Summary

Dana and Caitlin meet on the ferry from Ireland, both in search of new lives in Liverpool, having left their secrets behind in Ireland. But Dana is ambitious, and when the opportunity comes to own their own tearoom she persuades her friend to join her. No one is willing to rent property to a couple of girls, so when Caitlin’s new man-friend says he’ll back them, they are delighted. Soon the tearoom is thriving. But after an accident which puts her in hospital for some time, Dana begins to remember her lost life with more affection, particularly Con, the boy she left behind…

Then fate intervenes, and soon the girls find themselves fighting to survive in a world on the brink of war.

Not as captivating

Would you try another book from Katie Flynn and/or Anne Dover?

I didn't think "The Runaway" was as captivating as some of the other Katie Flynn novels that I have listened to over the past months. I found it drawn out and boring at times, though I did finish the book and have to admit I liked the ending. I will however listen to more Katie Flynn books as this is the only one that I found boring adn I love listening to books narated by Anne Dover.

Has The Runaway turned you off from other books in this genre?

No
