Summary

A little girl has been left for dead. And now my husband is missing.  "I can give you a lift home," the man says. Little Alice tightens the zip of her big red coat. She’s unsure, but the walk will be cold and dark. "I’m not supposed to get in a stranger’s car." He forces a smile. "I’m not a proper stranger, am I?" I return home to our beautiful house on a chilly winter evening expecting to find my handsome husband Richard waiting for me by the fire. We’re still so in love, and he always takes care of me: buying us this home in the little village where he grew up, making sure I settled in and made friends, and treating my teenage daughter like his own. There’s a bit of gossip about our age gap, but the death of his first wife years ago was so tragic that he still gets sympathetic looks. Everyone loves Richard. He usually comes straight back from work. But tonight, our antique clock ticks on through the dark evening, with no sign of him. Then a knock at the door shatters my perfect life. A 12-year-old-girl, Alice from the village, has been found unconscious in the field behind our house. They say she was last seen getting into Richard’s car. Now rumors are flying. As Alice fights for her life in the hospital, nobody will speak to me - and when they do it’s to ask if he didn’t hurt Alice, why hasn’t Richard come home? I know that revealing my own darkest secret about Richard’s first wife could prove his innocence...but even if I do, he’s still missing. Is everyone right, and is my husband on the run? And will telling the truth about my past turn my own daughter against me and tear our lives apart for good? Fans of The Girl on the Train, I Am Watching You, and Shari Lapena will adore this.

Summary

The face of the woman in the photograph was tilted upwards, as if enjoying the sunshine just for a moment, even as the wreckage of the bombed-out street lay behind her... Cornwall, 1944: Blinded by love, Vivienne Hamilton eloped to Paris with a Nazi prisoner-of-war, never to be seen again. A disgrace to her family, her name would not be mentioned by any of her relatives for over 75 years.  Present day, London: When Sophie discovers a photograph of her great aunt Vivi from World War II, it throws her into a world of confusion. Because, as she learns about this secret relative, she quickly realizes that the photograph doesn’t fit with her family’s story. It shows Vivi leaving an address associated with a spy network in London - a place she had no reason to be - and it is dated right before she disappeared.  Meanwhile Sophie’s own life feels as blasted and bombed as the blitzed city in the photograph she’s looking at. Her beautiful daughter - as full of joy and wild energy as Vivi had apparently once been - is gone; and Sophie’s heart has been left broken into pieces.  Retreating to the family home in rural Cornwall to seek solace from her pain and the feelings of guilt that she could have done more to protect her daughter, Sophie finds herself becoming obsessed with Vivi’s life.  But nothing can prepare Sophie for what she is about to uncover - the story of a woman who risked everything for the person she loved the most; and a secret family history that could be the key to Sophie’s own future.  A powerful, haunting and unforgettable audiobook about love, heartbreak and betrayal set in World War II Britain and France. Perfect for fans of The Nightingale, Under a Scarlet Sky, and My Name is Eva.  Listeners love Suzanne Kelman:  "A heart-wrenching story of ordinary people elevated to the realm of heroes through love and sacrifice...It is an emotional journey of heartache and love that will leave you in tears.

Summary

Auschwitz, 1943: In the depths of hell, can hope rise? And can love triumph over hatred?  Based on the unforgettable true story of Alma Rosé, The Violinist of Auschwitz brings to life one of history’s most fearless, inspiring, and courageous heroines. Alma’s bravery saved countless lives, bringing hope to those who had forgotten its meaning.... In Auschwitz, every day is a fight for survival. Alma is inmate 50381, the number tattooed on her skin in pale blue ink. She is cooped up with thousands of others, torn from loved ones, trapped in a maze of barbed wire. Every day people disappear, never to be seen again. This tragic reality couldn’t be further from Alma’s previous life. An esteemed violinist, her performances left her audiences spellbound. But when the Nazis descend on Europe, none of that can save her.... When the head of the women’s camp appoints Alma as the conductor of the orchestra, performing for prisoners trudging to work as well as the highest-ranking Nazis, Alma refuses: “They can kill me, but they won’t make me play”. Yet she soon realizes the power this position offers: She can provide starving girls with extra rations and save many from the clutches of death. This is how Alma meets Miklos, a talented pianist. Surrounded by despair, they find happiness in joint rehearsals, secret notes, and concerts they give side by side - all the while praying that this will one day end. But in Auschwitz, the very air is tainted with loss, and tragedy is the only certainty.... In such a hopeless place, can their love survive? This devastatingly heartbreaking yet beautifully hopeful tale proves that even in the darkest of days, love can prevail - and give you something to live for. Fans of The Choice, The Tattooist of Auschwitz, and The Orphan Train will lose their hearts to this magnificent tale.

A completely gripping psychological thriller  I pinch the screen to zoom until I’m staring at the face of a ghost. A man with very short hair, staring directly at the camera with piercing brown eyes. He is as he was when I last saw him: wrinkles around the corners of the eyes and a knowing smirk. That’s the expression I see when I can’t sleep.  My body tenses. It can’t be him. It’s not my ex-husband. It’s not David.  I know that better than anyone because he didn’t walk out on me.  He didn’t disappear two years ago and he’s not a missing person.  I know that for a fact because I’m the one who killed him. A brilliantly twisty thriller which will have fans of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl absolutely gripped.
