother who councils kids at the school is unable to communicate with Georgia and when the brother starts snooping in Georgia’s room the secret has the potential to go viral, ruining many lives in the process.
Georgia’s father has his share of problems—most of his own making–that distances him from his family at the time they need him the most.
The big question you, as the reader, will ask is: is it possible for the Turner family to rise above the lies they have told to betray or protect one another, in order to fight for what matters most of all.
The answer is, of course, a spoiler so I won’t say. However, I will say that this book is an excellent read with an authentic plot that will have you believe All That Is Lost Between Us is the real-life plight of the Turner family. You may even find yourself thinking about your own family.
Set against the stark, rugged beauty of England’s Lake District, All That is Lost Between Us is a timeless thriller with a modern twist.
