Publisher's Summary

Kit Mason has lived a life of unimaginable pain. An ex-prostitute, she has fled the clutches of an abusive pimp and now finds herself living hand to mouth in a new city, without anyone to help her.

Frances Thornton seems to be living the perfect life. A lawyer from a privileged background, her perfect façade hides the painful secrets that still haunt her.

Brought together by their attempts to conquer their addictions in an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, the two women strike up an unlikely friendship.

But can they find strength in each other - or will the demons of their past catch up with them?

Disappointed!

There are 8 Angela Marsons audio books available of which six are in the outstanding Detective Kim Stone series which are all 5 star suspense mysteries. The Forgotten Woman is contemporary fiction. British author Angela Marsons should stick to the mystery/thriller genre.

I'm hooked

I now can't get enough of Angela Marsons but will have to wait for more! I only they I had not survived her sooner. I went with the"name brand" authors who are great but Ms Marsons depth and emotional realism are not comparable. Alison Campbell is just as good so I will pass the time waiting by listening to more books she narrates.

Very realistic

I found the characters to be very well-developed. They battle with alcoholism in a way that is realistic and overall it was an entertaining book

Not what I was expecting

Would you try another book from Angela Marsons and/or Alison Campbell?

Yes

What could Angela Marsons have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It was too obvious- the whole story. It was unbelievable that Kit changed her life so quickly- wasn't there a waiting list to get in at the half way house? Every plot seemed very amateurish. It seemed like it was written by a high school student in an advanced writing class.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Nothing

I Managed to Finish

I didn't love it . Too much going on. Narator ok; maybe I'd like the story better if I'd read it.

Beautiful and touching

Being a great fan of the Detective Kim series, I was excited to pick up this book. Though it couldn't be further from that series, it was just as brilliantly written and the story held a nice pace with many twists and layers. I'm an Angela Marsens fan for real!

don't bother!

awful, full of clichés, flat one dimensional characters, saccarin like narration was unbearable in parts. the author used phrases from another of her novels and very similar themes. not worth the money

Compelling

After devouring the Kim Stone series I was keen to try anything else by Angela Marsons and was not disappointed although it is not something I would have picked without the previous connection. I felt one of the players was a bit hard on Kit given the circumstances but otherwise it was a totally compelling story I could stop listening too.

Refreshing and surprisingly inspiring

I found this book in the Crime/thriller section not sure what its doing there. I do not think the cover or title reflect the story.However I found this story surprisingly intriguing and inspiring. The author addresses complex social subjects with sensitivity and insight. I particularly enjoyed the feminist undertones. Most of all I am very impressed that the typical clinched ending was avoided.I found this book genuinely inspiring.

Brilliant!!

I chose to read this book because of its reviews. Apparently it was good for a first time writer. They were not wrong. It was a very enjoyable book! The characters were very relatable and sometimes I even forget that they are not real! I have nothing bad to say about this book.

Tacky romance

An awful book that goes nowhere except where you expect it to go. Pretty Woman and Mills and Boon all in one. I will be returning this one.
