Publisher's Summary

Leisa Yeats has always defined herself by the things that are important to her - a good family, a loving relationship, and a meaningful job working with kids. Life is good. But within a span of a few weeks, all of that changes. She’s always known she was adopted, but newly revealed lies and secrets kept by her parents make her question everything she thought she knew about her beginnings. Her 10-year relationship with her partner, Nan, is unexpectedly on shaky ground when she discovers that Nan, too, has kept a secret from her all these years. 

Suddenly, everything Leisa believed - about her life, about the people around her, about herself - everything is turned upside down, and nothing is as she thought it was. Pulling away to try and sort things out, Leisa reaches out to the wrong people and, in the process, nearly loses herself. Buffeted at every turn by storms that shake the very foundation of her world, Leisa must figure out whom and what she can hold fast to as the winds of change blow.

I've always loved this story

I read this book a couple of years ago and now it is out in audio the narration has made it even better.

The reason I loved this story is that it has so many stories within one and so many themes. The theme of adoption, theme of trust and keeping secrets, the theme of rejection. The fact that the story is not about a couple who have just met, but about the struggles of a couple who have been together for ten years, when the honeymoon is over and, if you're not careful, you start taking each other for granted.

The narrator too suited this story, the different voices were distinct and just how I imagined the characters to be.

This is certainly an audio book I will be going back to.
