In the dead of night, Ayesha takes her daughter, Sabina, and slips quietly from her home, leaving behind a life full of pain. Boarding a coach to London, all Ayesha wants is a fresh start.
Hayden, a former popstar, has kept himself hidden away for years. He’s only opened up his home to two people – Crystal, a professional dancer with a heart of gold, and Joy, an ill-tempered retiree with a soft spot for waifs and strays.
When Crystal asks Hayden if Ayesha and Sabina can stay with them, he reluctantly agrees and, as different as they may be, they quickly form an unlikely bond. So when enemies threaten their peaceful home, they will do all they can to save it and each other.
What can I say Carole Matthews has done it again. A very moving read, one that will stay with me forever. Carole seems to bring real life situations into her book but with a great deal of sympathy. The character I liked the most was little Sabina. She had been through so much and seen so much and she came out of it such a sweet happy child. I think Suresh got what was comming to him as I didn’t like him one bit. Carole Matthews has done it again. What a remarkable read!
