Publisher's Summary

When she was 9 years old, Melody Browne's house burned down, and it took all of her childhood memories with it. Now she's a single mother of a teenage boy living in Central London. She hasn't seen her parents since she left home at 15, but she doesn't mind. She's better off on her own. She works as a dinner lady at her son's school and has no idea where her humdrum life is heading. But one summer's night, a hypnotist inadvertently unlocks memories of her childhood, and her whole life is turned upside down. 

At first, these new memories mean nothing to her, but as Melody slowly begins to piece together the real story of her childhood, she begins to uncover mystery after mystery and wonders if she'll ever know the truth about her past...

Very twisted story

Well performed, well written story. It's an escape read, and not too difficult to listen.

Lisa Jewell classic!

This is one of the best Lisa Jewell books I’ve listened to. I’ve either read or listened to everything she’s ever written and if you love the sweeping family saga style writing that is classic Lisa Jewell you will really enjoy this one. True rich characters and a wonderful story.

A must !

I’ve listened to at least 7 of Lisa jewells books and enjoyed every one . This one was practically emotional for me as I lost my mother at a young age. I cried and laughed and throughly enjoyed every moment. Not wanting the story to end . A tale told perfectly . A must if you have loved her other books .

So much potential.....what a letdown!!!

I am really at a loss on how to rate this book. The narration was perfect! I haven't heard this narrator read before and I stand up and applaud this extremely talented voice artist. To be quite honest, it is more than likely the only reason that finished the book. Now, for the story itself...it grabbed my attention and kept me awake until the wee hours of the morning... I really felt like the story was going to bring everything together and really hit it out of the ballpark with an earth shattering ending...without giving anything away..I have to say that I was left thinking...really?? thats it?? There were SO many characters piled Into the story that just didn't need to be there. Nobody really served a purpose or added to the storyline. I have to say that I am truly disappointed and feel cheated out if my time and credit.

Great read

I must say the story started slow, I was slight wondering if the book was going to be a miss. It took awhile but it got you hooked and I ended loving it!! Lisa Jewell did it again!! I didn’t want it to end!
