To nurse Leah Smith, no matter what, all offenders are patients first and foremost. When Leah is appointed as nurse to Isabel Fielding, she is determined to remain professional despite the shocking crime Isabel allegedly committed in her past.Seven years ago, six-year-old Maisie Earnshaw was found face down in a duck pond, her body mutilated. Isabel--at age fourteen, found covered in Maisie's blood--was convicted of murder.As Leah spends time with Isabel, she comes to know her as a young woman with a sweet, gentle nature, someone she could never see as a murderer. Leah begins to suspect members of the Fielding family of framing Isabel as a young girl, and she's not the only one. True crime blogger James Gorden thinks Isabel is innocent too.But is Leah letting her own troubled past taint her judgement as she grows closer to her patient? Or has a young woman been unjustly robbed of her childhood?"Suspenseful and terrifying, I was literally reading through my fingers at some points. If you want an unputdownable book that will give you chills, look no further." - Shalini Boland, author of The Secret Mother...

    WOW! I loved this book. So many emotions happening all at once... very hard to put down.Without giving too much away the characters had me fooled! Nothing is what it seems, you need to keep reading ...just one more chapter....Leah Smith starts her new job at high-security psychiatric facility of Crowmont Hospital. Here one of her patients is Isabel Fielding who is accused of murdering a 6 year old 7 years ago. Leah starts to believe that Isabel is innocent.Such a big fan of Sarah Denzil, all of her books are page turning and addictive. They all have very stronger and believable characters. Highly Reccommended.

    Great book shame about the ending.This is the first book I have read since James Herbert's The Rats, back when I was a teenager, that really gave me chills. Its rare to find a story that gets a grip on the fear circuits, but this one did.The question of did she/didnt she, remained throughout, added to which are some really clever and unexpected twists and this book was really on my favourites list. Unfortunately, the ending?????The ending seemed as though it was written by a different author. It was disjointed and lacked the real terror that the rest of the book had built up.It produced more questions than it answered, those that it did, just didn't fit and as a result really let the book down. I hate reviews that give spoilers and therefore cant go into detail without doing so. The story could easily turn in to a sequel and that would be not only a great opportunity to continue what is fundamentally a really riveting read that has plenty of scope for more, especially with the cliffhanger at the end, but would provide the author the opportunity to bring more cohesion to the ending.Its 4* not the 5* it should have been for the reasons I mentioned above. This is just my opinion and even so, I still recommend reading One For Sorrow and I will definitely be on the lookout for more by this author. X

    Psychological thriller...birds...psychiatric hospitalOne For Sorrow was a psychological suspenseful thriller set in a high-security psychiatric facility on Morton Ward. The story was character driven. Sarah had me guessing from the very beginning. The characters were developed with complex backstories which led you to speculate every action and behavior. Sarah helps manipulates your thoughts by feeding you every possible scenario. This method of execution was an easy way to create distractions by illustrating many variations of the truth. Sarah cleverly breaks down her characters defenses using weakness as a means to cloud their mind. Sarah’s writing was energetic making me question everything. Leah was a good nurse. She cared about her patients. She was able to see around their past crimes or their difficult upbringings, and talk to them like they’re human beings. Leah was healing from her own past circumstances while trying to help patients heal with theirs. After spending time with Isabel Leah grew curious about her case and began to investigate the circumstances. Every new source of information kept the suspense alive.

    I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good psychological thriller. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the main character was a bit annoying, some parts of her personality were a bit unrealistic to me. She was way to nice. Also would have like to see more character development in Tom and Seb. I look forward to reading more from Sarah Denzil!

    Really wonderful! I would love a sequel, but its damn near perfect without one. I loved the characters, and the twists felt as though they belonged in the narrative and weren't just gratuitous, that's a rare thing these days.Cannot wait to read Sarah Denzils back catalogue!

    A perfectly dark mystery weaved seamlessly into a psych thriller. Hard to put down, easy to lose sleep over. Even as an experienced reader of this genre, Sarah Denzil served up twists, turns and scenarios that I did not expect. 5 stars is not enough for this book.
