Love this narrator and love the authors previous two books. this novel I struggled through a bit, the story was just a little too slow. I didn't connect with the characters as much
wonderful story .. had me hooked before the 1st chapter ended .. just buy it
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Most definitely yes

The Key, an unforgettable story of a heartbreaking secret that will stay with you forever.
😊 OMG If I could give this book more then 5 stars I would..It sure deserves it, Having read Kathryn Hughes other books “The letter” and “The secret” I couldn’t wait for this one to be released knowing that it would be just as beautifully written and heart a warming story as her other books.
Kathryn has created a even more beautiful, heart wrenching and moving story with this one.
Whilst researching into the abandoned Ambergate Asylum, Sarah discovers a suitcase in an attic belonging to a female patient who was admitted to the asylum fifty years earlier. The shocking contents lead Sarah to unravel a forgotten story of tragedy, lost love and an old wrong that only Sarah maybe able to put right. We then travel down the 1956 timeline of the Ambergate County Lunatic Asylum meeting Ellen Crosby, a student nurse starting her first day at work.
The 'then and now' works really well and easy to follow as they come together at the end in some shocking revelations. I was totally amazed by the brilliant twists all the though the story from the first chapter to the very last.
"The Key" ( just like Kathryn Hughes other books) is a totally amazingly engrossing, addictive and emotional story that you wont want to stop listening to.
It will leave you both smiling and sad as you follow the life’s of the amazingly thought of characters that will sure stay will you long after you finish listening.👌🏼😊 Make sure to have some tissues at hand for the last few chapters you will need them.
The author always knows how to capture the hearts of the readers and she has certainly succeeded again with this powerful well written beautiful book. ❤️

Would have rated it 5 if it was not so slow to get started. Very well read.
Loved this, Joanne Froggatt’s narration was fantastic and story are beautiful and captivating.
I chose the novel because I had just listened to The Silent Child narrated by Joanne. I’m so glad I did.
Would have loved to have known if Ellen and Ed ever met Amy and Joe.
Thanks for a great read.
Beautifully written original story narrated by one of UKs best talents, loved it
