Publisher's Summary

When her husband dies in a tragic accident, Antoinette's world falls apart. He was her rock and the man she thought she knew better than she knew herself. But as she arrives at the church for George's funeral, she sees an unfamiliar woman. Phaedra loved George too, and could not bear to stay away from his funeral. As she sits before his wife, she knows that what she is about to reveal will change their lives forever….

excellent story line

loved this story, kept my interest right to the end. Well written and brilliantly performed. Highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a bit more than a chic flick!

Challenging story-line

I have enjoyed the story so far but the narration is awful and absolutely ruins the characterisation. I could not bear to listen to it again.

Predictable

This is the first Santa Montefiore book I have read and three chapters in I am pretty sure how it is going to end. I would stick with it, if it was not for the appalling reading - the arch female voices and the terrible attempts at male voices spoil the whole thing.

Easy and entertaining read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

the exposure of the main character's real relationship to the family

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The above

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Any additional comments?

Montefiore's characterisation is good and I appreciate a new plot in each of her books rather than an old one in new clothes
