Publisher's Summary

The Girl Who Couldn’t Leave is the perfect hopeful and heart-warming listen we all need! Fans of Jojo Moyes, Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain will love this emotional and uplifting story.

She hasn’t left her house in five years. Can love unlock the door? It’s been 1,825 days since Fiona Dexter last set foot outside 14 Wellington Drive. Five years ago, something happened that changed Fiona forever. Now she is too afraid to walk beyond her front gate. It’s not the life Fiona had dreamed of, but she has made it work, finding happiness in the safe routine of her days.

But today is different. Today, her perfectly planned Monday is suddenly interrupted by a knock at the door and a stranger on the other side. Someone who could change everything. Now Fiona is faced with an impossible choice. Is she brave enough to open the door? And if she does, will it set her free from her past or close her off from the world forever?

Loved this feel good story

I really enjoyed this story, it’s characters and the overall diversity. It was so easy to listen to and so hard to turn off. Very English and that makes me smile.
Loved it and now see there are two more from Catherine I haven’t listened to yet, they are top of my list!
