How far would you go to protect your children?

Catherine is a good mother and a good wife. The family home is immaculate, her husband’s supper is cooked on time, but when she starts writing to Michael, a prisoner convicted of murder, she finds herself obsessing about his crime and whether he can ever truly be forgiven….

Kate has no time for herself. Caught in the maelstrom of bringing up two young children with an out-of-work husband, she longs to escape the drudgery of being a wife and a mother. Soon, she starts taking dangerous risks to feel alive….

Alison has flown the nest. But university life is not what she had hoped for, and she finds herself alone and unhappy – until the day her professor takes a sudden interest in her. Then, everything changes….

Three women – all with secrets. And as the days tick down to Michael’s release, those secrets can no longer be ignored. A gripping psychological suspense thriller, with a twist that will leave you reeling.

perennial unsophisticated

This was a meandering story of the lives of three women. I can’t say too much without giving away the twist. I can say that after finishing this book, I might go back and listen again … now that I know the ending. The narration was very good.
