Publisher's Summary

Brooke O'Connor - elegant, self-possessed, and kind - has a happy marriage and a deeply loved young daughter. So her adamant refusal to have a second child confounds her husband, Sean. When Brooke's high school boyfriend, Alex - now divorced and mourning the death of his young son - unexpectedly resurfaces, Sean begins to suspect an affair.

For 15 years Brooke has kept a shameful secret from everyone she loves. Only Alex knows the truth that drove them apart. His reappearance now threatens the life she has so carefully constructed and fortified by denial. With her marriage - and her emotional equilibrium - at stake, Brooke must confront what she has been unwilling to face for so long.

But the truth is not what Brooke believes it to be.

More Lucy Ferriss please!

Would you listen to The Lost Daughter again? Why?

Definitely! Cassandra Campbell is one of my favorite narrators. She brought the characters to life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Daughter?

When Brooke saw her lost daughter for the first time.

What does Cassandra Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

her talent of bringing each character to life - the polish accents and Nashda's difficulties in talking because of her disability.

Who was the most memorable character of The Lost Daughter and why?

They were all memorable, from Brooke to her husband Sean and their daughter Megan. Nashda of course and her family. I loved them all.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this audio, I will definitely listen to it again.
