Everyone is obsessed with the children who spent years decaying in the attic as Corinne put her own convenience ahead of theirs. They were a problem that no one seemed to care about. This is a good tale of choices, consequences and inappropriate conversations. Everyone needs a personal growth plan and everyone needs to change elements of their thinking and behaviour.
Like in the TV movie, the sexual encounter between Cathy and Christopher is softened and make consensual. Toned down and prettified so no-one has to deal with the ugly reality. He choose to do wrong and yet got away with his sexually maladaptive behaviour. This was an enjoyable read with an extreme dramatic reveal on the final page.
“It wasn’t going to end well.”
“Corinne is probably still in the loony bin.”
“His lost brother and sisters.”
