Summary

Amanda King and Tess Cuffe are strangers who share the same Georgian house, but their lives couldn't be more different. Amanda seems to have it all, absolute perfection. She projects all the accoutrements of a lady who lunches. Sadly, the reality is a soulless home, an unfaithful husband and a very lonely heart. By comparison, in the basement flat, unwanted tenant Tess has spent a lifetime hiding and shutting her heart to love. It takes a bossy doctor, a handsome gardener, a pushy teenager and an abandoned cat to show these two women that sometimes letting go is the first step to moving forward and new friendships can come from the most unlikely situations.

Sweet Story

A wonderfully uplifting story of second chances and it never being too late. The narrator is one of my favourites and she was spot on as always.

I loved the story of Tess and Amanda and how life's knocks had changed them. Definitely recommend this book and Faith Hogan is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. I love Aoife McMahon's narration

Good story and narration

Really enjoyed this book.. Lots of different characters with there own story. Not the usual love story. Unpredictable so keeps you interested. The narration is good too with a lovely Irish accent.

Great book, great narrator.

Great book to listen to, made all the more interesting due to the brilliant narrator.
The story revolves around the lives of two very different women a generation apart in age and from very different backgrounds, but whose lives are brought together by differing but tragic circumstances.
Well written, well narrated.
A joy to listen to.
