Joanne Froggatt gave the narration of this novel. Her performance was exceptional, especially her way of modulating her voice aptly for different characters that she played.
Emma Price, the prime character of this novel watched helplessly just as the red coat of her 6-year old son was taken out of the River Ouse.
It was a very tragic story in the summer of 2006. Aiden, a little young boy wandered away during a flood and fell right into the river. He drowned. His body was never able to recover. Emma was quite traumatized after the incident and it took her 10 years to rediscover the joy in her life. She married again, got pregnant, and now she is in full control of her life until Aiden makes a return.
His appearance raised a lot of questions and he was too traumatized to speak. Does the main question always remain that where he has been for all those 10 years? What happened with him on that rainy afternoon when he left school? Who he can trust now after making a return.
The book will bring all your deep emotions with great action over and over again. The book was rightly given the winner of the Audible Narrator of the Year Award in 2017. The performance of Joanne took this novel to the next level.
