Scotiabank Giller Prize finalist
A young, enigmatic woman - Lily Azerov - arrives in postwar Montreal expecting to meet her betrothed, Sol Kramer. When Sol sees Lily at the train station, however, he turns her down. His brother, Nathan, sees Lily and instantly decides to marry her.
But Lily is not who she claims to be, and her attempt to live a quiet life as Nathan Kramer's wife shatters when she disappears, leaving her baby daughter with only a diary, an uncut diamond, and a need to discover the truth.
Who is Lily and what happened to the young woman whose identity she stole? Why did she leave and where did she go? It is up to the daughter Lily abandoned to find the answers to these questions as she searches for the mother she may never find or truly know.
Any additional comments?
This was such a great story. I was completely engaged and loved every second of it. The only problem was the audio. It was quite choppy, often jumping back 5 seconds, or repeating words here and there. On a couple of occasions the audio skipped ahead a second or two and left me wondering what was supposed to be said there.
Still, a good purchase. I really enjoyed it.

Good story. Worth a listen. Poor edit quality. Lots of repeated sentences which becomes irritating.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
While I enjoyed the storyline in general, I was annoyed but the reader. She would often re-read a line. Where was the editor?
