Summary

What was my sister doing standing over Florence’s cot in the middle of the night?

I trust my sister, Carrie, with my daughter’s life.

But then she’s accused of a terrible crime.

Carrie lives under our roof, she pushes my daughter on the swings, she takes her out for ice cream.

You might ask, why do I let her? Why would I risk my darling baby? How could I let my sister stay?

Because I have a dangerous secret, too. One that only Carrie knows about. And if that secret gets out, I could lose my little girl....

A completely gripping rollercoaster of a listen about the darkness families hide behind closed doors. Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will be hooked on The Girl She Wanted.

Tragic story of circumstances

Medical dram which kept me interested. Narrator was excellent in multiple voices. Easy listen. Interesting character study.

A Good Listen

A good story overall. I wasn't keen on the narrator's attempt to read different characters, I found some of it quite monotone.

There were some good twists but I did think the story slowed down slightly in places but it quickly picked back up.

I would recommend it for a listen 😉
