Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She's even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed.

Because the story kept jumping from date to date it was difficult to keep track of time and date, unlike a printed book where you can go back to the start of a chapter and check character, time and date of setting. If the chapter index of this audio version could include this information it would make a vast improvement.
