Summary

The brilliant new novel from the best-selling author of The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets. Audio bonus: contains Tara's debut single, 'May to September'.

1962, Cornwall: Tara Jupp - vicar’s daughter, occasional thief, expert horse-rider and second fiddle to her sister ‘the beauty’ Lucy - sings at a wedding and is spotted by a record producer. With the spotlight suddenly, thrillingly shining on her alone, the roots of Tara’s country existence are shaken free and she is propelled to swinging-'60s London.

Plunged into a dazzling new world of fashion, music and heartache, in a city where skirts are being hitched up as fast as the past is being pulled down, can Tara hold the limelight and hold on to who she really is?

Awful narrator, disapointing sequel

The choice of a high pitched, and squeaky sounding cornish narrator was very odd, it really put me off listening.
I absolutely loved keeping secrets, it was so stylish and such escapist fun but this story was dull and quite silly. Shame
