Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Charlie by Lesley Pearse. 

Her family is threatened, and only she can save it....

When 16-year-old Charlie witnesses a brutal attack on her mother by two strangers, she is shocked and terrified. But after talking to the police she realises that her father's business dealings can't be so innocent. 

With her father away, it is left to Charlie to protect her mother. And somehow she must find out who wants to hurt her family - and why - without losing faith in her beloved parents. 

Can she unravel the mysteries of the past that haunt her family? Or will the truth wreck everything she loves?

Lovely and warm

Firstly outstanding narration. Honestly, I could listen to almost anything that Georgia Maguire relates. The book was very comforting and mostly enjoyable but it did start to drag out in the last couple of chapters. Still overall a good read
