A lifetime later, Julia is a child psychologist who every day deals with young girls said to be behaving badly. Some are stealing, some are running away from home, some are terribly untidy, some won’t eat or get out of bed. Julia has a special knack with these girls. She understands which really are troubled, and which are at the mercy of the way they are seen by the adults around them. But one day, Julia’s own troubled past starts to creep into her present. And as she struggles to understand her childhood self, she must confront the possibility that the truth may not be as devastating as she feared.

I love Margaret Forster's books but this is the first one I listened to rather than read on the page. Sian Thomas is an exceptional narrator and really brought the story alive with her accents and inflexions. A five star listen and a must for all fans of this writer. It would make a great subject for a book group discussion! The main character is not endearing and her mother a bit of a monster. Who knows how she would have turned out with a different parental set-up? I found the ending too abrupt though and listened to it three times to see if I'd missed something!
