Audio Fiction

Finished June 16
Family Connections by Anna Jacobs, read by Nicolette McKenzie
Haven't tried this author before, but it was on the new book shelf, and I needed something to listen to, so I grabbed it.
The story follows a few characters in Perth, Australia and in the Blackpool area of England that end up meeting up by the end. Gina Porter is sorting through the belongings of her recently deceased father when she comes across documents indicating that Gina's mother was his second wife and there is another family back in England. Also in Perth, Brad decides to take early retirement and travel to England when he learns that he has a daughter there (a result of a short dalliance years before).
In England, Lou defies her grandfather and mother and leaves for Australia with her boyfriend, intending to find her great-grandfather. Also in England, Peggy is finding it increasingly difficult to live with her domineering husband and seeks assistance at a local woman's wellness centre.
Lots of plot, and family stories, with drama and romance thrown in.
I enjoyed it, as a light entertaining read.
