From the best-selling author of Thursdays in the Park....
Annie Delancey is happily married with three grown children. But she guards a secret. Aged eighteen she had a baby boy, and gave him up for adoption. Out of the blue, she receives an official-looking letter from Social Services. Herson wants to make contact.
As the son she has never known comes back into her life, his presence begins to expose the cracks in the family that Annie now has to try, desperately, to hold together.
"I was ripping through this book...addictive" (Evening Standard)
"Poignant, well observed and wonderfully written, this is a bit of a heart string-puller" (Closer)

Let down by poor narration
The narrator! She voices the character of Annie extremely well but all the other characters voices are spoken very loudly, very slowly or both!
Despite the appalling narrator I kept listening to this book because I was interested in the story and the outcome. It is similar to a Joanna Trollope family saga and I was interested in all the characters and their reactions to the revelation.
The narration was so poor that I almost stopped listening. However I did persevere and could cope with listening in small doses. I have never heard a book narrated by Maggie Mash but will avoid her in the future. There are so many fantastic narrators who would be perfect for this book!
I did like this book and will try not to let the narrator put me off listening to another Hilary Boyd
I am a DARLEK
the story itself was quite interesting....BUT the narration was diabolical, i kept expecting her to say i will exterminate you. i am positive this could be a highly rated book if it wasn't for the narration. Her intonations were all wrong and it really got on my nerves.
with a different narrator i probably would
sort of, but i could have 'really' enjoyed it
