Set in the seediest back alleys of King’s Cross, this is the story of a young woman new to the Cross trying to make a living on the streets. One night, she breaks all her rules and goes home with a customer only to find a situation that will change her life forever. Across the country, on a remote farm, Doug and Sarah are grieving for their lost boy. It was every parent’s nightmare when their son went missing at the Easter Show and they are struggling to survive as a family. Pete is the local policeman who feels powerless that he and his colleagues have been unable to find little Lockie and he’s trying desperately to keep Doug and Sarah together. Told from alternating viewpoints this is a powerful story of love and survival and although the ending was extremely unlikely, I don’t care. Just once, we need to believe in happy endings.

This sounds gripping and I'm glad its got a happy ending or else I don't think I could read it

Wow - this sounds like a very powerful harrowing tale. I would like nothing better than to curl up on the couch in front of the fire and devour this. Thanks for another great review Kerre - keep them coming!

Hi Kerre, generally great reviewing but this one is very much a schoolbook copy of the main review!

What a 'couldnt put down' book. You just kept hoping for a happy ending..... I work in a book shop and will have no trouble selling this great book.

This sounds like a compelling read. I can't wait to do so. Extra nice if it does have a happy ending too.

Sounds good Kerre, will have to be my next fiction book purchase.

This looks like a fantastic book. I'm pleased to hear that there is a happy ending as not all of these tragic stories end in disaster.
