When a barrier between truth and illusion grows stronger, a family’s trust crumbles in this arresting short story by the number one New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10.

Leah has spent her formative years isolated on a remote island with her family. But their quiet existence, far from the devastated mainland, is cracking. Father, sensing a coming threat, demands that a wall be built. As the stone blockade rises, Father’s paranoia escalates. So does Leah’s dread that the violence the family left behind has found its way to their sanctuary.

Review –

The synopsis didn’t give away much but I was expecting some psychological suspense/mystery. Instead I got some kind of dystopian tale (at least at first) so far from everything I’ve read from this author I’m not sure I liked it much. The plot was pretty far fetched and the characters were not very well fleshed out, although this, being only 57 minutes long in audio, I guess I shouldn’t have expected very much. I hope the rest of the stories in the Hush Series are better!
