    I’m reading The Wild Silence at the moment; it’s quite a heavy, traumatic read at the minute and we’re over half-way through. I must get The Heath for the same best friend I’m reading Wild Silence with, as she often walks there.

      They have not had the easiest of lives since they were stitched up by their so-called friend.
