Summary

What price would you pay to save your marriage?

Ed and Kerry Huntington-Barnes have an idyllic life, with their 5-year-old twins, successful careers, a luxurious house and an affluent lifestyle. Yet the secrets they’re harboring force their separation.

Kerry is fighting her own demons, amongst which is the knowledge that she is the wrong gender for her husband to ever truly love her.

Parallel to this it the death of a local man, Russell Lawson, which affects both Ed and Kerry in different ways. Will his widow Davina, and the other shadows that surround their separation and Russell’s death, destroy their lives, and their sons’ lives even further? 

This is a story that portrays the darkness that can exist inside marriage and the hatred that can linger amongst families that are supposed to love each other

Amazing book!!!

So worth a listen! This story is told from the perspective of both the husband and wife, switching between them in short, snappy chapters that move briskly through the events of the story, giving all the details you need to feel for both sides. I loved it and couldn't find a fault with the writing, the story or the narration. I strongly recommend giving this story a try. Well worth it.

One of the best books ever

For some reason when it’s on the news a man name Russell Wilson was found dead in his hotel. For some reason this causes carols husband Ed to go off the rails. He starts drinking, sleeping at his office and all-around a different guy and as if he is a man with secrets. Only Carol has secrets of her own and before it’s over even the innocent will be touched by. I don’t want to give anything away as this book was so so good you will never ever guess the ending. I would be willing to bet $100 there’s no way you can guess the ending. I absolutely love this book and highly highly recommend it to those who love thrillers and mysteries. This is absolutely without a doubt the best book I have ever read.

Another great listen

Well what can I say - I look forward to another audible book from Maria Frankland and this narrator is very good (I do find the narrator can make or break my enjoyment - so I am thankful for yet another brilliant choice).

I listened to this in two days as needed to know what happened and it was worth it.

The twists and turns - three did not expect.

It is very interesting how attitudes are changing and well done for putting a spot light on this.
I was given an advance copy by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review which I have done.

FEMALE NARRATOR RUINS IT FOR ME...

I'm sure the story is a good one. I've listened to another book by this author, and I loved it. Unfortunately, the narrator for this book makes it impossible for me to continue. Her voice and horrible performance is too cringeworthy!!!!

It’s not what you think!

Wow! What an amazing ride! This book kept me wanting more and trying to guess the ending. There was no way I could ever have done that thanks to the skillful and clever writing.

The narration is great and makes the characters relatable.

I highly recommend this book. It was such an interesting read!

The Price of Jealousy and Hatred.

Left Hanging is an utterly phenomenally written book. Ed and his wife Kerry are having marital issues that stem from Ed's sexuality. Davina and her husband Russell lives become intertwined with that of Ed and Kerry's in the worst possible way. I will not give any spoilers I will only say that with hatred one not only loses themselves but other's may pay the price. Laura England did a fabulous job as narrator her voice helps you to feel the story as well as bringing it to life making it more real. I highly recommend this book because there are so many twist and turns it will keep you wondering until the very end. I received this book for free and this is my honest unbiased review.
