Publisher's Summary

Nina McCarrick has it all: a loving husband, two beautiful boys, a well-appointed home and more time than she knows what to do with. Life is perfect. Until her husband, Finn, is killed in a car accident and everything Nina thought she could rely on unravels.

Alone, bereft and faced with a mountain of debt, Nina quickly loses her life of luxury and she begins to question whether she ever really knew the man she married. Forced to move out of her family home, Nina returns to the rundown Southampton council estate - and the sister - she thought she had left far behind.

But Nina can't let herself be overwhelmed - her boys need her. To save them, and herself, she will have to do what her husband discouraged for so long: pursue a career of her own. Torn between the life she thought she knew and the reality she now faces, Nina finally must learn what it means to take control of her life.

Bestselling author Amanda Prowse once again plumbs the depths of human experience in this stirring and empowering tale of one woman's loss and love.

Disappointing throughout

Unfortunately this was another whiny by Amanda just like the one before. Sad, constant misery with no real kick to the story except more whining.

Not great

I found it clumsily written somehow, predictable and saccharine. Narration was clear but clipped. Easy to follow, would be OK to listen to while travelling.

Brilliant Book!

Reading this book makes me think about life and how things can change in a split second. But with family, friends and love you can make it.

Thought provoking

I’ve never read or listened to one of Amanda Prowse’s stories before. So didn’t know what to expect. Not a genre I usually go for. Was pleasantly surprised by the story and journey. Will definitely go for another of her books.

Listen to this- you won’t regret it

Excellent, thought provoking, heart warming story. Loved the narration- Amanda has a lovely voice. Great characters that you can relate to and that are believable. Excellent storyline. You won’t want to finish this, I didn’t. So very well written, thoroughly enjoyable. I have already recommended this book to several people,

Excellent read

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Very well written and well done to Amanda Prowse for reading it herself. Not many authors seem to do that.

Fabulous

Every one of her books is better than the one before. This one was undoubtedly my favourite. I couldn't put it down. She has become my favourite author and her narration is superb. The beginning is so sad but the ending is a triumph over adversity.

Oh, Amanda!

I love her books, but she really needs to stop being so self indulgent and let a decent narrator voice her work. That random whispering voice made me want to throw my phone at the wall and ruined what was actually brilliant story.

Sad but true

Easy to listen to, highly enjoyable and a few home truths. Stuff is just that - stuff. Good story, not quite as good as some of her others but enjoyable none the less.
