Publisher's Summary

Evie Hamilton has a secret . . . one she doesn't even know about. Yet . . .

Evie's an Oxfordshire wife and mum who's biggest worry in life is whether or not she can fit in a manicure on her way to fetch her daughter from clarinet lessons. But she's blissfully unaware that her charmed and happy life is about to be turned upside-down.
For one sunny morning a letter lands on Evie's immaculate doormat. It's a bombshell, knocking her carefully arranged and managed world completely askew and it threatens to sabotage all she holds dear.

What will be left and what will change forever? Is Evie strong enough to fight for what she loves? Can her entire world really be as fragile as her best china?

"Classy, wonderfully gossipy and breathless"(Red)
"We defy you not to get caught up in Alliott's life-changing tale" (Heat)

A Wonderful Reading of The Secret Life!


I LOVED this book and Caroline Doughty's narration of it is simply marvelous! How exhausting it must be to not only read all of those pages but to actually capture the various characters (male and female), the personalities, tones and imagery, While Catharine Alliott created the prose and painted the scenes beautifully, Caroline Doughty brought it all to life!! How Caroline was able to keep all of the individuals straight and consistent in her rendition of their characters is hard to imagine??!! Wonderful job, really!! I have one hour left, and I will be sad to be finished!! Listen and enjoy this charming story.

Fun Beach Read

A very sweet story - light and frothy, but with some real twists and turns. Relatable characters and some laugh out loud moments. At first I thought the narrator was a bit flat, but I warmed to her voice by the end.

Slow

I couldn’t finish this book. I’m not sure if it was the narrator or the storyline.
