Publisher's Summary

Washed up on the beach, she can't remember who she is. She can't even remember her name. Turns out, she has a perfect life - friends and family eager to fill in the blanks. But why are they lying to her? What don't they want her to remember? When you don't even know who you are, how do you know who to trust?


What the Critics Say

"I was immediately drawn into Mia's story from the first sentence.... The twisted, shocking end had me speechless!...I would definitely recommend The Girl from the Sea as a great summer read." (Truly, Jennifer)

Tried twice - couldn't do it.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I had two attempts at this story. Perhaps it was just too slow for me but I couldn't work up any interest in the character at all. Plus the voices were not very good. In fact, a doctor with an accent - possibly supposed to be eastern european ... had me gagging! Truly awful.
This is one I will return.

Has The Girl from the Sea put you off other books in this genre?


What didn’t you like about Gemma Dawson’s performance?

There didn't appear to be any empathy with the characters. Personally didn't feel she had enough range for 'voices'.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not for me it didn't.

Any additional comments?

I am pleased that Audible has a return policy.

This started off promisingly enough but quite quickly became predictable. I worked out what was going to happen and couldn't be bothered listening to the end. Not a big fan of the narrator either.
