“Put me out with the bins,” he said, regularly. Well, Sally didn’t know that he didn’t actually mean it. When her ill father doesn’t wake one morning Sally did just that. But then she remembered her beloved father incinerated organic trash instead of waiting for it to be picked up, so she quietly made a fire in the back field and proceeded to burn his body. It didn’t take long for her small Irish village to catch wind of her actions and the local police to knock at the door. Sally Diamond who is painfully honest and literal answered their questions with the help of Angela, a family friend and physician who worked very closely to her mother. After this stressful ordeal Angela is determined to get Sally out in the world. She struggles socially, with noise levels and crowds. Her father, a former psychiatrist believed she could choose isolation and rarely forced Sally out of her comfort box. As a lovely woman now at 43 with both parents deceased it is time for Sally to finally overcome her fears and put her smarts and talents to use. One day as she is just beginning to progress with therapy Sally receives a package and note from a stranger on the other side of the world. After all these years the truth of Sally’s childhood comes out of the dark shadows and she must decide who she loves, needs and most importantly - who she can trust. There is so much more to this compelling fast paced psycho thriller. It is hard to say more without giving away spoilers! A must read written by an incredible Irish writer. This is undoubtedly FIVE STARS!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
