Publisher's Summary

I am always with you. I will always be here.

This was the promise Ella’s mother betrayed thirty years ago when she walked into the sea, leaving her five-year-old daughter alone in the world. Ella’s been angry ever since, building up a wall to protect herself. But that all changes the day she opens a newspaper and finds those ten little words printed in a classified ad.

Ella refuses to believe her mother could still be alive - that would mean she did want to live, just not with her daughter. So she throws herself into finding out exactly what happened all those years ago, determined to extinguish even the tiniest flame of hope - for Ella, hope is torture.

But rather than settling things once and for all, what Ella discovers shatters her world. As she pieces together the truth behind her mother’s disappearance, she learns that the words are not what she thought.

Now she knows the truth. Is it possible that Ella can allow herself to love - and be loved - once again?

A bit too soppy for my taste

An okay story, performed well. To be honest I found it a tad predictable and Ella was so wet and damaged that she really annoyed me. I think the character was very one dimensional and wanted to shake her.

👏🏼 BRILLIANT 😊

This has been one of the most enjoyable book that I have listened to, and it has now become one of my favourite. Love the story and narration, Karen Cass is one of my very best favourite and have many books narrated by her. 😊 Really wanted to keep listening to it and wished that it was longer. Did not want to come to the end of it. Love the characters all of them, and fact that the story made complete sense from beginning to end, and a happy ending. A Big Thank U for the hard work that went into providing this extremely enjoyable book. 🌷🤗 😊 🤗🌹
