I'm not a literary person, just someone looking for an interesting book to listen to during the lazy days of summer. I just stumbled upon this by accident, and now have become an instant fan of Kate Morton. The book was everything I was looking for...and more! I have no hesitation in recommending you also pick up this book!
Very rewarding and engaging story, with richly drawn historical depth. Characters have dimension, the storyline is fresh and includes surprise; the phraseology is artistic; the acting skills of the reader bring it brilliantly to life. My first all-around 5-star rating in my year as an Audible listener. Great find.
I really got into reading this book after chapter 25. Before that I felt it was overly descriptive and difficult to stay intrigued. after chapter 25 everything came together and I understood why the author needed to be so descriptive. I started to read the actual book had to switch to the audio version to finish. I loved the performance and the storytelling.
the story was very disjointed and was hard to follow. I was not able to finish listening to the book due to the foul language. Reader beware
Couldn't stop listening. Wonderfully weaves together stories of two young women in wartime London with the efforts of a daughter to understand a violent episode from her childhood.

I love the way the authors gives hints and tidbits but you will be surprised at the twists in this book! I LOVED this book!

I thought a book this long wouldn't keep my attention. Wow was I wrong! I sat in my car freezing to listen to just one more chapter.
This book had me looking for excuses to go in the file room at work so I could listen!! Another reviewer said to be patient in the beginning, and I'm glad I did, because it started off a little slow. Don't get discouraged!! This story is unforgettable! Highly, highly recommended!!
