Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Lydia, Robyn and Dean don't know each other - yet.

They live very different lives, but each of them, independently, has always felt that something is missing. 

What they don't know is that a letter is about to arrive that will turn their lives upside down. 

It is a letter containing a secret - one that will bind them together, and show them what love and family and friendship really mean....

Reads like a Good Suspense Novel...

...despite not actually claiming to be a suspense novel. The suspense is built around the anticipated coming together of 4 completely separate domestic/family stories - stories of 4 separate people. Beautifully crafted, plenty of emotion. There's even the possibility of a murder at one point. Plenty of cliff hangers at the end of each chapter as we switch to one of the other 4 stories, eventually leading to a very satisfactory ending. I'm a fan of Lisa Jewell, and I'm pleased to say that this latest book is up there with her best.

Fabulous listen...

I always enjoy Lisa Jewell books
This was quite a departure from the usual storyline but I thoroughly enjoyed this. Quirky and heartwarming- a beautiful written book

not sure about this one.

I enjoyed this book at first but have to say I struggled in the middle and got a little bored. I usually love Lisa jewell but this one wasn't for me.

Readable but not gripping

Excellent narration by Laura Aikman. Well written. I did not get gripped by the plot, however. Definitely enjoyable but maybe not my favourite Lisa Jewel book.

I have read many Lisa Jewell books, but for me, this isn’t one of her best. The story was interesting and l enjoyed it. It was very well narrated.

Easy listen, but gripping story

The topic was intriguing and the characters believable, with the threads of their lives cleverly interwoven.
Lisa Jewell’s best book yet for me.

Brilliant

Totally enjoyed this book. Believable and likeable characters. Excellent narrator. Brought a tear to my eye at the end. Well worth reading.
