I really enjoyed this book, even thought it jumped between narrators and time periods. It was a little hard to keep track of at first, but Kate Morton does an excellent job of weaving the story together from the various points of view. I'm sure there were details I missed the first time.
That would be giving away too much!
I loved listening to Caroline Lee. I enjoyed her accent.
Nonfiction writer by day, fiction lover by night.
This was a good plot but the telling itself is in serious need of an editor. The story dragged on and on. Even more annoying: it kept repeating information we already found out in earlier chapters. Maybe this annoyed me more than most because I'm an editor by trade, but it drove me nuts.
Love to exercise while listening
Good, Bad, Ugly
I love books that aren't distracting. Also, if I wasn't listening, I was thinking about the characters.
Wow! What an enjoyable listen. I love the combination of this author and narrator. I've listened to Secret keepers and that was similar. Different women in different parts of history.
I think of this story many months after listening to it. Mostly the happy parts, as there was so much sadness to this book as well. In fact I didn't even finish 2 chapters as she described a couple tragedies. I was driving and couldn't see through my tears! However the happy ending made it all worth it.
I really liked this one! The narrator was great. The story was engrossing and kept me interested. I did figure it out early on but couldn't be sure until the end. I love a book that can make me feel something about the characters. I found myself disliking Dolly and actually saying out loud to Jimmy that he was too good for her.
It is narrated so well. Caroline Lee is GREAT!!!
The end of the book. There is an amazing twist
Narrator was awesome
When it is reveled that the real dolly died.
I love to listen to audio books
I like the style of Kate Morton, where you get the prospective of the story through many characters points of views, experiences. I enjoy time traveling back to the past and how it is unfolding in a mystery of the present. Then at the very end, it all comes together.
This is very similar to the Secrete Garden, also by the same author.
Yes, I find her very easy to listen to and understand.
A Secret Among Us
Finally!! I am an avid audible listener but I rarely write a review. Not this time! I have to say that this book took me by surprise. Very well written, beautifully narrated, AND a great story! I didn't want it to end but I couldn't wait to find out how it did!!
I don't want to spoil one minute of this story for anyone so please find out for yourself!
Hate to read but have enjoyed listening to books.
this story keeps you engaged and interested wanting more.
Just when you think you have it figured out there comes a twist which take the story a different direction.
I love the twists in her stories. While they may not be super deep, it's just plain entertaining. I always like her books.
I normally don't like abridged audio books because I don't want to miss anything, but this one could stand to be abridged. I actually started listening to it when it first came out and I happily snapped it up. What a disappointment. I was a good half way into the story, but so bored that I finally gave up and started something else. I finally went back to it several months (and books) later simply because I wanted my money's worth. It never really picked up until the end. The ending was fantastic and I want to say worth the wait, but having to muddle through all sorts of pointless details and peripheral stories, which could have easily been left out and not effected the main story, really made it hard to get to the end. The ending was the only redeeming quality, although I appreciate that Ms. Morton can write a book and tell a story without detailed sex scenes and offensive curse words.
