    "Surprising find"

    I have never read a Di Morrisey book before and wasn't sue how I would find her as an author.
    The main character hooked me in quickly and I became annoyed when the story shifted backwards to the 1930's to be about her grandmother. The chapters are long and I kept wondering how long I was going to have to wait.
    The second time the story jumped backwards in time the story was more interesting and I started to enjoy the shift.
    I was surprised that I found myself wondering what was going to happen next through the use of good storytelling.
    Di Morressey doesn't utilize any shock techniques or outrageous situations, just a good genuine tale that keeps you interested.
    I have since purchased 2 further Di Morressey audiobooks based on the strength of this book and Di Morressey has become my favorite adult author.
