Summary

Liberty Chapman had a difficult childhood. The oldest of four kids, she tried to protect them from their violent father until one day he murdered their mother and got sent down. 

What was left of the family rattled through the care system, bouncing from foster placement to care home. Liberty would have probably ended up on drugs, or dead, or worse if it hadn't been for a ballsy solicitor who told her to get her act together. So that's what she did. She kept her nose clean, got an education. 

And look at her now. New name, new accent, new town. The past is far behind her, and she's concentrating on her own legal career. She has a Porsche, a house in Hampstead...and then one morning her boss asks her to do a favour. He wants her to go to Leeds, to get an important client's son off an assault charge. 

But Leeds is in Liberty's past. And once she hits town, the past slaps her in the face...and pulls her back into what she worked so hard to leave behind.

DNF - Really Not For Me

I have listened to Dark Spaces by Helen Back and narrated by Imogen Church and that was a great book. I decided to try another one of Helen's but the narrator killed this story for me. Her twangy accent just did not fit the story and sadly I could not finish. This one will be going back.
