As Charles Redfern lies motionless in hospital, his wife Anne and daughter Charlotte are forced to confront their relationships with him - and with each other. Anne, once beautiful and clever, has paled in the shadow of her husband's dominance. Charlotte, meanwhile, is battling with her own inner darkness and is desperate to prevent her relationship with her not-yet-divorced lover from disintegrating. As the full truth of Charles's hold over them is brought to light, both women must reconcile themselves with the choices they have made, the secrets they have kept, and the uncertain future that now lies ahead of them.

I'm sorry to say, yet another good book completely ruined by poor narration. One of the most important things about listening to an audiobook is being able to get lost in the story (as one would in one's own head) and to not be continually reminded you are listening. The bad pronunciation and the reading of notes to editor really spoilt this book for me and I couldn't wait for it to be over. As you can see I almost completely forgot to even mention the book itself, so upset am I by the reading of it! The story is a good one, not much depth but a good insight into what happens when families don't talk to each other.
