Well written story and wonderful narrative but it involves a lot of sensitive issues that may be distressing for some listeners so I feel it should come with a trigger warning!

The story was so wonderful I couldn’t stop listening despite having to stop several times due to the bad narrator. She has a horrible whiney voice with a really annoying hiss at the end of her sentences. Almost ruined the book for me! Not sure if I’ll try any other Rosie Goodwin books as unfortunately they all have the same terrible narrator, which is a real shame as I bet they are fab!

Lily has grown up believing she accidentally killed her mother when she was four. She not only has her own memory of holding the gun, but her father's account of the event. Now 14, she yearns for her mother, and for forgiveness. Living on a peach farm in South Carolina with her father, she has only one friend: Rosaleen, a black servant whose sharp exterior hides a tender heart. South Carolina in the '60s is a place where segregation is still considered a cause worth fighting for.

Such rubbish. It is repetitive and juvenile. This is complete fiction! Just made me annoyed I wasted 6 hours on it.
