Couldn't stop listening. Wonderfully weaves together stories of two young women in wartime London with the efforts of a daughter to understand a violent episode from her childhood.

I thought a book this long wouldn't keep my attention. Wow was I wrong! I sat in my car freezing to listen to just one more chapter.
This book had me looking for excuses to go in the file room at work so I could listen!! Another reviewer said to be patient in the beginning, and I'm glad I did, because it started off a little slow. Don't get discouraged!! This story is unforgettable! Highly, highly recommended!!
it's the best way to spend a working day, and i'm thankful my job is one where i can listen to books all day long.
I absolutely enjoyed the story of Dolly, Jimmy and Vivian. I didn't want to let them go, and there's no doubt I'll listen to this novel again as it's become a new favorite.
Every time I thought I knew where the story was taking me, I was surprised to see different paths opening up. It was simply lovely.
Definitely worth a credit.
Great story and wonderful reader. Morton and Lee make a great pair! Looking forward to another book.

This book took a long time to get to the biggest revelations, but when they come, you'll be gasping for breath. A masterfully told tale of wartime adventure, dashed hopes, and second chances. And another fabulous performance by this narrator!
This book has everything one needs to curl up and get lost with: hard to put down, keeps you guessing about "who-dun-it" and why, crosses time, generations and history, family bonds, all while weaving love in and out and is beautifully and superbly written! The only book I have ever finished and wanted to open back up and start over immediately! Thank you, Kate Morton!!!
