Publisher's Summary

'Will you marry me?'

I think of you, then. I think of you every day. But usually in the quietest part of the morning, or the darkest part of the night. Not when my boyfriend of two years has just proposed.

I look up at Richard with his hopeful eyes. 'Lily?' he prompts.

It's been ten years, but it feels like only yesterday that you left. How can I say yes to Richard with all my heart when most of it has always belonged to you?

I take a deep breath and will myself to speak…

Ten years ago when Lily was just sixteen, she fell in love with someone she really shouldn't have fallen in love with. Now, living in Sydney and engaged to another man, she can't forget the one that got away. Then her past comes back to haunt her, and she has to make a decision that will break her heart - and the heart of at least one of the men who love her.

Excruciatingly boring.

Would you try another book from Paige Toon and/or Jane Collingwood?

No

Improve characterization, add humor, avoid cliches.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performer did a good job with the Australian accents

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Boredom. I stuck with the book for four chapters, hoping it would improve, but it remained at the same trivial level.

Brilliant!

Once I started listening to this book I couldn't stop. I couldn't wait to find out what happened, especially the second half of the book. I would recommend this book.
The narrator was very good too, managing the accents well.

Jane Collingwood is great at bringing PT to life!

Narrator does a fantastic job with accents and telling the story. also great to find out (SPOILER ALERT- IF YOU HAVENT ALREADY READ "LUCY IN THE SKY") how Lucy and Nathan are doing, another great by Paige Toon, although Chasing Daisy remains my favourite by her!

Had hoped for more

Not as good as previous Toon books. Didn't find Ben and Lily's relationship realistic. Easy read though.

Great book, cringeworthy narrating!

The story was fantastic. The narrator has a lovely voice and great for a young character in the book. The narrating starts off well and then Lily meets an Australian male. The narrator does the worst MALE Australian voices and accents and I wish she would stop! She makes the main character sound any thing but gorgeous and I can't get weird images of these people out my head!
I love reading books because you imagine the people and how they sound. When you do these horrendous voices it makes them sound so bizarre! Would be much better if all read in one voice. Please stop with accents and opposite sex impersonations!!!!
