Another fabulous book by CL Taylor. After feel very satisfied after reading the Missing by miss Taylor, I went on to buying The Escape. Again, I was so indulged I read it within three days ( even though i was commuting to London all week)
This story is about a mother who suffers with agoraphobia. Her and her daughter have been threatened. She feels she has no choice but to keep running.
Like her other books, there are lots of characters introduced and you are never sure who to trust. I honestly didn’t know who to trust and when the ending plot was reviled I was shocked. I had some stages where I doubted certain characters and then next I would love them again.
I have noticed the trend in C L Taylor’s book of the interest of phycology and this is an exciting element. A book written in third person, with someone who is having mental health issues takes you on a brand new type of journey. The book is very well written, and really allows you take on this persons character.
The daughter is a lovable character, and I was hoping through your the book she would be safe.
This character takes you on an emotional journey of hope, grief and disappointment.
The book is set in a number of places including Ireland. I loved the little touches, like she was eating “tayto crisps” for me this was something to relate too.
I felt I was intrigued from the first page to the very last. I felt eager to understand why this was happening to them and the ending was very interesting.
Once again, I am looking forward to reading her next book.
