The Pearl Locket Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
We’ll meet again....
When Ali inherits her great-aunt’s house, she immediately moves her whole family in, despite the warnings that there is something strange about the place.
Unfazed, Ali begins redecorating, going through the rooms, making each one her own with the help of her daughter, Kelly. But when under the wallpaper in Kelly’s new room they discover a scrawled message from 1944, Ali begins to question the history of the house as she knows it.
Her family has always seemed so picture perfect, not a blemish or a secret to be found. Yet, this discovery throws her into confusion, and Ali begins to question exactly what she knows about her family and the mysteries they have kept hidden....
Perfect for fans of The Emerald Comb, Rachel Hore and Kate Morton.

It didn't take me long to be drawn into the stories of Joan & her family & her sweetheart Jack in 1944 and that Ali and her family in present day.
I thought the story was brilliantly well written, it's clear from the details within as to just how much research the author Kathleen must have done, she really has done a magnificent job. As for the characters they were all so very well portrayed and believable, I really did just lose myself within all of their individual stories. I truly felt for Joan in the past, all that she had to deal with/go through, not to mention the sacrifice she had to make.
I really enjoyed how the story in the past was focused around the period of the Second World War, as not only is it interesting/insightful but it makes me think and learn all about how it must have been all those years ago.
So last words, if you love books that tell a story in the present and in the past then I can highly recommend this beautiful story which is heartbreaking, emotional, shocking, dramatic, gripping, suspenseful and will keep you on the edge of your seat right to the very last chapter.
Only one thing I would say to the author - please stop using the phrase "...let out a breath he/she hadn't realised they were holding..." and comments similar to: "someone was crying, it was a moment before she realised it was her own voice." They are so over used lately it seems as if every book (not just yours) I read has them in.
The WW2 story is all rather predictable, girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy enlists and goes off to war, boy is reported missing presumed killed in action, girl finds out she's pregnant......something that has been written far too many times and in far too many novels.
The modern day story is more intriguing though somewhat far fetched with hints of ghosts and long lost cousins living next door but all in all it is an entertaining read. I enjoyed it and would recommend it
A brilliant story right til the end.I hope to read more by this author
