The world is a puzzling, sometimes frightening place for Jessica Fontaine. As a child she only finds contentment in playing the piano and wandering alone in the empty spaces of Audlands Hall, the dilapidated country house where she grows up.

Twenty-five years later, divorced, with her son still living at home, Jessica remains preoccupied by the desire to create space around her. Then her volatile ex-husband reappears, the first of several surprises that both transform Jessica's present and give her a startling new perspective on the past... Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leon | 11/27/2013

    " I enjoyed this book, so much. At first I didn't really get it why Jess was so uncommunicative as a child. And also why she fell for Andrew, who was such a prick, to her, and everybody. At the ending I did, when we learn she also had a mild form of Asbergers, as did her son. "

    " uh..dont really like this book, though..but, i would give it four stars because i can actually feel the characters..and the book is somehow quite..quiet! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mik | 11/25/2013

    " Loved this one. Amazing characterisation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 11/7/2013

    " This is the first of Clare Morrall's books I've read. I enjoyed the story as I could relate to the main character and the setting as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carey Combe | 9/28/2013

    " Another engrossing read, with wonderful characters who you can't fail to be intrigued by. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 12/30/2012

    " The first fictional take on studying music at Birmingham uni that I've come across - fascinating in that respect alone. But also intriguing because of the mystery surrounding the personalities of the main characters and how they came to be who they are. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Makai | 11/14/2012

    " Work-related, writing my dissertation on it. Deftly written and subtle in characterisation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nina | 8/12/2012

    " I loved Astonishing splashes of colour, but this wasn't nearly as good. "

    " Boring, boring, boring... "

    " Too life-like, you know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Stevens | 9/5/2011

    " I picked this up at the library - what a good find! A 'nice' book, no bad language that I remember and the ending was unpredictable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mona | 8/23/2011

    " This is an enjoyable, engrossing read. Morrall has a good plot and it is well-paced, the story spread out evenly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 8/7/2011

    " Recommend this book, a very good read "

    " woman who always fet detatached - had a bad relatiponship with her husband, and a remote one with her son - later realised she and her son had asperges. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kamile | 6/5/2011

    " Great book. Easy to follow, lovely memorable characters, believable and heartfelt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 5/20/2011

    " Engaging novel about loss and recovery, with a surprising appearance by The Group of Seven. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsty | 12/8/2010

    " I found this quite an odd story, but, like the rest of Clare Morrall's books, really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 10/22/2010

    " Kept me interested till the end. I read it on holiday in Turkey and went for a swim between chapters "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 sisterimapoet | 10/13/2010

    " A good gripping read, showing how small decisions lay paths that are hard to deviate from. The main strength of this for me was the way it focused mainly on the woman left behind as opposed to the man who disappeared. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 9/16/2010

    " Really liked the characters in this, and the story was great too, seemed to lack somewhere though to mean it wasn't quite a cracker, can't quite put my finger on it though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 9/5/2010

    " I really enjoyed this. My only annoyance was that I didn't understand why there was so much media attention surrounding the case. I guess there had to be for the story to work but it just didn't really make sense.
    "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Catherine | 8/19/2010

    " Read this one as a quick summer read. And it was quick, and it was easy. Can't say that it will ever be one of my faves, but it was interesting. I especially liked to see the mother's role in the family, and how she didn't know how strong she really was until it was all tested. So true... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iheke | 8/12/2010

    " This is a frightfully clever book but you can't help thinking that more could have been done with it. Also, the book feels heavily weighted towards a female audience. That said, it was a good story well told and well worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carey | 7/31/2010

    " From her first brilliant book - Astonishing Splashes of Colour - Morrall never disappoints, realistic with some great characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 7/31/2010

    " Read as part of a bookclub list - it is a good enough story and its well written but it lacked any real spark for me "
