I've listened to a few thrillers lately and Bern a bit disappointed as they have been too 'off the wall' this was a well written book with a believable story line and plenty of twists and turns. Even some humour from ones of the characters!

Narrator was high pitched and i didn't find it suited the book. The story wasn't as good as i had hoped it would be. I got the plot early on in the book but hoped there might be a twist at the end to throw me off, unfortunately not. Another crime revenge thriller but without the twists....

After a few books i struggled to finish this book had me hooked from the beginning. The descriptive narrative throughout the book painted a clear picture in my imagination of the characters, the locations and the unfolding story. It kept me guessing the whole way through, a fantastic story with twists and turns at every corner. I will be reading more from the authors without fail!

I found this book gripping from beginning to end. The story, set originally in WW1 was compelling and i found myself unable to put it down. The story of Sophie and her life during these hard times kept mr wanting to read more. Then the story changed direction and cuts to 2006, focussing on the painting 'The girl you left behind'. To start with i was agitated that the story of sophie had been left unfinished, but as the story continues her story, and the story of the picture is explained.
Great story.
