Summary

From the best-selling author of While My Eyes Were Closed comes a powerful, emotional novel about how far we can trust those closest to us. 

You can run from the past, but you can't always stop it catching up with you....

Alison is a marriage mender. Her job is to help couples who fear they have reached the end of the road. So when her husband's ex, Lydia, arrives on the doorstep demanding to see her son, Alison thinks she can handle it. But what Alison doesn't realise is that Lydia is the one person who has the ability to destroy their happy family. And sometimes the cracks run too deep to ever be repaired....

Good Listen

The story itself was lovely, but the ending needed more time. felt a bit rushed

Really enjoyable

Enjoyable, sad, happy, excellent narration and many likeable characters I could care about, right up until the final “twist” which I felt was completely unbelievable. There were some parts which I felt were unnecessary but neither of these really spoilt the larger story.

Fantastic narration

It had me in tears at several moments. Really well written and lovely story - but the narration brought it to life.

Half of story unnecessary

I am over halfway through listening to this book, but I really don't get why the 'consultation room' parts are necessary, it's just confusing with all the different people introduced and doesn't seem relevant at all. Maybe I am jumping the gun and it will all make sense in the end, if so I will re write my review, but at the moment, due to this I am barely clinging on to this book
