In the summer of 1999, Kit and Laura travel to a festival in Cornwall to see a total eclipse of the sun. Kit is an eclipse chaser; Laura has never seen one before. Young and in love, they are certain this will be the first of many they'll share.
But in the hushed moments after the shadow passes, Laura interrupts a man and a woman. She knows that she saw something terrible. The man denies it. It is her word against his.
The victim seems grateful. Months later, she turns up on their doorstep like a lonely stray. But as her gratitude takes a twisted turn, Laura begins to wonder--did she trust the wrong person?
15 years later, Kit and Laura married are living under new names and completely off the digital grid: no Facebook, only rudimentary cell phones, not in any directories. But as the truth catches up to them, they realize they can no longer keep the past in the past.
From Erin Kelly, queen of the killer twist, He Said/She Said is a gripping tale of the lies we tell to save ourselves, the truths we cannot admit, and how far we will go to make others believe our side of the story.
This is a strong contender for my favorite book of the year. Full stop. Kit and Laura are eclipse
chasers. They travel the world, taking part in eclipse-viewing festivals, seeking out the moment
of the totality - when the moon completely covers the sun. It’s in the moments immediately
following the totality in Cornwall, 1999, that they witness a man assaulting a woman. In that
moment, they call for help, become witnesses for the woman, and in future years they help her
in the legal battles against her assailant. Now, 15 years later, Kit and Laura are living in hiding -
with assumed names, and running from their past. As time has gone by, Kit and Laura wonder if
they trusted the right person. It was her word against his… Told in alternating voices between
Kit and Laura, present and past, this slow burn of a thriller is an exquisitely compelling and well-
written read. My highest recommendation! Also recommended by Sally and Brenda! - McKenna
