Kate Morton did a wonderful job of taking The reader from current day back to 1941. Characters were well-developed the story was interesting in a way that only Kate seems to know how to do. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that likes historical novels.I have read everything Kate Morton is written notes on audible and can't recommend her books enough. Caroline Lee doesn't amazing job of narrating many voices with the distinct British accent for each so you're never confused with who is speaking
Love, Love, Loved it! Great transition of 1920's to 1940 war time in London and current time 2011. Kate Morton can grab you on the 1st page and take you on a journey that has you on the edge of your seat unraveling all those family secrets. Great Read!
Once was enough.
The character development, relationships, and the mystery.
Actually, it did make me cry!
A wonderful listening experience with superb narration. This one will stay with me.
It jumps around various stories that do not blend together and even after half of the book I still could not follow the story line so I gave up.
Too many disjointed story sections.
Never heard of this writer or the book. Just got it because I was looking for a cheap book and it was on sale. It was the BEST book I have ever read! AMAZING! It keep you guessing and ypu think you know what will happen and you will probably be wrong:) So good!!
It started a little slowly but I think that it was important for the development of the characters. Good story about second chances and a glimpse into how circumstances can shape our decisions.
The narrator's subtle performance enhances this riveting story.
If you enjoy war time tales and mysteries that keep you guessing, you can't miss.
The writing is smooth, although the frequent shifts between decades and characters keep the reader engaged.
I am not compelled to rave about this book to anyone; it's a good story, but not a great one. The story, I feel, is much longer than it needed to be. There were other reviewers that mentioned that there was a lot of "smoking" in the book. Well, they were right! But the story line seemed to glorify smoking, which is what bothered me. It was just not necessary or pleasant to have it in the story so much. The narrator has a very pleasing voice.
No I would not. It's not the kind of story that is a "stand out".
I can't think of a favorite scene.
