    Any additional comments?

    Well worth downloading, I loved this from beginning to end and was disappointed when it was finished. Having read some less than favourable reviews I was a bit sceptical but it certainly did not disappoint . It was perhaps what I would call a good holiday read, not too taxing but certainly very, very enjoyable. If you read for enjoyment and not to analyse and interpret then this is well worth reading.

    "The real Katie Lavender"

    You are back, the past couple of books have be a bit Mills and Boon and the books I really enjoyed were the early life stories. I must admit I wanted to slap the Father as he was such a wimp but he came good in the end. I always think your main character always draws you in so she could be your best friend by the end of the book. A very good read or listen.

    "A good read"

    Without spoiling a plot line for readers, I found that there were tears running down my face as I was listening to how the family coped with Neil's story. This happened in my family and I was struck by the accurate portraying of reactions of other people.
    Over all I enjoyed listening to it and was sad when it ended.

    "Good Story shame about the reader"

    I enjoyed this book and was gripped from the beginning but the reader sounded about 15 and it sounded ridiculous when she was reading the supposed words of a 90 year old. At times it was also hard to tell who was speaking.

    "Wonderful story"

    I loved the premise of a search for "who am I" and how people often think that their persona is set by other's labelling of them.

    "Title did not fully download - no pt 2"

    As an audio book the story is ok & nicely narrated - however part 2 failed to download & the screen message stated 'file corrupted' so I have been unable to finish the story.



    I attemped to download part 2 several times.



    I reported this however the issue was not resolved nor was an alternative title offered.

    I am a wife, Mother and also a teaching assistant. My addiction in life is listening to crime novels. Love Peter James.

    "Yawn"

    Loved this start of this very long book. It seemed really promising. Without giving too much away, suffice it to say there is nothing to give away. The story was something and nothing.

    Beautifully narrated though. Love Finty Williams.

    "Lovely story about forgiveness"

    Narration excellent, writing excellent, if a bit flowery at times. You can empathise with the characters although I don't know if I could ever be as good a woman as Pen was in the book!
    Brilliant book to listen to on a long journey or in serial, as I usually do as I go through my daily routines.
    I would thoroughly recommend this book for us romantics who like a good ending.

    "Really lovely story"

    I love Finty Williams reading this style of book, it really suits her voice. I enjoyed the main charachter Katie Lavender.

    I don't usually listen to romance novels but this had depth and kindness, a lovely story read by a wonderful narrator.
