Summary

A story of mix-ups, mess-ups and making the most of second chances, this is a novel from international sensation Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You and The Giver of Stars.

Who are you when you are forced to walk in someone else's shoes?

Meet Sam...

She's not got much, but she's grateful for what she has: a job she's just about clinging on to and a family who depend on her for everything. She knows she's one bad day away from losing it all - and just hopes today isn't it...

Meet Nisha...

She's got everything she always dreamed of - and more: a phenomenally rich husband; an international lifestyle; and...she's just been locked out of all of it after her husband initiates divorce proceedings...

Sam and Nisha should never have crossed paths. But after a bag mix-up at the gym, their lives become intertwined - even as they spiral out of control.

Each blames the other as they feel increasingly invisible, forgotten, lost - and desperately alone.

But they're not.

No woman is an island. Look around. Family. Friends. Strangers.

Even the woman you believe just ruined your life might turn out to be your best friend.

Because together you can do anything - like take back what is yours...

Extremely disappointed

Although I did want to keep listening to this audiobook I found it really difficult. It starts off promising but goes downhill quickly. The style of writing was extremely disappointing, many phrases repeated, adverbs every five minutes and generally very unimaginative. The characters became more unlikable and unbelievableI as the story progressed. I was very glad to finish it. It may be something to read on the beach but great writing it is not.

Perfectly written

Just enough tension, humour and interest throughout the whole book.
Couldn’t put it down and liked the ending, a few surprising twists and turns along the way

standard chick lit

predictable and dragged out. Daisy Ridley was good but the voice felt too young to portray middle aged women.
