Zoe knows that it wasn't really her fault. Of course it wasn't. But if she'd just grasped harder, run faster, lunged quicker, she might have saved him. And Edward doesn't really blame her, though his bitter words at the time still haunt her, and he can no more take them back than she can halt the car that killed their son.
Two years on, every day is a tragedy. Edward knows they should take healing steps together, but he's tired of being shut out. For Zoe, it just seems easier to let grief lead the way.
A weekend in Paris might be their last hope for reconciliation, but mischance sees them separated before they've even left Gare du Nord. Lost and alone, Edward and Zoe must try to find their way back to each other - and find their way back to the people they were before. But is that even possible?

iPad, Audible & wireless headphones - a recipe for relaxing the grey matter and making tedious household tasks and travel more bearable!
A well written story that is extremely well narrated. Not a book that will lift the spirit, not shed so many tears in years. Will certainly look out for more audio books by this author - maybe a more cheery sequel?
I like the idea of the story but I don't feel that it acheived it full potential.
The idea of being lost in a strange place was interesting although asking someone for help would have sorted it out a lot quicker.
The female narrator was a little annoying, it sounded a bit unnatural, like she was reading it from a sheet for the first time.
Go back to Paris.
I didn't dislike the book but I felt dissatisfield once I'd finished it.
A story of tragedy and grief. A little long and repetitive. Female narrator was a bit harse to listen to. I found myself skipping parts. Okay for a few bucks.
"Redundant & un-intriguing"
All of them, or definitely redefine their roles.
A bit redundant, drug out and obvious for my taste. It doesn't compare at all to it's competitors.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend.
I read the description so had an idea that it was about overcoming tragedy and I was interested in that story however I didn't realize the entire book would be about tragedy and sadness. it was absolutely depressing with very small moments of even normalcy let alone happiness. It was very difficult to get through and I didn't want to return to the story everyday. It was told in an interesting way through both characters pov which I liked but that was about it.
"Very Emotional story"
This is the moving story of a couple who are trying to cope with their son's tragic death. The story is told using two alternating points of view of each of the parents. Most of the story takes place during a weekend trip to Paris, with flashbacks telling the story of how they met and married. Its’s heartbreaking and intense, because we are able to understand and sympathise with the characters' suffering, motivations and actions. I enjoyed the audio version very much. The reading of both characters was excellent.
"Sad but worth the story!"
I really enjoyed this book-in a way, it reminds us all of what we can let go and not work on in a marriage- vs: what we should be willing to do to save our "ever after" and "forever" vows!Although Edward and Zoe had terrible sadness, it could may give hope to many marriages, if we would just let it happen!!I
I thought the idea of the story was a good one. It was exicuted poorly, however. This is a horribly sad story without any resolve at the end. I kept looking at the time remaining in the story, around when there was about 20 minutes left, and I knew there would be a sad ending. I'm quite disappointed.
This was a very difficult book for me to read. It was tragic, exhausting and terribly depressing. I gave it four stars because it was well written, but the story was too sad for me.
Was not sure if I would finish the book. The heartache, misunderstanding, assumptions made, withdrawal & finally understanding the pain, suffering & love between two people to get thru grief had me finish this book.
I couldn't put it down! I listened to it in one day. A beautiful story.
I was truly caught up in this story i only stopped it briefly to use the toilet or to fix a quick sandwich. I finished in in one sitting. thank you it was a beautiful storey.
