I enjoyed the story and he writing, but this was the wrong narrator for it. So, I would recommend the book but not he audio.
Fascinating characters and a very well-defined sense of place.
I felt the book needed a different voice, perhaps a female narrator, to bring the characters to life.
Elizabeth McGovern did a beautiful reading, adding passion and character to the story. But the story itself was too drawn-out. I felt the entire "part 3" could have been effectively summarized in an epilogue. It lessened the emotional impact of the first half of the book.
Compelling and well written.
The father of the teenage suspect. He was a man of strength and integrity,and loved his family even when faced the the censure of his community.
Aunt Julia, quite a character !
Absolutely ! I was completely involved in the story and the mystery.
I read a negative review and wonder if I listened to the same book ! I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys character driven drama.
