Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Daughter by Jane Shemilt, read by Sophie Aldred.
I still don't know why we had to check. Did we really think you would be there, curled up and sleeping on the stage? That we would put our arms round you, and take you home?
Naomi has vanished, leaving her family broken and her mother Jenny desperately searching for answers. But the traces fifteen-year-old Naomi left behind reveal a very different girl to the one Jenny thought she'd raised. And the more she looks the more she learns that everyone she trusted has been keeping secrets. But will discovering the real Naomi help to find her?

Kept me hooked...after a while

Was recommended this book by a friend and I have to say it was a good listen, the narrator is very quirky with a the little accents and I'm not sure if I'd have preferred it all in one voice as it sounded slightly like she was reading a children's book in parts.
The book itself was definitely worth the listen, I found myself listening more and more each night.
What I'd change; I wished the ending hadn't been so rushed and I'm still left with questions. Some of the interesting areas such as Jenny's relationship with Michael, and her children's bad attitudes were skimmed.
But overall I would recommend this book

Good story but didn't like the audio version

Loved the story but found the voice of the narrator really spoiled it for me. She failed to give the story any depth of emotion & sounded far too young for the character of a mid 40's professional mother of 3.....& her South African accent was rubbish! Shame as it made it too annoying to finish listening. Got part way through & returned it - bought the book to read it myself instead!
