The next stunning title from Richard and Judy pick Amanda Brooke.
When Jo pretends to be asleep as her husband leaves for work the morning after an argument, she doesn't realise how deeply she will come to regret the opportunity to say good-bye. By nightfall her life has changed irrevocably. David has disappeared, and there doesn't seem to be any trace of him.
But Jo is five months pregnant, and her marriage is full of secrets - not least, David's unwillingness to start a family.
As the mystery around David's disappearance shows no sign of being solved, Jo must choose: Will she give up her baby to make the man she loves come home?

"[A] touching sensitive story...an extraordinary, moving tale." (The Bookseller)
"Enchanting, moving and hard to put down." (Closer)
"A haunting and heartbreaking story that stayed with me long after I'd finished." (Fern Britton)
"Life affirming." (Sunday Mirror)
"Magical and 'unputdownable'." (Katie Fforde)
"An extraordinary debut novel." (Daily Express)
I did enjoy the book, but found one or two parts laboured excessively. There was however an excellent summing up of Anxiety neurosis and the grieving processes, which will no doubt be a help to many.
80% of the book are descriptions of the main character's panic attacks!
A dull ending didn't redeem it .
It was unremitting dreary overdone mawkish sentiment from beginning to end. No cliche left unstated..... Slightly interesting plot, which kept me going to the end, but I was glad to finish it.
