Summary

An enthralling story about love, motherhood and choosing who you belong to in the world by best-selling author Kimberley Freeman.

1874: only days before she is to leave the foundling home where she grew up, Agnes Resolute discovers that, as a baby, she had been abandoned with a small token of her mother: a unicorn button.

Agnes always believed her mother had been too poor to keep her, but after working as a laundress in the home she recognises the button as belonging to Genevieve Breckby, the beautiful and headstrong daughter of a local noble family. Agnes had seen Genevieve once, in the local village, and had never forgotten her.

Despite having no money, Agnes will risk everything in a quest that will take her from the bleak moors of Northern England to the harsh streets of London, then on to Paris and Ceylon. As Agnes follows her mother's trail, she makes choices that could cost her dearly. Finally, in Australia, she tracks Genevieve down. But is Genevieve capable of being the mother Agnes hopes she will be?

Enjoyable story but not her bestI

I enjoyed the story but I didnt really warm to Agnes although she certainly had a lot of adventures. I couldn't really see the point of the daughter who had come over from Australia to look after her ailing mother part of the story - I suppose it was to construct the story around the pieces of letters the mother had found but it didnt add anything to the main story and I found it irrelevant. I enjoyed Ember Island and Wildflower Hill much more but still will look out for more of Kimberley Freemans books on Audible.

What an adventure!!

Engaging from the very start. Filled with adventure, love (lost and found) and discovering what and where home really lies. Hey laughed and cried throughout the story. One of the best I’ve listened to in a while!!

Stars Across the Ocean

If the ratings went up to a 10 this book would warrant it hands down!! It was perfectly written with just the right amount of mystery ,exceptional characters and three stories woven into one. Jennifer Vuletics narration was exceptional!!!!!! I will eagerly search for other books by then both!!!

Interesting story.

The twist and turns of the story kept me listening. I feel like the author didn’t quite know how to end it and wrapped it up quickly. I enjoyed the story though.
