When the Templeton family from England takes up residence in a stately home in country Australia, they set the locals talking – and with good reason. From the outside, the seven Templetons seem so bohemian, unusual... peculiar even.
No one is more intrigued by the family than their neighbours, single mother Nina Donovan and her young son Tom. Before long, the two families' lives become entwined in unexpected ways, to the delight of Gracie, the sweetest of the Templeton children.
In the years that follow, the relationships between the Templetons and the two Donovans twist and turn in unpredictable and life-changing directions, until a tragedy tears them all apart. What will it take to bring them together again?

Indulgent long winded drivel with characters performed in very irritating voices. Where was the editor's pen?
I return to Dickens to read improbable plots that entertain instead of making me wish for the immediate apocolyptic deaths of all the characters.
Lovely story. Hard to put down. Beautifully read
Gracie and Tom finding each other again and the unravelling of the previous 8 years.
Ability to separate the characters with her voice and do the different accents.
I felt Gracie was the centre of the story and enjoyed her growth throughout the book
This was a great story and the narrator made it even more interesting since the setting was in London and Australia and the narrator had a British accent. The story had some interesting twists that kept you enticed right through the prologue! This was my first book by Mcinerney. I have already picked out another by this author. I hope that it is as good as this one was.
I loved this so much! I finished this book and just a few minutes later started listening to it from the beginning again! The narrator was wonderful! Looking forward, hopefully, to hearing much more from Monica McInerney.
