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!
This story engrossed and delighted me more than any in a long while. I didn't want to stop listening as I wanted to hear what unfolded next! I guessed one part of the mystery about 3 hours from the end, but was totally surprised by another revelation - I didn't see it coming. Definitely engages the emotions as it illustrates how small personal choices can have huge impacts on others' lives. Very satisfactory.
I did enjoy the book, but having heard several other selections by this author I predicted certain elements of the story and it became boring.
