Publisher's Summary

Zoe knows that it wasn't really her fault. Of course it wasn't. But if she'd just grasped harder, run faster, lunged quicker, she might have saved him. And Edward doesn't really blame her, though his bitter words at the time still haunt her, and he can no more take them back than she can halt the car that killed their son.
Two years on, every day is a tragedy. Edward knows they should take healing steps together, but he's tired of being shut out. For Zoe, it just seems easier to let grief lead the way.
A weekend in Paris might be their last hope for reconciliation, but mischance sees them separated before they've even left Gare du Nord. Lost and alone, Edward and Zoe must try to find their way back to each other - and find their way back to the people they were before. But is that even possible?

Tragic story

A story of tragedy and grief. A little long and repetitive. Female narrator was a bit harse to listen to. I found myself skipping parts. Okay for a few bucks.

Redundant & un-intriguing

Would you listen to another book narrated by Simon Mattacks and Henrietta Meire ?

Yes

What character would you cut from Who We Were Before?

All of them, or definitely redefine their roles.

Any additional comments?

A bit redundant, drug out and obvious for my taste. It doesn't compare at all to it's competitors.<br/><br/>Unfortunately, I cannot recommend.

It was fine

Would you try another book written by Leah Mercer or narrated by Simon Mattacks and Henrietta Meire ?

I like the idea of the story but I don't feel that it acheived it full potential.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The idea of being lost in a strange place was interesting although asking someone for help would have sorted it out a lot quicker.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The female narrator was a little annoying, it sounded a bit unnatural, like she was reading it from a sheet for the first time.

Did Who We Were Before inspire you to do anything?

Go back to Paris.

Any additional comments?

I didn't dislike the book but I felt dissatisfield once I'd finished it.

i enjoyed the structure, gradually unfolding in response to events and stimuli. easy to listen to voices, expressive and convincing. l am sorry to have finished it.
