Summary

One day she had everything - the next it was gone.

William and Amy love their busy city life, but when Will collapses on his way into work he decides enough is enough and moves his family to the country.

Three months later, Amy is standing outside Helmshill Grange, a sullen monstrosity of a house, deep in the Yorkshire moors. Within days, Will has traded in the Audi for a Land Rover and brought home chickens, goats, sheep, a serial-killer cat and a mad dog.

But when tragedy strikes, Amy finds herself living a dream that isn't hers....

Loved this story. Although the ending was a bit predictable I still couldn't wait to see what happened. Reader I found very hard to take at first. I did get used to her but she's a long way from my favourite reader. I was gong to download another Carole Matthews title, but unfortunately its the same reader so I'll think again.
