Summary

For a decade, Hannah’s life has been pretty close to perfect - she has a great job, she’s married to Mark, and her child-free existence means she’s free as a bird. The only sadness in her life is a fall-out with her sister Diane, who hasn’t spoken to her in over 10 years. But now Diane is on her doorstep - and this time, she’s got her teenage daughter, Mia, in tow. 

When Diane asks if Mia can stay with Hannah and Mark for a few days, Hannah is glad of the chance to get to know her niece. But as the days turn into weeks and Diane doesn’t return, Hannah begins to worry. Why hasn’t her sister been in touch? 

Diane is carrying a devastating secret that will destroy Hannah’s carefully constructed life. But how much is she willing to reveal - and when will she pick her moment? 

An emotional story that delves into the true meaning of family, sisterhood and secrets. Perfect for fans of Kerry Fisher and Adele Parks.

Too Long

This is a good story, but rather dragged-out. It would have benefited from tighter editing.

Heartbreaking

Sometimes a book catches your eye like this one did for me, but I didn’t realise how much it would unfold or become a real life experience.
After recently grieving the loss of a family member to suicide it brought back some real emotional connections. Then, again other similarly events unfolded with another loss to cancer. This book is so beautifully written, tenderly tells the story of a Mother’s unconditional love along with the reassuring message that where there is love healing can start. Thank you so much for helping me heal my grief x

waste of time

What a waste of time! A very predictable and thin story line. Even the sentences were predictable. In contrast, the narration was good.

A bit long-winded

tThere are parts of this story that were very drawn-out. I thought it could be summarized and half the length. Sorry, I just didn't really enjoy the Journey.

Easy reading and listening on Audible

I'm 66 and reading books is possible with Audible and it's now a big enjoyment. Thank you for a wonderful narrative and an easy read. It's a good book and I'm happy it had a wonderful ending apart from the horrific beginning. Best to 'Mia'
