From the author of the Kindle number one best seller The Letter comes a heartbreaking novel of tragedy, hope and second chances, set in England in 1976 and the present day and in Australia. Fans who treasure the novels of Lesley Pearse and Susan Lewis will adore this author.
It's the long, hot summer of 1976, and the regulars of The Taverners pub in Manchester are preparing for a day trip to Blackpool. But after a horrific coach crash, not all of the day-trippers make it home.
Forty years later, and the consequences of that fateful day are still being felt by the families. But what if not all was as it seemed on that stretch of motorway, and someone has been hiding a devastating secret?

"Very good book. Recommended."
After reader her previous book The Letter i searched out more from this author and narrator, i was not disappointed.
Both the storyline and the characters soon came alive. Loved the ending too.
narrator was good very well read....good storyline.....good twist in story....really enjoyed first audible story ☺
"Good beginning predictable ending"
I loved this book at the beginning but as it went in I got really bored and really struggled to keep going. I much preferred The Letter and would recommend that book over this one.
"A well versed story"
First and foremost I enjoyed The Letter and because of this bought The Secret. A good read with an in depth knowledge of human behaviour.
I gathered the secret towards the middle of the book but another part of the story was a complete suprise.
Gripping story, beautifully written., The narration added depth to this audio experience. More please from this writer.
Loved it + loved the narration!
Highly recommend this if you like a story that is present day and past. If you are in your 40's or older you will undoubtedly enjoy!
The narrator's accents - they became very annoying.
Yes, I liked the story but felt it went on too long. Found the story line a bit jumpy.
The narrator puts a lot of feeling into the reading but her accents are a bit annoying
I think the book would have been better shorter. I felt I couldn't wait to get to end and ready something else
The author tries to put bits in about the seventies like she had googled what was around then i.e. clackers, plagues of lady birds etc. I remember that summer and her descriptions felt false.
"great listen... thoroughly enjoyed & wd recommend"
was a great wee read - will definitely look up books by same author - the narrator was very good too
A fantastic book, really enjoyed listening. A great second book. One to watch!
Try it, you won't be disappointed.
"really enjoyed this story, couldn't put it down."
