Summary

London, 1938: Lizzie Larch is a 20-year-old hat maker in London's east end. She is happy and popular, but she carries a secret. Seven years ago she was viciously attacked and recovered in a private sanatorium where she miscarried a child.

Lizzie has no memory of the night of the attack, but secrets cannot stay secret for too long. When she starts courting her boss' nephew, a shocking revelation surfaces; threatening to destroy their new-found happiness.

Didn’t hold my attention …..

Well what a boring story or was it the narrator’s boring voice ?? I’m not quite sure which it was to be fair. I found the narrator very monotone and there were far to many, ‘He said’, ‘She said’ going on. I won’t be listening to any further books in this series as the narrator is the same, nor will I be listening to any books that this narrator narrator’s. This is of course my personal opinion you might find you like her and the story but I didn’t.

Luke's Secret

I absolutely loved this story. From the sad beginning when Lizzie was young and to the awful things which happened during the Second World War to the lovely ending, I just couldn’t stop listening. I now must listen to the next two books in the Workshop Girls series!
