Publisher's Summary

In the ashes of her marriage, she finds the truth about his past and the courage to start again in...The Last Paradise.

Grace has the perfect life: a job she loves, a beautiful daughter and a rich, successful husband. But one night, when their world falls apart in a shocking disaster, Grace suddenly sees what she couldn't admit - her marriage and her husband are a fraud.

With the life she knew in tatters, she takes an assignment promoting the launch of a unique luxury hotel, hidden in a stunning, untouched oasis in the heart of tourist-crazed Bali.

Here, in this last paradise, Grace gathers the strength to take charge of her world. And, inspired by a woman's story from long ago, she discovers a path to a future she'd never dared to imagine....

Great Story pity about the narration!

Another great story from Di Morrissey. It was well researched and had interesting characters but the narration really detracted from the overall experience. It could have been sooo much better.

Great story, annoying narrator

Not my favorite Di Morrissey book but very enjoyable. Unfortunately the narrators ‘snobby’ voice affected the warmth of the characters.

Spoiled by the narration

This book was totally spoiled by the narrator for me. She has a lovely voice but it was slow, sometimes sounding like a guided meditation and very unnatural.

Slow start but worth it

The story started slow and felt boring the narration was slow so for the first time I speed up narration. Once the story established itself it grabbed you but it was a slow burn with a few strands of stories working around the main character. I liked it but did not love it!
