Publisher's Summary

Two lives. Two families. One tragedy.Lauren Scott is bright, talented and beautiful. At eighteen, she is the most precious gift in the world to her mother, and has a dazzling career ahead of her. Oliver Lomax is a young man full of promise, despite the shadow his own, deeply troubled, mother casts over him. Then one fateful night, Oliver makes a decision that tears their worlds apart.

Until then Lauren and Oliver had never met, but now they become so closely bound together that their families are forced to confront truths they hoped they'd never have to face, secrets they'd never even imagined...

An involving listen

This is my second Susan Lewis audiobook after the excellent 'No Child of Mine' and it definitely kept me gripped for a few days. Lewis' perception and portrayal of families is so well done that I became completely involved in the story and the lives of the characters. Julia Franklin reads it so beauifully that I am unsure about listening to a Susan Lewis with an alternative narrator. My only criticism is that around half way through things got a little predictable, but still an excellent listen.

Great read

started off slowly with introduction to many characters. However, once it had hot going it was addictive. Really loved driving to work so I could carry on listening! Will definitely be getting another by Susan Lewis

Far too sugary-sweet

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The mother's reaction to every part of this tragedy involved her shrieking at everyone - never at any time was she stunned into silence as the drama unfolded. She was also too perfect, forgiving of everyone and running a successful business while dealing with a severely handicapped daughter - quite unbelievable

What could Susan Lewis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Made the main characters Emma and Lauren less perfect -

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her attempt at two characters speaking English with French accents were laughable - more like 'Allo Allo' than a realistic French accent.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

The long-drawn-out passages involving Sylvie the drunk could have been cut back - far too boring and predictable and added very little to the story.
