Publisher's Summary

Restless, troubled Rosamond Hunter has spent most of her life running away from the past, filled with guilt about her involuntary role in her mother's death. When her nursing job brings her back to Fairfleet, her childhood home, to care for an elderly refugee, she is forced to confront the ghosts that have haunted her for so long.
Her patient, Benny Gault, first came to Fairfleet, England, in 1939, having fled Nazi Germany on a Kindertransport train.
As his health fails, he and Rosamond begin to confide in each other. At first their tentative friendship revolves around the love they both shared for Rosamond's glamorous grandmother, Harriet, but as their trust in each other grows, guilty secrets are exposed and history is turned on its head.
From the acclaimed author of Playing with the Moon and Restitution comes a beautiful and haunting tale of friendship, redemption and forgiveness across generations.

I am not sure. It was predictable, very predictable. No I wouldn't recommend it


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was a bit suprising, but that is all


Would you be willing to try another one of Sue Pitkin and Michael Page ’s performances?

Michael Page, loved himLet put it this way, Sue Pitkin is ok but, and it is a big but, she is horrible as a man or performing a dialect. I really had a hard time listening to her. Just horrible


Do you think The One I Was needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Absolutely not. Can't see that there would be anything more to write about with this story
