But if she has, will she be able to return to life as she knows it? If Jack Ruttle, her latest client and mystified by her own disappearance, has anything to do with it she will...

Reread/ listen because it’s always good :)

Read this book a few years ago and I never stop thinking about it. Listening to it again was like reliving a past memory. Such a fab story beautifully read.

Easy listen

Story is ok. You could pretty much guess the plot as you listened. No surprises or twists. Bit of fantasy.
