Publisher's Summary

In 2006, three-year-old Phoebe Piper went missing. Despite massive publicity, no trace of her was ever found. Seven years later, Molly Jackson, aged 10, finds her great uncle Dan dead in his bed.

Molly remembers nothing of her early years, but she's been sure for ages that she is Phoebe. Now, finally, she has proof. Dan's death brings his sister Janice back to Norfolk where she's reunited with Molly's mother Suze, the daughter she gave up for adoption decades earlier. Janice discovers that a former lover, Joe Vincent, lives nearby.

As she is drawn back into the past, Janice begins to wonder if Dan's death and Joe's reputation as a reclusive acid casualty are quite what they appear... And then Molly disappears.

A trip down memory lane for us old hippies

Laura Wilson couldn't write Stratton books for ever (sadly) and no this book doesn't really quite live up to that series. It does however have a cast of very strongly written characters and for anyone - like me - who was part of the hippy scene back in the 60's this really does conjure up those days admirably. I thought it also very sensitively showed how perhaps our generation struggles with growing older. This is well read by Anna Bentinck but the threads of the story do stray off somewhat and I think could have been rather more neatly explained and tied up. There is no doubt however that once you start listening you won't want to stop - and therefore despite the flaws this is a solid 4 star listen I think.

Page turner

Really enjoyed this, I gave read Laura Wilsons DI Stratton series which I loved but this is quite different and very intriguing.
The reader did it justice as well?

Very intriguing

This was quite original, and a good story. The relationship between mother and daughter could have been more involved, but overall very good listen

Gripping and unusual story.

Very easy to get in to and the story rolled along at a good pace - not always going where you expected, showing how things can get so mixed up and misconstrued. Believable characters - some real prog rock/hippy throwbacks. Good narrative on the way things were back then and the way they must seem to the younger generation now.

Not for me

I could not get on with this audiobook. The narrator was very stilted, pausing all the time.
The characters were all odious and I didn’t care what happened to them. The 10 year old girl was written as though she was 5 and so did not work for me.
Others seem to enjoy it but I could wait for it to finish.

Great listen

I had planned to only listen to this book when taking the dogs out. It took a couple of attempts to get into it but once it did I was hooked and I listened to it in great chunks over a couple of days. Good plot, interesting characters and very well narrated by Anna Bentinck. Another excellent Laura Wilson book!

Never really got going

This story was just very slow to get going and never really got off the ground for me I’m afraid. The plot twists were all clearly signposted and I was waiting for another one at the end, but it never came. Not one of my favourite listens.

Wrong girl title doesn’t suit this book

This just didn’t grip me, I kept going but it lacks the need to finish it
