Publisher's Summary

Single mother Callie has come to rely heavily on her best friend Suzy. But Callie suspects Suzy's life isn't as simple as it seems. It's time she pulled away - going back to work is just the first step towards rediscovering her old confidence. So why does she keep putting off telling Suzy about her new job? And who will care for her rather frail daughter, Rae, while she is gone? Suzy and Callie live close to each other on a typical cramped, anonymous London street. Neighbours seem to move in, and move on, before you have even learned their names. Callie's increased sense of alienation leads her to try to befriend a new resident on her street, Debs. But Debs is anxious, odd. You wouldn't trust her with your child - especially not if you knew anything about her past.

An unexpected joy

This book was a lovely surprise. I was expecting chick lit but it is so much more and definitely one of my most memorable listens of the year. The characterisation is excellent and the plot twists and turns so many times to keep you continually guessing. Clare Corbett is an excellent narrator and Louise Millar an author to watch.

really absorbing!

Fantastic narrator and a very interesting story which I was riveted by! The way the story unfolds slowly really sucks the listener in and the accents were spot on.
