Publisher's Summary

A forgotten childhood. A discovered life.
The poignant new best seller from Cecelia Ahern.
What if you had only one day to find out who you really were? When Sabrina Boggs stumbles upon a mysterious collection of her father's possessions, she discovers a truth where she never knew there was a lie. The familiar man she grew up with is suddenly a stranger to her. An unexpected break in her monotonous daily routine leaves her just one day to unlock the secrets of the man she thought she knew. A day that unearths memories, stories and people she never knew existed. A day that changes her and those around her forever.
The Marble Collector is a thought-provoking novel about how the most ordinary decisions we make can have the most extraordinary consequences for how we live our lives. And how sometimes it's only by shining a light on someone else that you can truly understand yourself.

Couldn't stop listening.

love celia ahern books so thought I'd trial one of her books I've had for a while but not yet had a chance to read. initially I thought I'd just listen on way to work on the bus but found myself listening at home until I'd finished all within 24 hours. great story and enjoyed the Irish readers too.

Easy and entertaining

The story was interesting, with enough action and information to draw you in, but by no means a challenging listen.
The chapters were cleverly titled to fit the narrative of each character, so it felt like the story was well-structured and easy to follow, even with a few days' gap between listening.
Both narrators were engaging and their voices suited the characters well.
