Publisher's Summary

A strange encounter. An unlikely friendship. But will it survive when they both know the truth?

As single mother Leah struggles to get her children ready one morning, the doorbell rings. Standing on the doorstep of their terraced house in Whitley Bay is a well-dressed stranger, Clio, who feels an emotional tie to the house that she can’t explain. The story should end there, but a long-buried secret is already on its way to the surface...

In some ways the two women couldn’t be more different: Leah’s a mother of two and the daughter of a barmaid; Clio’s a perennially single heiress to her baroness mother’s estate. But where Leah lacks grown-up company, Clio lacks any experience of the real world, and the unlikely friendship sparked by their curious first meeting offers both of them a welcome respite from the routine of their lives. 

It is a friendship that will answer questions neither of them knew to ask, uncovering secret stories from the past that have stayed hidden for decades. But will it also be the catalyst for them to finally feel that they belong?

Excellent

Loved this book. Completely original. Bought it on spec and it was an unknown quantity... but am so glad I did. Excellent narrator too.

Too whispering

It may have been a good story but it was hard to listening since the narrated sounded like she was whispering as she read . She has a great voice and all but the level of softness was irritating.

Ridiculous from chapter 1

This is ridiculous storytelling from chapter 1. Unrealistic and unbelievable characters. It was an Amazon freebie so I'm only out my precious time.

Recommend to unfussy, simple readers.

Boring

Thought I had this figures out from the get go. Too bored to find out if I was correct. Some writers can make any story interesting ,no matter how predictable others can't. Miss clark is one of the latter. Also narrator has a speech problem, like so many British readers. I don't mean the accent.
