A secret is a lie in the making.
A charming divorcee and his young daughter. The promise of a new life – together as a family, in an apartment in a historic building. A fresh start – or the key to a nightmare?
Who will Willow believe – a young offender, or the love of her life?
Page-turning and emotional, Willow Weeps is the gripping new thriller from the author of Rachel’s Garden and The Entrepreneur.
Willow Weeps by Louise Worthington is one of those reads where it is better to take your time, rather than fly through. There is a lot going on here, and I think it would be a disservice to the novel, to not fully digest what was being presented to me. So, I forced myself to slow down, and I ended up enjoying it quite a bit.
This book delves into heavy topics such as abuse and mental health. I would say this is probably not for the faint of heart because some of it was difficult to read. With the addition of the supernatural elements, at first, this story felt a bit disconjointed, but again, slowing down, and really understanding what was happening, fixed that issue for me.
The descriptive language in this book is beautiful. This author paints pictures with her words. Each character feels developed and seems to have their own voice, as well.
I enjoyed Willow Weeps and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.

Born in Cheshire, England, Louise studied literature at the University of Essex. As a teenager she read until the small hours, enjoying the darker worlds conjured by Stephen King and Daphne du Maurier.
Louise is the author of the bestseller, Rachel’s Garden, another psychological thriller and Distorted Days which Kirkus Review described as ‘a formidable work.’ Her chilling blend of the lyrical and the dark is themost gripping in her thrillers and horror.
