Publisher's Summary

A story of mix-ups, mess-ups and making the most of second chances, this is a novel from international sensation Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You and The Giver of Stars.

Who are you when you are forced to walk in someone else's shoes?

Meet Sam...

She's not got much, but she's grateful for what she has: a job she's just about clinging on to and a family who depend on her for everything. She knows she's one bad day away from losing it all - and just hopes today isn't it...

Meet Nisha...

She's got everything she always dreamed of - and more: a phenomenally rich husband; an international lifestyle; and...she's just been locked out of all of it after her husband initiates divorce proceedings...

Sam and Nisha should never have crossed paths. But after a bag mix-up at the gym, their lives become intertwined - even as they spiral out of control.

Each blames the other as they feel increasingly invisible, forgotten, lost - and desperately alone.

But they're not.

No woman is an island. Look around. Family. Friends. Strangers.

Even the woman you believe just ruined your life might turn out to be your best friend.

Because together you can do anything - like take back what is yours...

Such a fun and enjoyable book

Best listen I've had in months and months. Loved how relaxed and fun it was. I need more of Nisha please. I love her character and want to learn more about her attitude to life. And what shoes / clothes are next!

Had potential but,

I thought this was a fantastic idea for a plot line. However, I was disappointed in the way it unfolded. It depended on some very unlikely plot twists and some overly bad, bad guys. It just didn’t seem plausible.

Underwhelming and bit slow

For a 12 hour book, I was expecting there would have been a lot more to the story line and it jammed packed with twists and turns. I enjoyed it, however found it at times boring and slow. It was also predictable and left me with a sense of underwhelm at the end. The kind of book that I stuck with because hoped it would get more exciting, yet it just never did. Book could have had a lot of unnecessary stuff cut out or got to the point quicker and cut the book in half time wise.

Disappointing

Not Jojo’s usual standard. The story felt like a Disney movie. The whinging husband and bully boss was overdone and boring and all the twists and turns seemed far fetched. The friendship of the women was a missed opportunity. Narrator was excellent.

Fantastic story & narration!

How does Jojo’s Moyes do it? She always writes such magnificent, entertaining stories (no pressure). The narration of this audiobook was stupendous as well. Such talent combined means I’m listening to it again straight away. Thankyou!!
