    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    What did you love best about The Witness?

    The characters and story haunted me so I couldn't put this down. This is not just a romance, but Nora Roberts builds a great story, develops believable characters, and you have to know what is going to happen next. The reader was outstanding. It was unbelievable to me how well she could carry both male and female parts, and switch from one character's accent to another. She could read as a patient southern male, a proper and cautious young woman, as well as both young and old Russian men with consistency and accuracy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    Overall

    The story was interesting, but listening to so many voices read by one narrator grew confusing and a bit tiring. The reader seemed to overly dramatize some of the characters (the mother, esp.). Didn't hold my attention.

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    Overall

    Charming story told from the perspective of a very human, old-fashioned English gentleman who is adapting to modern society. Excellent reader. Easy to listen to and hard to ignore as you get involved in these characters.
