A missing girl.
Threatening notes.
Sinister strangers.
Olivia’s idyllic family life in a Swiss mountain village is falling apart. She thought she’d managed to escape the past, but it’s coming back to haunt her.
Has somebody discovered her secret – why she had to leave Scotland more than ten years ago?
What is her connection to Marie, a lonely schoolgirl in a Yorkshire seaside town, and Lucy, a student at a Scottish university?
A story of the shadows of the past, the uncertainties of the present and how you can never really know anybody.


this is Alison’s second book, a fractured winter is brillantly written and deserves the 5 stars and i loved the cover to this book. Alison’s writing is superb and it has you gripped and hooked from the beginning its a right page turner,

Olivia and her family live near lake Zug in Switzerland, she married to christian and they have 2 kids together and Julian is christian’s stepson,christian also works as a teacher at Julian’s school, Julian starts working part time and Olivia and Julian are unsure about who this person is until Olivia meets the person………

Olivia as a past that she thought she had escaped from, she as secrets she doesn’t want anyone finding out the reason why she moved out of Scotland 11 years ago.
in parts of the book it goes back to her past to tell you about what happened and gives you more of an idea of what what her secret is………..
