    Brooke was drawn to the soulful, enigmatic Julian Alter the very first time she heard him perform “Hallelujah” at a dark East Village dive bar. Now five years married, Brooke balances two jobs—as a nutritionist at NYU Hospital and as a consultant to an Upper East Side girls’ school, where privilege gone wrong and disordered eating run rampant—in order to help support her husband’s dream of making it in the music world.

    I'm really enjoying this story and love the characters, Brooke and Nola. This is right up there with her other novels. I love the humor and the serious lines as well. The only thing I can't enjoy is this reader - it's 'ok' but she really doesn't enunciate some words and it sounds rather unprofessional for a book reader. Example: "impordent" instead of pronouncing "important". Other than that, it's a fun book.

    Wow - this was a book I downloaded because it was on sale thinking it would be okay. I was so astonished!! I felt like I knew and understood each and every character and did not predict any of the many, many twists and turns this novel took. I was hooked and carried my iPod with me for any moment to listen. I will find more of Kate Morton's books as soon as possible! Oh, and the narrater was perfect too.

    In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery - a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog.

    Overall

    I have read Kathy Reich's previous books and loved them, not this one. If you like being read the encyclopedia, you might enjoy this. The narrators voice has little inflection between characters and very monotone. She sounds just like she was reading from the book. The book itself goes off into extreme unnecessary detail. I had to fastforward just to get past it so many parts hoping to find the actually story again. I had to quit listening.
