Really good book, with a fantastic twist :-)

Ms. SUSAN LEWIS portrayed herself as a mother, father, daughter, son, and a friend in a heartwarming and mind blowing novel!!! Julia Cowan Thayne is a valued, strong, and loving wife, a caring mother to her kids, and a beautiful woman. She is living happily with her kids and her successful, loving husband, Joshua 'Josh' Thayne. Julia is constantly happy in her life but the past keeps haunting her and because of that, she had hard time pulling herself together. The ghost of Julia's past moved into their marriage and they find themselves losing the struggle to keep their relationship stronger. She wants to know the real reason behind her father's (Douglas 'Dougie' Cowan) abandonment. --- THEN TWO PHONE CALLS CHANGED EVERYTHING. As for a fourteen-year-old, this'll be a giant ball of boredom haha but I totally enjoyed reading the book. Strong emotions are poured out on each pages and everything's well-written... The book is truly astounding, surprising, and mystifying! The so-called 'twists' and 'revelations' are perfectly unpredictable and uplifting. I can't say that it's a book for all ages, but if you're matured enough... Hahaha. The story is nearly close to reality, (well, I think this has happened in real life haha.) I think Miss Susan Lewis is now one of my favorite authors... :-)

Good book over real life and a possible real marriage/family situation. Husband and wife problems as well as teenage daughter problems. Nicely written with a few plot twists and turns that weren't expected. Plus a red Porsche!


Good read, really enjoyed it.


This is so far my favourite novel by Susan Lewis. I thoroughly enjoyed this, & found it very hard to put down.

I really enjoyed this. Like all the other Susan Lewis books I have read, they do make you want to say "Ooooh I say" in places. The so-called 'twists' were predictable but it was still a very enjoyable read.


This book was amazing. I loved all the characters and was thrilled with the plot and the way it twisted away from the expected. Another brilliant Susan Lewis about being a mother, daughter, wife and lover - and being hurt or betrayed by those close to you. I could relate fully to the main character in this book and would greatly advise you to read this story.


This is a really good page turner, brilliant!


Great book!!! Lots of twists and turn, not easy to put down and very easy to read.


I thought the synopsis sounded really quite good but this turned out to be not my kind of book at all. Cliched and predictable...very predictable, and with thoroughly unlikeable characters. Disappointing.


Good Book. Easy to read and keeps you hooked

this was a brilliant read i've only read a few of susan lewis's books but i really like her as an author.


i was disappointed with this book as felt the characters were unbelievable and the plot far fetched.


Just a really good novel, well written and a lovely storyline in a beautiful setting - I felt that I was there....
