    Jenna Rosen returns to the place in Alaska where her young son, Bobby, disappeared without a trace two years before. Jenna is determined to lay to rest the aching mystery of his death. But ancient legends may have had a hand in Bobby’s fate, forcing Jenna to sift through her own Native American ancestry to uncover the truth.

    The spiritual world, which the novel revolves around, involves spirits which are 'shape-shifters', which I did not note in other reviews. I found it hard to keep my interest in the novel towards the end, as it shifted more from reality to the super-natural.

    Harry and Madeleine Winslow have been blessed with talent, money, and charm. Harry is a National Book Award-winning author on the cusp of greatness. Madeleine is a woman of sublime beauty and grace whose elemental goodness and serenity belie a privileged upbringing. Bonded by deep devotion, they share a love that is both envied and admired. The Winslows play host to a coterie of close friends and acolytes eager to bask in their golden radiance, whether they are in their bucolic East Hampton cottage, abroad in Rome thanks to Harry's writing grant, or in their comfortable Manhattan brownstone.

    What would have made Indiscretion better?

    More fully developed characters, especially in Claire, would have made the book better.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was excellent with great intonation, appropriate emphasis and pronunciation.


    Any additional comments?

    Was unable to get past "the dinner in Paris" section. The writing, although descriptive, was too obvious, as were the characters. Cannot recommend this book to a friend!

    Berlin in autumn: Christine Starlight lives in an artists' colony with her lover Jude, whose patience and beauty have eased her battle with chronic pain. But Christine begins to be haunted by childhood recollections of a little girl's disappearance and the flapping of a blackbird's wings. Then her world is rocked by the return of a childhood friend... Mayfridh rules over a land where a wolf is the queen's counsellor, fate turns on the fall of an autumn leaf and mortals feel no pain.

    "Fairies and Make-Believe characters"
    Overall

    Did not understand from the Audible summary that this book would involve fairies, and other make-believe characters. I have found the plot very hard to follow as it moves from character to character. I have TRIED to figure this book out, and have stuck with it in excess of 3 listening hours, but am giving up.
