In a red brick mansion block off the Marylebone Road, Vivien, a sensitive, bookish girl grows up sealed off from both past and present by her timid refugee parents.

Then one morning a glamorous uncle appears, dressed in a mohair suit, with a diamond watch on his wrist and a girl in a leopard-skin hat on his arm. Why is Uncle Sandor so violently unwelcome in her parents' home?

This is a novel about survival - both banal and heroic - and a young woman who discovers the complications, even betrayals, that inevitably accompany the fierce desire to live. Download and start listening now!

    " Interesting enough - my first ebook. Easy read, intersting topics themes were recent enough to be able to understand and relate to "

    " It was fine, really. I think I was more annoyed with the main character than I should have been, for reasons beyond anyone's control. But she was kind of lame. And I felt cheated when I didn't get to hear more about the side stories, which were the most interesting part. So... eh. "

    " I couldn't put this book down. Haven't read a page turner like this since "Kite Runner". "

    " Not a perfect book, but the main character is compelling - about a time in British/London that I know little to nothing about. "
