Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Trick to Time by Kit de Waal, read by Fiona Shaw. 
Mona is a young Irish girl in the big city, with the thrill of a new job and a room of her own in a busy boardinghouse. On her first night out in 1970s Birmingham, she meets William, a charming Irish boy with an easy smile and an open face. They embark upon a passionate affair, a whirlwind marriage - before a sudden tragedy tears them apart. 
Decades later, Mona pieces together the memories of the years that separate them. But can she ever learn to love again? 
The Trick to Time is an unforgettable tale of grief, longing, and a love that lasts a lifetime.

Simply beautiful

Mesmerisingly beautiful. A heartbreaking tale that I couldn’t put down.

The reader is taken into Desdemona’s world and falls completely in love with this kind and gentle woman to whom life has dealt a cruel hand.
