By Mrs. A. C. Edgerton
A psychological thriller, this is a wonderfully 'easy read' - well written without dense prose that has you thinking 'what is the author trying to say here'. So in that sense it is perfect for the summer holidays. The story revolves around the central character, Lily, who discovers her perfect marriage is a sham. There is some great dialogue, and moments of inciteful comment on friendship and marriage. For example, we think we know and trust those closest to us, but when that trust is put into doubt, our world is turned upside down and we begin to question everything and everyone. I couldn't put this book down. From the first page I was hooked needing to discover 'who dunnit' - I read it in 3 days - I kept sneaking off to read another chapter.

When a mother's love is not enough ...
She loved him. She married him. She thought she knew him ...
5.0 out of 5 stars Fiona Cane's best book so far 14 Aug 2013
I think Fiona Cane is really beginning to find her feet as a storyteller: the writing feels more relaxed and 'comfortable in its skin'; the characterisation and dialogue more believable and affecting. The result is a thoroughly compelling and enjoyable read as well as a gripping storyline of school-gate murder madness and teenage angst which I could easily see translated into a film/TV drama. A terrific book.
"A hundred metres below waves break over the rocks and pebbles with barely a murmur. Birds on the wing, no bigger than insects, circle the lighthouse. It is a long, long way to fall. Giddy, light-headed, my knees buckle."
If you've ever been intimidated at the school gate, if you've been bereaved, given up the job of your dreams to look after your children, struggled to bring up a rebellious teenager, had a child who's been the victim of cyberbullying, or lost your Faith, then The Gate is the book for you.
