Random House presents the audiobook edition of Never Greener by Ruth Jones, read by Sharon Small.

In her unmissable debut, actress and screenwriter Ruth Jones shows us the dangers of trying to recapture that which was once lost and failing to realise the beauty of what we already have.


‘We spend most of our lives wishing we were somewhere else or someone else, or looking forward or harping back. Always thinking the grass is greener on the other side. But it never is. It’s still grass. Just a different patch of it, that’s all.’


The past has a habit of tracking us down. And tripping us up.

When Kate was twenty-two, she had an intense and passionate affair with a married man, Callum, which ended in heartbreak. Kate thought she’d never get over it.

Seventeen years later, life has moved on – Kate, now a successful actress, is living in London, married to Matt and mother to little Tallulah. Meanwhile Callum and his wife Belinda are happy together, living in Edinburgh and watching their kids grow up. The past, it would seem, is well and truly behind them all.

But then Kate meets Callum again.

And they are faced with a choice: to walk away from each other . . . or to risk finding out what might have been.

Second chances are a rare gift in life. But that doesn’t mean they should always be taken . . .

‘Ruth Jones is excellent on human nature and why we make the mistakes we do. I felt for every character. Unputdownable.’ Jojo Moyes, bestselling author of ME BEFORE YOU

Really well crafted story, no wasted words. Excellent clear narration that compelled me to keep listening. Not listened a Ruth Jones book before, will certainly be interested in other titles now.

Absolutely brilliant, the empathy created for all the characters makes the book. I really hope to see this recreated on the big screen. Ruth Jones has brilliantly captured the pain and angst involved in our complex lives. Only a couple of errors in the narrative, involving train stations, but the remaining 99.999% was outstanding. Thank you
