Struggled a little to get into this, but so glad I persevered as the story draws you in more and more. Touching and involving
This was a story that gripped you from the first chapter. The performance by Juanita Mahon was of such quality that the characters come alive through the speakers.
The author creates such mental pictures through her words that time flies without you being aware of its passing.
I will look for more of her books. Thank you.
I was caught from the first words until the last I lived it and breathed it - if you have ever wanted to completely escape your own and live another - well I just did. Dad I am sorry and I Love You
"Heart rending at times"
At first I found the story to be slow paced, but then I'm used to listening to fast moving thrillers and murder mysteries, so I persevered. It is a well put together story and read with real feeling. I was in tears at some points and confused at others, but the ending was unexpected. I felt the emotions were incredibly believable and you can't help but be pulled into the narrative. Very enjoyable.
"Brought to tears"
Definitely recommend to friends,
Beatrice's conviction that she knows her sister is questioned many times but never completely undermined.
The description of loss and grief is overpowering, It describes bereavement in such eloquent terms that it reduced me to tears.
I loved this book despite the sadder moments, there was no 'happy ending' as there isn't always in real life, no hero rushing in on a white charger but there was a satisfactory conclusion.
"Really glad I read this, end just disappointing"
Excellent book, loved the authors style, have already bought the next book she wrote. The narrator was excellent and it was an interesting look at relationship between two sisters and at the same time a thriller with a different twist. Only thing for me was the end was disappointing and left me kinda sat in the car, just saying... Okay! However despite this still worth a read and a very healthy 4 stars! X
"Not what I was expecting"
A bit far fetched story and I got quite bored with the way the character built
The ending was a bit daft
A bit boring
Not listen to any other books by this author
struggles initially with narrator, but, given time became accustomed to her. really liked how the story unfolds and the little twists toward the end. kept wanting to hear more, but ran out of time on dog walks! Fab diversion from wind and rain, though!!
This book really surprised me. I couldn't stop listening to it and openly cried during my commute at some parts. Great book.
I struggled with this book. it was awful in every possible way. I gave up listening half way through. terrible story, depressing. did not care to torture myself by finishing it.
