    Description

    An enthralling story about love, motherhood and choosing who you belong to in the world by best-selling author Kimberley Freeman.

    1874: only days before she is to leave the foundling home where she grew up, Agnes Resolute discovers that, as a baby, she had been abandoned with a small token of her mother: a unicorn button.

    Agnes always believed her mother had been too poor to keep her, but after working as a laundress in the home she recognises the button as belonging to Genevieve Breckby, the beautiful and headstrong daughter of a local noble family. Agnes had seen Genevieve once, in the local village, and had never forgotten her.

    Despite having no money, Agnes will risk everything in a quest that will take her from the bleak moors of Northern England to the harsh streets of London, then on to Paris and Ceylon. As Agnes follows her mother's trail, she makes choices that could cost her dearly. Finally, in Australia, she tracks Genevieve down. But is Genevieve capable of being the mother Agnes hopes she will be?

    What an adventure!!

    Engaging from the very start. Filled with adventure, love (lost and found) and discovering what and where home really lies. Hey laughed and cried throughout the story. One of the best I’ve listened to in a while!!

    Stars Across the Ocean

    If the ratings went up to a 10 this book would warrant it hands down!! It was perfectly written with just the right amount of mystery ,exceptional characters and three stories woven into one. Jennifer Vuletics narration was exceptional!!!!!! I will eagerly search for other books by then both!!!

    I kept reading

    The plot was unpredictable and predictable. The heroin made stupid decisions, had a hard start turn out just fine. Then she went to another adventure and did it again. BUT the new places and who showed up where were pretty surprising. The ending was happy. I like happy endings. Don't read this book if your looking for a literary accomplishment but if you want a light feel good story with love and adventure in an old fashion way read and enjoy. You won't remember it for long but that's ok.

    A dramatic story

    I did enjoy this book, but I found the trips backwards and forwards in time a little confusing at times It came to a very satisfactory conclusion though with all the threads tied up neatly.

    Great Story

    Although a predictable plot, I enjoyed the book. I liked the protagonist and her unique indefatigable determination. I rarely see women of the era portrayed this way. The author is terrific. I gave her only 4* due to her native Australian accent breaking through when it was supposed to be English. I found it distracting.

    Loved the story and narration

    This book features the stories of three women, woven artfully together in a plot that had me setting aside things I should be doing to listen attentively. The twists and turns never felt contrived, as so many books do, and the characters were interesting and unique--never dull, never caricatures. The narration was skillful too, and I'll be looking for more books by both author and narrator.

    Sappy and predictable

    Could not finish, even while increasing the audio speed. Don’t know why it gets such a good rating.

    Dang!

    Would have liked this so much more if the time switches were clearer and sometimes I did even know what continent they were in. But a great story.

    Beautiful

    I just don’t wanted this book to end, yet the ending was as wonderful and heart touching as you could wish for without being too schmoozy. Admittedly I had some problems first to find my way into the three different story lines of the book but the more I heard the more it drew me in. All three lines are woven into each other and it is part of the joy to see them come closer and closer together. The narrator is definitely my favorite - i could hear her hours for hours. Thank you for a wonderful audio experience.
