The Split by Sharon Bolton

A great read! Set primarily in the harsh Antartic landscape on the island of South Georgia, the setting really adds atmosphere to a deeply psychological story. Felicity is the main character, on the run from her abusive husband, working and hiding in the icy wastelands of Antartic, and fearful of discovery. We begin at the end of her story and then, through a series of flashbacks to her life before, gradually Felicity’s secrets are uncovered until we burst upon a tense finale right back where we started!
I have never read any books by Sharon J. Bolton before, and having read ‘The Split,’ I am now asking myself why???
I give this book 4 stars.
