Now finished this great book. I would recommend it to any one who likes Jo Jo Moyes type books. I won't give anything away but will just say that it made me cry!!!

Thanks for my copy of the book. I've not heard of Amanda Brooke before and thus haven't read any of her previous books. Predictable but gripping none the less. I was more interested in discovering what happened to Ruby as opposed to the missing child Jasmine. The relationship between Sam and his landlady Selina was sweet and brought a touch of humour and light relief as the book covers serious issues like grief, domestic abuse, alcohol abuse and loneliness. I found the structure of this story frustrating especially at the beginning as it kept going backwards and forwards from present to past which for me disrupted the flow and gave the plot away.

Just finished reading this lovely book. I hadn't read any by this author before but now would like to read more by her! It was a story covering so many different things, including domestic abuse which was dealt with very sensitively, and Jasmine as a delight!
