Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Who would name a child Sunshine, then give her away?

Chrissie has always wanted to be a mother. After months of trying to adopt, she and her husband Stuart finally get the news that a little girl named Sunshine is waiting for them.

The child comes to them without a history, and it feels like a fresh start for all of them. But when fragments from Sunshine's previous life start to intrude on her new one, the little girl's mysterious past quickly becomes Chrissie's greatest fear....

A beautiful and compelling listen, this is a story of hope and love, about finding the perfect family and fighting to keep it, perfect for fans of Dawn French and Ruth Jones.

An unexpected treasure

This story had me captured from the start. It is a tale that unwinds in often surprising ways and the writer demonstrates her skill through her sensitive understanding of the many characters who contribute to the unfolding narrative. It’s a great story and I didn’t want it to end. The narration was good too and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the sunshine after a storm.
