I didnt know what to expect...so I was really pleasantly surprised that the story was so engaging. It wasnt a literary masterpiece and at times a little predictable. But I like listening while I walk and while I drive. This was it...reader was very good. Worth my credit for sure!
I did not want this book to end! The Witness grabbed my attention at the very beginning and it continued throughout the book. My only review is that I would have liked to have learned more about the mother and why Liz did not try to contact her to find out why mom was so spitfull. I would have liked to have Elizabeth ream her out! The is all I have to say. READ IT!
Did not read the print version, but the narration provided a second level to the understanding of the story. Julia Whelan is a great vocal artist and I plan to look for other titles narrated by her
In some ways it reminds me of A Night over Water, by Ken Follett. In both novels the main character, a young woman, is confronted with the need to make her own choices, to act against Power, if you will.
Ms Whelan mastered the accents and speech patterns very well. Although I thought her primary narration of the thoughts of the main character were great, I particularly enjoyed her ability to perform the parts of more incidental characters with regional accent.
I think it would make a great Lifetime made for TV movie. The tag line would be a tough call, and it would take a lot more thinking
I bought this by accident...thought it was a different book. But I ended up liking it. Very strong story and performed in a compelling manner.
