Summary

It's 1925, and Patricia, Tara and Aideen couldn't be more excited to be starting a new life in Liverpool. Yet it soon becomes clear that all is not as it seems, for the girls are hastily swept onto a huge ocean liner heading to New York. When their father vanishes midway across the Atlantic, the grieving sisters prepare themselves for a new life in the big city. For whatever their father was running from has every chance of catching up with them....

A little disappointing.

Story starts great and has some good highlights but not as good in second half plus ends very abruptly. A bit disappointing and not as good as other Maureen Lee books.

easy listen

Get lost in the story of 3 sisters and how different their lives are but how close they remain.
A story of love, family, heartbreak and reality in 1930s-1940s.

Well this is strange one

Mmmm. It could actually have been a decent yarn but for the severe lack of eloquence. It sounded more like a news bulletin .. stated facts, starved of emotion. The narrator didn’t help much; she sounded bored and just as starved of emotion as the story itself. Pity really. Cut out the unnecessary and tedious descriptions of the fancy restaurants/coffee shops/diners/clothes/designer labels etc and add some emotion or a bit of oomph to the horrific rape, attack and murder scenes, some romance to the love interests and a bit of drama to the deaths.
