But will unearthing painful family secrets end up tearing Nicola's family apart?

Struggled with the narration at times, particularly the Canadian accent... Would still recommend. A lovely story with deep sadness in parts.

sad and traumatic

I had to keep listening despite its emotional content, there was resolution in its finish. shame the sound levels weren't great at times and I had to have the volume louder than was needed so I didn't miss any of the quieter parts of the story

Engaging, but...

This was an engaging story, performed well by the reader (although her North American accent has an obvious 'tell' I found distracting). I did find the ending a bit rushed and too pat and implausible. Still worth the listen, but not quite up to the race reviews, in my opinion.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book

A very interesting and layered plot, well written with believable characters brought to life by the skill of the reader. There was a niggling irritation in the naivety of the main character but nothing that caused me to stop listening.

The excellent narration made a bleak story compelling.

A rather bleak tale, but excellently narrated by Sarah Durham, who charged such emotion into the narrative it was compelling listening. A voice I could listen to for hours. Well done bringing this story to life.
