Publisher's Summary

Deserted by the two women in his life, Robert Sullivan is left to raise 3-year-old Nancy and her 7-year-old brother Jack. Unable to cope with his feelings of loss and the rebellious behaviour of his young son, Robert is driven to abandon his children to those who he sincerely believes can provide them with a better life. However, after a chance encounter with a stranger, he has a change of heart and decides to go back for them. But, on the way there, he is involved in a horrific accident.

next time I will listen to sample text

This is a "period piece' set in turn of the 20th Century England ($). Starts in 1895, a fact I could have used in making my purchasing decision. That sais, if you read the first review of this Author's work, lovers and liars, by "Wynter' from Marina, CA, USA Date: June 06, 2005, this review pretty much sums it up. A hates B, tragically separated from C, who is hated by D and loved by Z but miraculously reunited with G, who is married to C, but in love with A, who is hated by P, and everyone is reunited and married off to one another (except for the villian who pushed A into the carriage path, the only loose string in all of this. narrated very well, just not my kind of book - trite, boring, unlikely and predictable. My mistake for not adequately investigating content beyond publisher's description.

A LOVELY STORY!

I love the Authour Josephine cox and have read many of her books - i think this is the first one i have had on audio. Carole Boyd captures the characters beautifully! I didn't want to put it down. A rather predicatble story but with a twist at the end. I love happy endings! Well worth a listen. Thankyou Josephine cox!

Great

This book was a little slow off the burner, but, once it got going I couldn't put it down, I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.

Fantastic read

Love reading Josephine Cox books. Its a really good book, and she never lets me down, and as i am from Bedford originally it is really weird hearing the narrator mentioning places i know.
