It's hard to write a review without giving spoilers so just to say would recommend this as a compelling story with heartbreaking layer upon layer of secrets!! Will stay long with anyone who reads!

Enjoyable listen

I enjoyed this book. It compulsive listening and I completed it in one day. The narrator was good. Very easy to listen to and enthusiastic in her performance. The story took a while to unfold but when it got going it was excellent. A complete page turner. I liked the way the author tied up all the loose ends in the books conclusion. This is the first book I have bought by this author, but will definitely listen to more. A good use of a credit.
