In the riverside town of Bedford, four students can hear the haunting voice of a woman singing. The beautiful melody is coming from their neighbour a reclusive creature who never opens the door to anyone or leaves her home in daylight.
They have no way of knowing that the woman next door, Madeleine Delaney, is driven by a dangerous memory that for over 20 years has controlled her meagre existence....
Madeleine’s angelic voice and striking looks capture the hearts of many. But she only has eyes for club owner Steve Drayton, a devastatingly handsome but terrifying man. Then one night she witnesses a horrific crime, and her life is irrevocably changed forever.
Never read J.Cox for years,and this book did not Dissapointed. A very good story and well narrated.Well done.Josephine Cox.
I found this book a little hard to get into at first, but I am so glad I persisted with it. This story is very well written and bit by bit unravels the mystery behind Maddie, the Songbird. Her story is both gripping and heartbreaking and I'm glad it works out for her in the end - even though it took the best part of twenty years for it to do so!
I really enjoyed how all the pieces weaved and interconnected throughout, as the story progressed the puzzle pieces clicked into place.
A most enjoyable read, and I'll be looking for more of Josephine's books to listen to soon. :)
