Abuse. Clare Mackintosh grabbed me from page one of novel titled, I Let You Go. Five-year-old Jacob Jordon let go of his mother’s hand for just a second on a Bristol street in front of their home, and dies at the hand of a hit and run driver. The pace remains fast through the multiple narrators, as Mackintosh draws us into understanding of victims and the consequences of abuse. I was surprised by certain plot twists, and that added to my reading pleasure. Readers who enjoy psychological fiction are those most likely to enjoy reading this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
