This is the kind of story that I love. The characters were all very three dimensional and real. There was a a bit of supernatural in a very natural world and an intriguing amount of mystery. I highly recommend.

The novel keeps you guessing until the end. The narrator does a good job conveying the accents of the characters as well.

and the moral of this fairy tale is "Never accept rides from strangers". A very interesting book which will stick in your mind.
Every time I think of this book, I remember another aspect of the story/performance that I love.
At first I wasn't sure how I felt about John Lee's narration, but as I continued to listen, the tone seemed to be a perfect fit for the story. Somehow simultaneously mundane and other-worldly.
Some of my favorite scenes that I don't think have been mentioned by other reviewers include Richie's interactions with Peter's family and the relationship that develops between Peter's son and the elderly next door neighbor (probably my favorite character).
As I'm writing this review, I'm realizing this book deserves a repeat listen.
The entire plot has one wondering if it is truth or fiction about Tara. Hauntingly well written , one finds oneself wanting it to be true or maybe not? I listened to the book last week but it has a memorable presence in my mind. I am not a sci-fi fan and this is not strictly that. Listen and understand how a tale can be woven of complex fabic.
First, I loved the gentle accent and then the plot with its twists and turns. Not every aspect is spelled out such as how Yarrow can survive a death blow and were Tara and Yarrow lovers? so it kept me coming back for more.
Nice accent and gentle words.
No suggestion. Perfect name
Never written a review before but had to do so with this book.
While there was some obvious things, I really liked some of the twists and turns. The quotes from all different sorts of people plus the "historical" account of the wife was supposedly switched with a fairy. I don't know if it was true or not but it was a nice detail and added believability.
The most memorable moment was the ending, both the ending and the epilogue ending.
I admit I thought I was getting a bit more of the fairyland than the book presented but I liked how grounded it was in the human world.
I will admit readily that the superior reading and wonderful accents were one of the main reasons I bought the book, and both did not disappoint.
