Publisher's Summary

The Stranger in My Home is the utterly compelling new contemporary novel from Adele Parks, Sunday Times best-selling author of The State We're In, sure to move, grip and delight her fans along with readers of Liane Moriarty, Jane Shemilt and Lisa Jewell.

When you have everything you dreamed of, there is everything to lose.

Alison is lucky, and she knows it. She has the life she always craved, including a happy home with Jeff and their brilliant, vivacious teenage daughter, Katherine - the absolute centre of Alison's world. Then a knock at the door ends life as they know it.

Fifteen years ago someone else took Alison's baby from the hospital. And now Alison is facing the unthinkable. Her daughter belongs to someone else. What would you do if you discovered your beloved child is not yours?

    "I'm really struggling to get through this one ..."

    I am more than halfway through this book and don't understand how it's a bestseller? The concept is quite interesting but the main character couldn't be any more boring or unlikeable - so self focussed and unattractively obsessed with her daughter. I'd hate to be living in her head with her thoughts which I feel like I am as the book is from her perspective. She has almost zero concern/interest for her biological daughter which seems quite unrealistic to me as a mother.

    The narration is just as boring and I find it distracting when the female narrator tries to (badly) put on male character voices.

    Perhaps this book is better read rather than listened to as it wouldn't take so long and the narration wouldn't detract from the story.

    "Character issues"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Interesting story but I didn't find the characters very like-able and the main character Alison comes across as selfish and self-involved swayed by a handsome face over her family.

    "Mispronounced windy!"

    I really enjoyed the book apart from the obvious mispronunciation that the roads were "too windy" . Luckily this was near the end of the book, otherwise I would have stopped listening and returned it.
