A mother desperate for the truth. A daughter hiding a terrible secret.
Melanie Oak appeared to have the perfect life. Married to her childhood sweetheart, Jacob, the couple live with their beautiful, loving, teenage daughter, Beth, in a pretty village. Nothing can shake her happiness - until the day that Beth goes missing, and is discovered beaten almost to the point of death, her broken body lying in a freezing creek on the marshes near their home. Consumed with grief, Melanie is determined to find her daughter's attacker. Someone in the village must have seen something. Why won't they talk?

nearly returned this book

After the 3rd chapter i was going to return this book and read it on kindle because the narration was appalling . Before doing so i turned up the speed of the narration . This just about made listening bearable . Doesnt anyone check these narrators work ? spoilt my enjoyment of this book.

Awful narrator.

This book was totally ruined by the narrator who read like she was reading to a reception class! Every word was artificially enunciated and she read really, really slowly.
The story was a good one, but the "shocking twist" was predictable, so not as gripping as I'd hoped.
