Maisie Brennan is standing on a podium on the 20th anniversary of the death of her son, trying to find the first breath that will help her start talking to a room full of strangers.
A daunting task at the best of times, but she's also menopausal and one hot flush away from totally losing it. But as Maisie begins her story, she relaxes and, word by word, disappears into her past, back to the day when one mistaken action led to a chain of events that changed her life forever....

Absolutely, it's one of the best!
This is a real find. It is a beautifully written, warm, moving and satisfying book. All of the characters are richly drawn. I engaged with all of the main characters and and completely believed all of the minor ones. The story totally absorbed me. It is compelling to the last word. As always Aoife McManon's narration was excellent. I don't usually just gush in a book review, but for me this book is faultless. I look forward to more by this author.
