I look down at her, lying fast asleep – always my little girl, and so beautiful. She gives a low moan as her head turns restlessly on the pillow. It reminds me of the soft growl of a cornered animal. Where is my poor child? What is she dreaming?
People always notice my daughter, Isobel. How could they not? Exquisite… until she speaks.
An unsettling, little-girl voice, exactly like a child’s, but from the mouth of a full-grown woman. Izzie might look grown-up, but inside she’s trapped. I know why my daughter is the way she is. There’s nothing I could have done to save her… is there?
An unputdownable psychological thriller about families and secrets.

It was utterly compelling. The characters perfectly constructed, the secrets brilliantly revealed. An excellent read,perfect for these cold, dark evenings!’ (Vikki Patis, author of The Diary, 5 stars)
‘The Memory dives right in… I’m very impressed with Lucy Dawson’s books… I had no idea where things were going and no idea how it would all end. There are a couple of big surprises and at least one genuinely chilling scene… Highly recommended and I can’t wait to see what Lucy Dawson does next.’ (Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars)
