Fifteen years ago someone else took Alison's baby from the hospital. And now Alison is facing the unthinkable. Her daughter belongs to someone else. What would you do if you discovered your beloved child is not yours?

This book just goes on and on and on and on about the most mind numbing inconsequential detail. It's like a drone that doesn't stop.The actual story could be good,but the book should be about 2 hundred page shorter.ive never experienced this kind of ridiculous detail,ever. The sort of detail that has nothing to do with the story. ie. Talking about radio 1 djs endless rubbish about hairstyles. Random and bizarre. Boring twoddle
The beginning of the story was quite promising but it got worse and worse. I kept persevering for the big twist, but wish I hadn't. Probably the worse book I have downloaded
I really enjoyed this book, but it was ruined by totally incorrect information regarding BRCA mutations. The 15 year old Katherine was tested for a BRCA mutation. Firstly under 18's aren't allowed to be tested as it isn't seen as ethical, and secondly they would have asked for the actual mutation her birth mother had, not just blindly test for a a mutation in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene. The Narrator also wrongly spelled the letters out rather that pronounce it 'bracka' This kind of information could be easily obtained by a quick google!
I've enjoyed Adele Parks for some time now and this was no exception. The plot was interesting and certainly had twists and turns. Definitely worth a listen.
Retired but busier than ever, love to listen to audible whilst doing household chores etc.
I did want to keep seeing what happened next it was both thought provoking and intriguing.
