Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Ice Cream Girls, The Woman He Loved Before, and My Best Friend's Girl, an emotional story about love, identity, and the meaning of family.
‘Where are you coming from with that accent of yours?’ he asks.
‘Nowhere,’ I reply. ‘I’m from nowhere.’
‘Everyone’s from somewhere,’ he says.
‘Not me,’ I reply silently.
Clemency Smittson was adopted as a baby, and the only connection she has to her birth mother is a cardboard box hand decorated with butterflies. Now an adult, Clem decides to make a drastic life change and move to Brighton, where she was born. Clem has no idea that while there she'll meet someone who knows all about her butterfly box and what happened to her birth parents.
As the tangled truths about her adoption and childhood start to unravel, a series of shocking events cause Clem to reassess whether the price of having contact with her birth family could be too high to pay....

Koomson doesn't disappoint

Loved this book. This is the first audio book I've had and I was unsure if it was my thing but was struggling to find time to read the things I wanted.
This book really is great. I'm always apprehensive reading a new book by an author I really like as I worry that it won't be as good as the previous ones. Having read My Best Friends Girl (My favourite book) and Goodnight Beautiful I had this fear but Koomson catches your interest immediately.
This is definitely being added to my list of favourite books.

Thoroughly enjoyable

A bit slow to start, but can't stop listening once you're into it. Lots of twists and turns, so it keeps one captivated
