Publisher's Summary

Laura Costa, a charity worker settled in London, tries to escape from her dark past by travelling to Cusco, Peru, where she hopes to find the redemption she seeks. When she discovers Kevin, an abandoned two-year-old boy injured and on the verge of starvation, Laura thinks she has finally found a purpose and decides to devote herself to saving the child.

However, what looks like a case of neglect turns out to be something much darker, and Laura finds out very soon that to save Kevin she will have to fight ignorance and superstition, not only in the slum in Cusco, but also back in England.

In her search of happiness for her and her family, Laura’s life becomes an eternal struggle against prejudice and ignorance that makes her doubt about everything she knows, only to discover that the greatest obstacle in her way is none other than she herself.

Wow!

This was a real page turner! (I couldn't stop listening!) I was gripped from the start. Kim Bretton's narration was respectful, moving and easy on the ears! Great work all round and some twists and turns from Jacobo Priegue that I was definitely not expecting. Highly recommend both the writer and narrator. Great job!
