Publisher's Summary

'My name is Ruby. I live with Barbara and Mick. They're not my real parents, but they tell me what to do and what to say. I'm supposed to say that my bruises and black eye came from falling down the stairs. But there are things I won't say. I won't tell them I'm going to hunt for my real parents. I'm going to be with my real family. And I'm not going to let Mick stop me.'

Critic Reviews

"Kate Hamer's novel is both gripping and sensitive - beautifully written, it is a compulsive, aching story full of loss and redemption." (Lisa Ballantyne, on The Girl in the Red Coat)
"Moving, convincing and completely compelling. I read through the night, desperate to know the little girl's fate." (Erin Kelly, on The Girl in the Red Coat)

Struggled to finish

Georgia Maguire as always did an awesome job as the Narrator. I think she is why I finished the book.

Just didn't get it

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Maybe this is one of those books that would be better written down, but the audible version was rambling and incoherent and I'm afraid I gave up after 10 chapters.

A ghost too far

I really liked the first half of this book. It had a gritty authenticity that was impressive. But from then on we are dealing with ghosts and spirits and wild coincidences that left me cold.
