From the bestselling author of Where the Story Starts comes a tale about dealing with the past--and finally facing the future. Pip Appleby seems to have it all, with her prestigious job as a human rights lawyer and her enviable London home. But then a tragic accident stops her life in its tracks, and in an instant everything changes. Retreating to her family's rural farm and the humble origins she has been trying to hide, Pip is haunted by what she has done. When she discovers the diary of actress Evelyn Mountcastle in a box of old books, Pip revels in the opportunity to lose herself in someone else's life rather than focus on the disaster that is her own. But soon she sees parallels--Evelyn's life was also beset by tragedy, and, like Pip, she returned to Southwold under a dark cloud. When Pip and Evelyn's paths cross in real life they slowly begin to reveal the hidden stories that are holding them back. Can they help each other forgive what happened in the past and, perhaps, find happiness in the future?

I listened to this one while on a quick weekend road-trip. It started slow but I hung in there and was rewarded with a very endearing story. I can‘t imagine being experiencing all of the trauma Evelyn went through, ugh. AND Pip‘s as well. But I will say, this was not a down in the dumps, depressing book!! Book #16 In 2022

This is a very simple story this is just beautiful. The biggest takeaway is forgiveness, for yourself and each other. Told through diary entries and conversations Clark gives us lovely story that will stay with you awhile and maybe even make you reflect on some of your pasts. I recommend this one highly.

I loved this story featuring two women at very different stages of life who have both suffered through tragic events that have left them scarred and guilt-ridden. While recovering at her parents‘ farm, Pip discovers a lost diary (early 80s) of Evelyn‘s at a charity shop. She is intrigued by their similar challenges/losses in life and tracks Evelyn down. Wonderful story of female bonding and healing when one has given up hope. 4.5/5⭐️
