A ten-year-old tragedy casts a dangerous shadow on the happiness of two families...
In Jinnie, the sequel to The Woman Who Left, Josephine Cox weaves an unforgettable saga of the lingering power of past betrayals. Perfect for fans of Rosie Goodwin and Dilly Court.
'If you are looking for a story with warmth, humanity and more then a touch of grit, you need look no further... warm and compelling family saga which is as welcome as a roaring fire on a freezing winter's day... never a moment when you are not put in touch with the passions of life' - The Northern Echo
Ten years ago, Louise Hunter's life was torn apart by tragedy. Her husband, Ben, killed himself; her brother-in-law, Jacob, was murdered; and her sister, Susan, abandoned her new-born daughter, revealing the baby is Ben's child. Louise remains haunted by guilt over the one night she spent with Ben's friend Eric, and refuses to return Eric's love. But after adopting Jinnie, she finds new happiness - until Susan decides she wants Jinnie back.
Meanwhile, Adam and Hannah, whose mother was killed with Jacob, are on the run. What Adam witnessed on that dreadful night has put them all in danger, but their beloved grandmother knows that one day they must return to the place where it all began...
What readers are saying about Jinnie:
'Kept me absolutely gripped from beginning to end - the kind of books that make you feel really sad when you come to the end and leave you wishing they could just go on and on'
'Super story, could not guess the ending - five stars'
Having first read The Woman Who Left I just had to read the sequel.
Suggest reading both.
Jinnie is very good with twists and turns everywhere. A very unusual and unpredictable ending.
