Publisher's Summary

It took only one night to tear a family apart.

Artist and illustrator Edwina Spinner used to have a busy family life. Now she lives alone in a house that has grown too big for her. She has decided to sell it. As Edwina takes the estate agent from room to room, she finds herself transported back to her life as a young mother. Back to her twins, Rowena and Charlie, and a stepson she cannot bring herself to mention by name. As the house reveals its secrets, Edwina is forced to confront her family's past and a devastating betrayal that changed everything. But Edwina doesn't know the whole story. And to discover the truth, she will have to face the one person she vowed never to see again.

    "wonderful"
    Where does Moving rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best family saga's I have listened to, riveting, sad and funny. The characters are all so well defined.

    "Unexpectedly good if a tad depressing"

    Not what Expected by the blurb or the author. Thoughtful, sad and full of anxiety but eminently readable and enormously visual. A good story which echoed real events.

    "Lovely book"

    A fantastic story showing just how complicated families and step families are. It shows how decisions are made and how they impact on others in ways you dont guess. blame laid at peoples door, when really its no ones fault, except life and its sometimes cruelty. Well worth a listen and narrators are amazing.

    "A really engaging read,"

    I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this book as Ms Eclair is not my most favourite performer. She is now a favourite author! Moving was an emotional read both sad, tender and funny. A really accurate portrayal of complex family relationships with brilliantly drawn characters who o loved and hated in turn. An excellent read.

    "Unlikeable characters"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Not much really, couldn't even finish the last half an hour or so


    Any additional comments?

    Having thoroughly enjoyed vanilla cream slices I was disappointed with this. There were NO Sympathetic characters except the black nanny and she was only sketchy. All the others were thoroughly unpleasant and unlikeable, complete idiots or nasty pieces of work

    "Loved it!"

    I didn't know what to expect from this book, but was very pleasantly surprised and was gripped from the start. The twists and turns in the family history are fascinating. I thought the performances were good, although the voice of Fern sounded a bit computerised at times. I was sad to finish as I want to know what happened next!
