Seraphine Mayes and her twin brother, Danny, were born in the middle of summer at their family's estate on the Norfolk coast. Within hours of their birth, their mother threw herself from the cliffs and the au pair fled. Now an adult, Seraphine mourns the recent death of her father. While going through his belongings, she uncovers a family photograph that raises dangerous questions. It was taken on the day the twins were born, and in the photo, their mother, surrounded by her husband and her young son, is smiling serenely and holding just one baby.

Wow. Very good story. I was especially enthralled by the narrator who really drew you in to the emotion the character was feeling. I will definitely look for her in the future. But the story itself was so much more than I expected. I just thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to the author and narrator.

For a bit you think the story is going to go somewhere but sadly no. It was predictable and boring. Skip this one. The narrator has a nice style though, the audiobooks only saving grace.

As I listen, it is clear the author, sorry, it took two here, were the type of girls they write about. And now that high school is over, with mediocre careers, they wrote about what they knew best.

I bought this for the narrator. Gave up because I got sick of more and more characters being introduced. I don't have time to sit around and do nothing but listen so I play books while cleaning my house and yard, driving, etc. Pass on this one.
