This was only my second audio book and now I'm hooked, because of the way the story kept me enthralled every minute.
This would be a spoiler,but when we find out the true parentage off the little girl.
i listened out of order part 2 first didnt know till the end when i started part one but it is writen in 3 time frames so the skipping around was not so out of order but you wouldnt want to listen to part 3 first or your head would spin as the peices of the puzzle begin to fall into place i wouldnt call it inspirational as far as content !not a childs story ! but not graffic or strogly sugestive but some of the content would not be fit for young readers complicated to explain but i enjoyed the book greatly and will listen agian after i get over the stunning story of Eliza Makepeace and the preformance flowed well did not bore or erritate
I really enjoyed this book and how it fired my imagination. It was sometimes difficult to follow the jumping time lines within the story, but easy enough to get back on track. The narrator had some accent slips between the Australian accent and the British, but it wasn't too distracting.
I really enjoyed the tale that Morton wove and it had just enough twists and turns and mystery about it that I enjoyed working with the characters to figure out the details.
I found this book to be a real treasure. I am sure I will listen to it again. The book is intriguing, but not complicated.The characters are well developed, and enjoyable.The book moves at nice pace, interesting all the way through.
I loved every minute or this story and the narration was excellent. At first I thought this will be a long one but I was sorry when it finished. Highly recommended.
I wasn't sure at first -- then the book really started to develop. I was sure I had figured out the ending when it took a twist. It twisted around even again. Loved the book and I thought it very well done. Definitely recommended.
This is a story that takes you through mutiple generations in an attempt to seek ones true identity. Expect to be kept interested. Expect the unexpected. Just when you think you got it.... a new discovery.... a new revelation proves otherwise. For me Lisa was my favorite character. A women full of compassion and love but seen differently and treated badly yet still giving. This book does take you back and forth between generations so be prepared for that aspect of it. Get past that and you have a book that you have a hard time putting down.
Enjoyed the story very much! I loved the suspense of the story and the characters have clung to me weeks after I finished the novel. Some of the story line needed more development, especially the characters and some of the dramatic changes in personality/temperament. I enjoyed the performance very well.
I love, love, loved this novel. I also loved the narrator. In fact, I adored Caroline Lee so much after these three novels that I was disappointed to find that she hasn't narrated anything else. I really enjoyed the fairy-tale theme woven throughout the book. It was wonderfully engaging.
