The Boy That Never Was by Karen Perry

The Boy That Never WasThe Boy That Never Was by Karen Perry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Excellent! What more can I say that hasn't already been covered by other reviewers!

This story is told from the angle of Robyn and Harry.

Dillon their only son was taken from them one night when Harry was lapse. Harry is tormented by not only the loss of his son but by his action that night, just one little slip.

Robyn doesn't seem to blame him for the loss. Maybe its the secrets. But there are a couple of secrets within this book.

Harry is tormented by the loss of his only son, he paints, he's an artists and he paints several paintings of his son as he imagines him growing up and what he would look like.

One day Harry thinks he spots Dillon. Harry is on a steady decline to a mental breakdown. I wasn't sure if it was that or.....
but it came to light, Harry's mind was all over the place.

I won't give away anymore as you need to read it.

This is the third book in the past 2 weeks that have brought tears to my eyes and me hugging my Kindle.

My hat goes off to this authors, wonderful job!

**I was granted this to read by Penguin Books (UK) via Net Galley who I thank very much and the author **

You were loved and lost - then you came back . . .

Five years ago, three-year-old Dillon disappeared. For his father Harry - who left him alone for ten crucial minutes - it was an unforgivable lapse. Yet Dillon's mother Robyn has never blamed her husband: her own secret guilt is burden enough.

Now they're trying to move on, returning home to Dublin to make a fresh start.

But their lives are turned upside down the day Harry sees an eight-year-old boy in the crowd. A boy Harry is convinced is Dillon. But the boy vanishes before he can do anything about it.

What Harry thought he saw quickly plunges their marriage into a spiral of crazed obsession and broken trust, uncovering deceits and shameful secrets. Everything Robyn and Harry ever believed in one another is cast into doubt.

And at the centre of it all is the boy that never was .
