Very good listen. My one criticism is that the mystery is solved for the listener too early in the book.

It’s 1983 and Stephanie Crouch’s life is dull. She is desperate to escape the run-down, pokey council house she shares with her overbearing family, but at fourteen years old she has nowhere to go. When Stephanie meets East End wide-boy Barry, his cockney charm and quick tongue soon have her head over heels in love. Finally Stephanie feels like her dreary life is on the up. But too young to control their fate, Stephanie and Barry are torn apart when he is whisked away to Spain by his family.

A mystery involving the relationships and betrayals of well developed characters over decades. No cliches. A story with many unpredictable twists and turns.
