Little White LiesLittle White Lies by Philippa East
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Emotionally taut, poignant and raw, Little White Lies is a beautiful thriller about the bitter cost of lies and the enduring quality of a mother’s love.

The story begins with what usually is the ending for most thrillers: a kidnapped child is returned. And so the story thoroughly and unflinchingly explores the emotions of that return: how do you reconnect with the child you once had; who is the girl in front of you now; and what should you really tell her about the day she disappeared?

Little White Lies is more than just a heart-thumping, racing thriller. It is a detailed exploration of a heart breaking and being pieced back together, as well as the consequences of guilt in the face of a mistake nobody was ever supposed to know.
