Summary

Everything Polly does, she does for her son Louis. Leaving her abusive partner, struggling to overcome alcoholism: she will do whatever it takes to keep Louis safe and happy.

Then Polly meets Ben. After years of heartache, could Ben give Polly the happiness she thought she'd never find again? Ben himself is struggling with acting as guardian to his orphaned niece Emily, and he and Polly bond over trying to be good parents.

Just as Polly thinks her life may be turning around, the unthinkable happens. When her new life balances on a knife edge, will she be able to stay strong for Louis one more time? 

A tearjerking listen that will stay with you for ever, One Step Closer to You is perfect for fan of Jill Childs, Jodi Picoult and Lisa Wingate.

loved it

Have enjoyed all the A Peterson books I have read. They are different to the usual boring and predictable chick lit. The characters are realistic, everyday but always have their own, unique life problems to get through, learn from and overcome. This was my first book on audible and I wasn't sure how I would feel about having it read out loud to me. It was relaxing! My imagination was still firing off with my own pictures in my mind. I was using my new Echo Alexa which gives a good sound. I liked the reader's clear voice. She subtly changed her voice when speaking as a child or as a man- but in a believable way. Thank you Alice for another wonderful story.
