The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland


A chilling suspense story of wounded hearts and dark secrets.

For fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.

Washed up on the beach, she can’t remember who she is. She can’t even remember her name. Turns out, she has a perfect life – friends and family eager to fill in the blanks. But why are they lying to her? What don’t they want her to remember?

When you don’t even know who you are, how do you know who to trust?

A girl awakes to find herself on a beach, cold and wet with no knowledge of how she arrived there or who she is. Even the mirror is a stranger. She can’t remember anything about herself or her life at all. Slowly, like peeling the layers of an onion away, she is told things by family and friends- but are they and are they true? A deceitful “boyfriend” along with family who don’t know important things about her life make her suspicious and want to start again.

I couldn’t put this down and read it in 24 hours. This is a bewitching story where you feel so much empathy for Mia- a beautifully portrayed character and her situation. Excellent scenic descriptions bring the story to life on the page and in your mind’s eye. You have to keep turning to find out more!

A brilliant twist at the end (where else!) that I really didn’t see coming, in fact I got the “suspicious character” completely wrong. No spoilers but you won’t be disappointed- prepare for a surprise.

A wonderful, thrilling very enjoyable read. Thank you, Shalini Boland- you are on my “look out for the next book” list.
