Once a week Rosie Tipcott counts her blessings. She goes to sit on her favourite bench on the North Devon cliffs and thanks her lucky stars for her wonderful husband, her mischievous young daughters and her house by the sea.
But then her husband unexpectedly leaves her for another woman and takes the children. Now she must ask the question: what is left in her life? Can Rosie find the strength to rebuild herself? More importantly, does she even want to?

"Narrated by the author,. . ."
Narrated by the author is usually the duo I try to avoid. However Amanda pulls it off, well done.
Nice and easy to listen too, not the greatest story line but enjoyable and light. Enjoyed narration and looked forward to picking up where I had left off each time.
Very observant about how friends react to an affair. And how you can suddenly end up with nothing tgrough a couple of misfortunes together
"Made me smile and sad. Real life scenarios"
Loved the fact it was set at Woolacombe. Very easy to listen to and quickly get to know the characters.
I will purchase another Amanda Prowse book, especially if narrated by the author again.
I will remember this book
thoroughly enjoyable book, I was hooked from the first chapter . read by the author, who has a beautiful voice.
I genuinely haven't enjoyed a book this much in a very long time. Amanda has delivered a truly remarkable and realistic story.
I only read books or listen to them in bed so, having to go to bed earlier every night to see what happened next means that the book was really good.
"She took me with her"
I really felt for the main character Rosie. She was believable and likeable and she took me on the journey with her.
I'd have liked a little more complexity or challenge to my thinking but a nice easy listen.
I was wary to see that the author read the audiobook as think it is a real skill to narrate a book, but she was really professional and skilled.
I found this book really sad, it broke my heart in places. Never a truer word said!
