I love Kate Morton's books but this has to be one of my favorite yet. It languidly rolls along with such beauty and interest. I needed a good long audible whilst I worked on remodeling our home. This was perfect. Beautifully written, however, as long as it is, if my mind wanders a bit during listening I haven't missed much.
I love the way the story goes back and forth between different eras. Kate Morton is a genius at this. I love how the ending was a surprise. It keeps you guessing as you go but I never figured it out until it was revealed.
Caroline Lee, as always, is impeccable and one of my favorite narrators.
Yes and no. It is a long book. I need to digest what I've listened to so it would be a bit much all at once.
Kaye Morton is quickly becoming my #1 choice for audio books. She weaves such interesting tales, with such surprise endings. And, Caroline Lee makes the story really come to life.
I was captivated from the beginning. The narrator did a great job. Being American I sometimes have trouble with English accents but not this one. The story kept my attention and it was difficult to put down! Quite surprised at the ending. Thought Larell might have had Jimmy as a father until it came to light Vivian was the heroine. The only inconsistencies were how Henry Jenkins was still alive and yet Vivian could bequeath their house to Jimmy's family and yet was safe from Henry or why Jimmy waited so long to look for Dorothy. Had it not been an audio book I would have looked back in the pages to see if I missed something!
This is probably one of the most clever, creative, and captivating stories I have read in a very long time. I was amazed at the circuitry and connections that ended up twisting and turning and coming back to each other throughout the story. Though a bit slow to get going it was worth staying with it because the reader will never be disappointed with the path, or should I say paths, the story takes. Never a predictable moment, and the mysteries within the story never become predictable.
The mystery is well-written and plausible. I enjoyed the story, character development, writing and narration. I was not disappointed by the ending, which has, unfortunately, rarely been the case of late. A great listen.
I cannot express how much I loved this book. This is the second book that I have read of the author's and will forever be a fan. Amazing, intriguing and touching story that at times brought tears to my eyes.
I have not read the print version
Jimmy! He was solid and loyal and the moral compass of the book.
the kitchen/knife scene! Very intriguing and shocking.
Three women bound by intrigue and audacity.
I love everything I have read by Kate Morton. But this might be the best yet. This book was intricately layered and so captivating. I loved the reader, as well and plan to look for other books read by her. Don't miss this one!
