Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Truth of Melody Browne, by Lisa Jewell.

Melody Browne can remember nothing before her ninth birthday. Now in her early 30s, Melody lives in the middle of London with her 17-year-old son. She hasn’t seen her parents since she left home at 15, but Melody doesn't mind. She’s better off on her own. 

And then fragments of her past start to come back. At first her memories mean nothing to her, but slowly, day by day, she begins to piece together the real story of her childhood. 

But with every mystery she solves, another one materialises; with every question she answers, another appears. And Melody begins to wonder if she'll ever know the truth about her past....

Compelling, sad, uplifting and very well told

The storyline jumps a little and can be confusing but stay with it. I love the friendships that Melody makes and also think the relationship with her son is wonderful. All the loose ends get tied up satisfyingly. A lovely heartwarming but devastating tale.

Captivating and Touching.

This was a touching story. It went on for a bit long and there were times when my concentration wandered, but all in all I was captivated, wondering what was going to happen next. I found it an intriguing, sweet book which all in all, I enjoyed. Give it a try.

Melody Brown

Unusual story...got a bit lost between time leaps but that's probably me...only one flickering brain cell left functioning.
Wonderfully convoluted...I always enjoy this writer's books. I will read more.

Was glad I saw it through

I really struggled with this book for a start, it seemed to take a long time to get me trapped in. I nearly gave up half way through but after reading all the good reviews I decided to stick it out. I did enjoy it in the end, some things were a bit far fetched( the amount of tragedy one person had been dealt). Otherwise it was very different story.

Good and not so good

The story was interesting enough with lots being revealed as the book unravels. The thing that marred the whole thing and ending for me was how spectacularly cruely the adoptive parents were portrayed.
