Without her mother she is alone in the world....

Twelve-year-old Adele is placed in a bleak, cruel children's home after a family tragedy drives her mother to madness. But when trust is betrayed Adele has no choice but to run away.... 

Alone and friendless, she heads for Sussex to seek out the grandmother she has never known. However the journey, without food or shelter, leaves her desperately ill. Surrounded by the beautiful Rye Marshes, Adele is nursed back to health. 

Can she now dream of a new life? But what will happen when her mother reappears bearing shocking family secrets?

Awful narration

Dreadful narration ruined the story for me. Wouldn't buy another book narrated by her again

Another great story!

Another great story - shame about the narration!! Sophie Ablett is horrendous!
I stuck with it because I love Lesley Pearse's books and the story did not disappoint. If you can get past the appalling narration and terrible put on voices, stick with it. Never shall I listen to this narrator again.

Awful narrator

The story was good but spoiled by the awful, sometimes laughable narration of the characters.
