Absorbing from beginning to end!

This story had so many twists and turns but nothing detracted from the sad and painful journey of Emily/Kat. Trying to start again after such pain is a familiar theme and this ultimately heartwarming ending was both a relief and satisfying. Excellent!

Disappointed!

Based upon the description, I expected to enjoy this book. The reviews, together with the early chapters confirmed this expectation. The premise and the back story are interesting, the characters reasonably fleshed-out. Each time something new was introduced, I sensed that the story was about to really get going. However, a little less that 2/3rds in and it has remained rather bland. Sadly, I have lost interest and will return it. Too many books, too little time.

Meh

With almost six hours of this audiobook left, I gave up. I just didn't care to find out what happened to our dreary protagonist.

Overall a lot of misery

I found this ok and yes there was a twist to it that really is difficult to guess. It moves along at quite a slow pace and I did think the characters were not all that interesting. I thought the narrative was really good but would not rush out to buy another book by this author.

A slow mover, but it has some twists

An easy listen with some twist and turns in the story but all in all it is quite a slow book. I feel the voice for Emily sounds too old for what I imagine which was a bit off putting. I felt that I really wanted to get to know other characters a bit better than what the book allowed.

I would still recommend this book those it is a good summer listen/read for your holidays.

Very good, both readers were perfect

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
