Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of A Hundred Pieces of Me and One Small Act of Kindness comes a heartwarming, bittersweet and uplifting story of missed chances and unexpected opportunities.
Caitlin's life is a mess. Her marriage to a man everyone else thinks is perfect has collapsed, along with her self-esteem, and breaking free seems the only option.
Nancy, her four-year-old daughter, used to talk all the time; in the car, at nursery, to her brother Joel. Then her parents split up. Her daddy moves out. And Nancy stops speaking.
Nancy's Auntie Eva, recently widowed and feeling alone, apart from the companionship of two bewildered pugs, is facing a future without her husband or the dreams she gave up for him.
But when Eva agrees to host her niece and nephew once a fortnight, Caitlin and Eva are made to face the different truths about their marriages - and about what they both really want....

Good but not her best

I'm usually a massive Lucy Dillon fan and as much as I enjoyed her usual cleverly woven plot lines and the way she deftly brings in characters from previous books, namely Anna and a sly name drop of Buzz, the story line with the children made me cringe slightly. It was far too saccharine for me.
The performance by Lucy Price Lewis was great, her voice depicts the tone of Lucy Diamond's books perfectly and her accents are good.
Overall an enjoyable listen but would recommend her back catalogue over this one.
