Publisher's Summary

From the bestselling author of The Girl in the Corner comes a story that asks: how do you forgive the family that lied to you, and love the mum you never had?

When her loving, free-spirited grandmother Primrose passes away, Victoria is bereft, yet resilient - she has survived tragedy before. But even her strength is tested when a mysterious woman attends Prim's funeral and claims to be the mother Victoria thought was dead.

As the two women get to know each other and Victoria begins to learn more about her past, it becomes clear that her beloved grandmother had been keeping life-changing secrets from her. Desperate for answers, she still struggles to trust anyone to tell her the truth.

To live a full and happy life, Victoria knows she must not only uncover the truth, but find a way to forgive her family. But after so many years, is trusting them even possible?

Sadly, not very interesting.

I usually love this author's books - no one can deny that she can write very well. However this story is just terribly boring. The characters are not interesting. They all go on about how much they all love each other but YAWN .....

Could be better!

The start was good. The end was good. Unfortunately, the rest rambled on and on and on.

Predictable

I found this book to be very predictable and boring, not like other books that I've listened to by the same author. This was more like a book for teenagers. a disappointing read.

Excruciatingly Slow!

This is one of the most boring books I’ve ever heard. The heroine goes on and on and on, chapter after chapter, lamenting the same things over and over again. Seriously, save your money and pass on this one.

The Day She Came Back

Every story I listen to makes me love this author more. She has the ability to capture the hearts of her characters and all emotions. You do need a tissue box close by too, it is good and bad scenes that play out. Well done on another good read. Tour narration is excellent.

Teenagers

I wish it had been marked as a teenager’s book. For me , it was boring ,long winded and predictable .
By the time I’d decided that it was to continue thus it was really too late to return it.

So disappointing

If you are expecting an adult book then I suggest that you keep looking! This is about a teenager, for a teenager and reads like it has been written by a teenager. Not at all what I was expecting 😔

Captivating

One of life’s every day challenges brought to life with all it’s difficulties explored. Amanda Prowse has a way of expressing true empathy.

Another brilliant novel

As usual Amanda Prowse has written another brilliant novel. She is my favourite writer and I especially love the way she narrates her own books. Her voice is especially lovely to listen too.
