Summary

A sweeping, evocative story of love, secrets and betrayal, set against the stunning backdrops of Karachi and Cornwall.

Perfect for listeners who love Santa Montefiore, Rosanna Ley and Dinah Jefferies. 

When Gabby’s husband accepts a transfer to Pakistan, she discovers a new world of heat and colour, of exotic bazaars and trips to the breath-taking Kashmiri mountains. It is an escape she didn’t know she was looking for. 

But then a shocking letter from her sister reveals a devastating secret. Gabby is transported back to her childhood home on the Cornish coast, and as memories unravel, so too does her new life in Karachi. 

Will Gabby find the courage to face the dark secrets and embrace a different future?

An illuminating journey

I listened to this as a beautifully read audio book which started by gently drawing you into the world of Gabby & Dom and their childhoods in idyllic Cornwall. I enjoyed beginning to understand their adult lives too. But the real treat was getting to visit the extremes of Karachi! And the twists and unexpected turns of storylines that I did not see coming kept me gripped. I felt rather emotional as I got drawn into the completion of the story and having to say goodbye to all the very real characters. Looking forward to reading and listening to lots more books by this fabulous author.
