Yes, this is on my favorites list.
I never suspected the ending. I love surprises! Great book.
Her voice changes with the emotions of characters and events, where some narrators can be distracting, Caroline Lee just brings you right into the story and you won't want to turn her off.
I felt that this book dragged on too much. I like Kate Morton but she could tell her story in fewer words and it would still be suspenseful and captivating. I like her stories but felt that it took too long for the plot to work itself out. I would have stopped listening if it weren't such a suspenseful plot.
I could see it being made into a movie.
Caroline Lee's voice sounded too Australian to me and when she tried to switch characters, she lost the British accent a lot.
I didn't not read the print version. But the audio edition was outstanding.
The character development was so memorable. I was able to truly understand each character's motivations, passions, dreams. The ending was a complete surprise. Well done.
Caroline Lee was outstanding. She has the most wonderful voice and gave each character a personality. I could almost picture each one.
Love listening to the british accent of the narrater. Made listening to 30 hours of narration much more enjoyable.
The accent and how she did a great job when changing characters.
Enjoyable read. Surprising ending.
I have already recommended this book. I can't wait to discover their stories.
Great transition between past and present.
The history line of the 1940's during the war.
The depth of the story and all the dimension it had.
Finding out about the abuse suffered by Vivian at the hand of her husband.
I truly enjoyed the whole book. It was great entertainment.
This by far is probably the first on my list. I stayed engrossed in it from the beginning to end. Excellent read.
Laurel's tenacity and thougts brought you back to the now and made me feel like I was her and had my same thoughts. Great character.
When Laurel went back to London and saw the picture of her mother which was actually Vivian. The light bulb went on in my head I had to think back about the entire book, it totally caught me by surprise.
Laurel and Jerry.
I would recommend this book to all my friends. It truly is a good read, keeps you interested thoughout the entire book.
Was a great story I really enjoyed it! Kate Morton's best in my opinion and the narrator was great.
Absolutely! I loved the British accent which added a dimension of realness to the entire work.
The way the author switched back and forth easily from the present to the past.
Jimmy, who was so good,
I've never reviewed a book before and I've listened to hundreds. I'm compelled after this listen because I was totally absorbed in the "mystery" of Dorothy Smithim's live. I never expected the ending and loved it. I absolutely would recommend this book.
Kate Morton is amazing. What a talent she has to be able to create these intricate and captivating stories. This is the fourth of her books I have listened to and I marvel at her talent. I hate it when her stories end, even though they are long by normal standards. All her stories are family oriented with a mysterious and devastating secret - often murder - that is resolved at the end. The narrator, Caroline Lee, has a musical voice that works in different tones and accents for different characters. She is a pleasure to listen to.
I will look forward to every one of Kate Morton's books in the future.
