Publisher's Summary

Kit Mason has lived a life of unimaginable pain. An ex-prostitute, she has fled the clutches of an abusive pimp and now finds herself living hand to mouth in a new city, without anyone to help her.

Frances Thornton seems to be living the perfect life. A lawyer from a privileged background, her perfect façade hides the painful secrets that still haunt her.

Brought together by their attempts to conquer their addictions in an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, the two women strike up an unlikely friendship.

But can they find strength in each other - or will the demons of their past catch up with them?

    "Beautiful and touching"

    Being a great fan of the Detective Kim series, I was excited to pick up this book. Though it couldn't be further from that series, it was just as brilliantly written and the story held a nice pace with many twists and layers. I'm an Angela Marsens fan for real!

    "Compelling"

    After devouring the Kim Stone series I was keen to try anything else by Angela Marsons and was not disappointed although it is not something I would have picked without the previous connection. I felt one of the players was a bit hard on Kit given the circumstances but otherwise it was a totally compelling story I could stop listening too.

    "Refreshing and surprisingly inspiring"

    I found this book in the Crime/thriller section not sure what its doing there. I do not think the cover or title reflect the story.However I found this story surprisingly intriguing and inspiring. The author addresses complex social subjects with sensitivity and insight. I particularly enjoyed the feminist undertones. Most of all I am very impressed that the typical clinched ending was avoided.I found this book genuinely inspiring.

    "don't bother!"

    awful, full of clichés, flat one dimensional characters, saccarin like narration was unbearable in parts. the author used phrases from another of her novels and very similar themes. not worth the money

    "Disappointed!"

    There are 8 Angela Marsons audio books available of which six are in the outstanding Detective Kim Stone series which are all 5 star suspense mysteries. The Forgotten Woman is contemporary fiction. British author Angela Marsons should stick to the mystery/thriller genre.

    Story
    "Not what I was expecting"
    Would you try another book from Angela Marsons and/or Alison Campbell?

    Yes


    What could Angela Marsons have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was too obvious- the whole story. It was unbelievable that Kit changed her life so quickly- wasn't there a waiting list to get in at the half way house? Every plot seemed very amateurish. It seemed like it was written by a high school student in an advanced writing class.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing

    I didn't love it . Too much going on. Narator ok; maybe I'd like the story better if I'd read it.
