Her family is threatened, and only she can save it....

When 16-year-old Charlie witnesses a brutal attack on her mother by two strangers, she is shocked and terrified. But after talking to the police she realises that her father's business dealings can't be so innocent. 

With her father away, it is left to Charlie to protect her mother. And somehow she must find out who wants to hurt her family - and why - without losing faith in her beloved parents. 

Can she unravel the mysteries of the past that haunt her family? Or will the truth wreck everything she loves?

An easy listening book

This book was very long for what it was. It had a lot of stories over a long period of time that at times were quite dull and dragged on a bit. The highlight for me was the friendship Charlie developed with her fisherman boss. Nothing extraordinary but not awful either.

Great story!

Havev really struggled over the last few months to engage with an audio book (after years and years loving them), but this book had me gripped from the start.
Beautifully written, great characters and exciting throughout.
