Where The Story Starts

Where The Story Starts Review

A strange encounter. An unlikely friendship. But will it survive when they both know the truth?

As single mother Leah struggles to get her children ready one morning, the doorbell rings. Standing on the doorstep of their terraced house in Whitley Bay is a well-dressed stranger, Clio, who feels an emotional tie to the house that she can’t explain. The story should end there, but a long-buried secret is already on its way to the surface…

In some ways the two women couldn’t be more different: Leah’s a mother of two and the daughter of a barmaid; Clio’s a perennially single heiress to her baroness mother’s estate. But where Leah lacks grown-up company, Clio lacks any experience of the real world, and the unlikely friendship sparked by their curious first meeting offers both of them a welcome respite from the routine of their lives.

It is a friendship that will answer questions neither of them knew to ask, uncovering secret stories from the past that have stayed hidden for decades. But will it also be the catalyst for them to finally feel that they belong?

    I was torn on my rating for this book. The story was completely predictable from very early in, and the characters were a bit one dimensional. However, it was quite an easy and enjoyable read....

    This was an easy novel to sink into, which is not always the case with me lately. I wasn't sure where the story was going, but I was along for the ride and I was rewarded with strong characterization ...

    Largely predictable and unsatisfying. I might have enjoyed a little more insight into Charles' story. It's possible that I might have hated him a little less if I could have read some of his anguish a...
