Yes I would recommend any and all of Kate Morton's books.
Other Kate Morton books.
Probably Eliza to get her full point of view.

Absolutely, I already have.
The storyline went back and forth between generations. Revealing the thoughts of characters. When you think you have the mystery figured out, you don't. Enchanting, surprising, heartfelt, made me care about the characters to the very last word. I didn't want it to end, Loved, loved this novel!!!
She gives a personality to every character. I forget the story is told by one person. Completely loved her voice, accent, and talent at giving each character their own unique voice. Caroline is the best.
Perfect title, don't change it.
Can't wait to hear my next Kate Morton, Caroline Lee book.
The narrator did an excellent job.
Elissa Magpiece. She had such a way with people. Liked †hat she did not try to conform, to fit in to society.
I liked the outdoor scenes along the ocean
The relationship that formed between Cassandra and Christopher
I had to pay attention to the chronological order of the book. It jumped around quite a bit. It was a little slow at times.
Yes! The story is complex and unpredictable, with a sweet ending. There are no dull chapters, and the narrator is awesome. I will look for other books she's done. I have already listened to The Secret Garden and highly recommend it. I never would have guessed the ending. I will be looking for other Kate Morton books. I would have preferred the profanity be left out, but it's minimal.
This is almost like an adult fairy tale...the reader's voice was perfect - could picture every scene in my mind like a movie. It was also a nice change of pace for me - no war, no history, no genocides...the book is sad for sure, but its just all over a good story.
This is a complicated story line that was worthy of a second look. The story kept me coming back for more. A second go round would surely prIovide even more insight into the story line.
I liked Cassandra as a character, because of her devotion to her grandmother and her perseverence to discovering the truth. She also showed growth because of her challenges. Second best would have to be Eliza, she too, seemed to grow through the story and met her challenges face on. I believe it is a tie between which I would have liked best!
Caroline Lee made the story seem real. While listening to this, I did not have to think about who was speaking or remember that it was a story being read. She managed to make the story alive while she read it.
Complicated Family Ties
I liked this book so well, that I forgot we had picked it for the book club and after reading it, recommennded it back to the book club!! There were so many facets to the story that it just held me transfixed from beginning to end.
Former English major who loves to read.
It will take you away. Need a break from your every day grind? Pick this up and find yourself far, far away.
I enjoyed listening to this book! I love the writer's style -- she describes things very well and made me feel like I was there. The story was entertaining and I looked forward to listening to it and missed it when I was done with the book. I would recommend it and will be looking for other Kate Morton books to read. There is a good deal of jumping around in time. At first it seemed annoying, but as the story went along, I got used to that and it actually worked pretty well.
I have a 3 hour commute to work every day so I listen to audiobooks to help with my drive. It's added some happiness to my day (if it's a good book)!
Yes, lovely story that was I really enjoyed!
Nell because she reminds me of my own grandmother
I could listen to her all day.
No extreme reaction except for the evil aunt.
This is one of my favorites so far. Kate Morton's stories and Caroline Lee's narration together are absolute magic.
The only comparison I have are other Kate Morton books. She is awesome! I haven't read anything that I would compare it to at this time.
Everything! I love the way she narrates the story ... you become totally immersed in the story. Her accents are fabulous in my opinion.
As always, it is the end where all the threads of the story are brought together to weave a beautiful tapestry! It is a story I will continue to think about. The fairy tales were magnificent too. Such a well written story! I can't say enough about this book. I was so sorry to see it end. Every character leaves a mark on you.
Give us more, Kate and Caroline! And thanks for the awesome stories!
