Glad I'm not the only one that found this book interminable. Main character was just annoying, spend all her time seeming to wish she'd spent more time with her dad while he was alive then wasn't even going to go to his funeral? I carried on to the bitter end, there were no surprises other than how much she managed to pad it out. I have been left with a wonderful feeling of lightness every time I open my audible app and realise I can now listen to something else.

Not a listen for the faint at heart

It took me three attempts to try and get into this book. Sadly, although I persevered, I found this book very hard going indeed. The plot seemed disjointed, characters a little confusing and the narration, in parts, quite strange.

I was unable to form any connection with these characters and, in parts, was at a total loss as to who was whom.
