I fell in love with Liam only to be left shattered into a million pieces. Again. The idea of being without him cripples me but the reality is, he's gone. He doesn't understand, and I can't make him. If only he'd see the conviction behind my words - then Liam would still be here.

It was read very well and I enjoyed the story very much. Pesonally I would have liked to experienced more of Lillys romance rather than just a overview. Besides my personal romantic preference I really enjoyed the story.

It's 1922 in the Manhattan of gin, jazz and prosperity. Women wear makeup and hitched hemlines - and enjoy a new freedom to vote and work. Not so for Evelyn Lockhart, who is forbidden from pursuing her passion to become one of the first female doctors. Chasing her dream will mean turning her back on her family: her competitive sister, Viola; her conservative parents; and the childhood best friend she is expected to marry, Charlie.

This was a wonderful love story that was based in a popular Sydney Australia suburb that I was familiar with. .I jiust hated the NZ sounding accent of the narrator Federay Holmes, whom seemed to pronounce every word like a Kiwi and every swear word seemed to be read louder, if the New Zeakand accent does not give you the cringe factor than you would probably rate this book alot higher.

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.
