Publisher's Summary

From the author of the Kindle number one best seller The Letter comes a heartbreaking novel of tragedy, hope and second chances, set in England in 1976 and the present day and in Australia. Fans who treasure the novels of Lesley Pearse and Susan Lewis will adore this author.

It's the long, hot summer of 1976, and the regulars of The Taverners pub in Manchester are preparing for a day trip to Blackpool. But after a horrific coach crash, not all of the day-trippers make it home.

Forty years later, and the consequences of that fateful day are still being felt by the families. But what if not all was as it seemed on that stretch of motorway, and someone has been hiding a devastating secret?

    "Katherine Hughes Does It Again!!"

    Another good story by Katherine Hughes and beautifully narrated by Rachel Atkins. I think this partnership works really well.
    I loved the story which involves a group of local people, that know each other from their visits to the local pub, a day trip to Blackpool and its subsequent repercussions. This story is one of anguish, loss and family struggles. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend this read to anyone else.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed The Secret very much. The story is entertaining and plausible in a light-hearted story telling way. A good read. Well written and well narrated.

    Story
    "Don't judge a book by its cover!"

    I absolutely loved it. After months of ignoring Audible's 'suggestion' of this book based entirely on the dreadful and tacky cover I finally relented and loved this book.
    The narration is good, the plot is interesting and kept me listening (although a slightly predictible end... I would have been sad if it hadn't worked out like that so really, they couldn't win!)
    I would highly recommend this book, a lovely way to pass a few hours and I would love to hear more.

    "Brilliant audiobook"

    One of my favourite purchases.I couldn't stop listening .
    Really enjoyed the story and liked the characters. The narrator brought the characters to life.
    Didn't want it to end.
    This is the first audiobook I have listened too by Kathryn Hughes and I have now purchased The Letter . I hope it's just as good as The Secret

    Story
    "Better then her first book!!"

    loved it! I found at first I was a bit confused, as you go to the past I couldn't work out the link between the characters... but once I got into it I ended up hooked. The story was much better then the authors first book, and I loved the dynamics of the characters and how well developed they are so you really care about them.
