This is the first book I have read by Louise Jensen but it won’t be the last. This is how a psychological thriller should be; an emotional journey with twists and turns you cannot predict,even if you think you can. Curiosity and fear drives you to read just one more chapter.
The Gift follows the story of Jenna, who after receiving a heart transplant from Callie, begins to remember things she shouldn’t. Things only Callie knew and when Jenna’s dreams are saying Callie’s death was not how it first appeared, she has no choice but to listen.
I have read about cellular memory before in Cecelia Ahern’s light hearted ‘Thanks for the Memory’ and Jodi Picoult’s ‘Change of Heart’ touched the topic slightly but this is a different take on it. It is an intriguing subject you can’t help wanting to know more about.
This is a book to read in one sitting if you can, with no distractions apart from a cup of tea because once you start you will not want to put it down.
I am now looking forward to reading Louise Jensen’s new release ‘The Surrogate’.
Have you read it? What did you think?
