"A moving novel, as a well as a convincing one, and it shows with great clarity how past crimes and well-meaning manipulation damage families for years afterwards" (N.J. Cooper, BookOxygen)
I only purchased this as I like the narrator - but the story was crap, nothing really happened and the ending very disappointing.
"Interesting story, worth including in any library"
It was a good book, not a fantastic book but good nonetheless. I kind of guessed what was going to happen but still wanted to listen to the end
Possibly depending on the content
Flexible, interesting and warm
"Main character is frustrating but a good listen"
Overview of motherhood
At last the lead character has woken up and checked the facts and stopped being so insecure in her relationships
Unbelievable that in today's world any woman would be so insecure that she did not check the facts she was told by a known murderer.
Sadly main character was 'wow is me' the story was annoying and rambled . I made it to the end - just!
Possibly not the author, but the reader was ok.
No, I probably wouldn't. Certainly, I would need to be drawn in.
No i don't think that it needs a follow up book. It didn't end with my wanting to know more. Instead, it ended with me thinking how easily it had all been resolved and that maybe the author had lost interest too?
Try it and see what you think of it.
Not sure that the title really relates to the content, but it was a good listen. Down to earth and relevant to today
