Publisher's Summary

I know what my husband would say: that I have too much time on my hands; that I need to keep myself busy. That I need to take my medication. Empty nest syndrome, he tells his friends at the pub, his mother. He's always said I have a vivid imagination.
Marta and Hector have been married for a long time – so long that she finds it difficult to remember her life before him. He has always taken care of her, and she has always done everything she can to be a good wife. But when Hector comes home with a secret, their ordered domestic life begins to unravel, and Marta begins to see things, or perhaps to remember them. In the shadows there is a blonde girl that only Marta can see. And she wants something .

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

I wanted to listen to this book because of the reader, Fenella Woolgar who I think is utterly brilliant and because of the positive reviews. However, I soon found myself researching again, to see if anyone had found this book boring beyond belief. Half way through I was still un-engaged. I eventually just about managed to listen to the entire story with my my "Stoic hat" firmly planted on my head and as the closing credits were read I thought "Well that's a whole chunk of time I will never get back again!"

Sadly a good idea but a dreary story

Two hours into this story I decided I didn't really care if Marta was mad or Hector was bad. There is clearly something odd going on but the setting is so dull and the characters are so unengaging that I didn't feel any sense of tension or desire to unravel the mystery.
