    Story
    "Empathic Ghost History"

    Kate Mosse is gifted in weaving ancient religious history with the present through an empathic character's receptivity. I had thoroughly enjoyed reading Labyrinth several years ago, and I knew that she was playing with spirits, again. I liked being read to this time in the audible version. Winter Ghosts is about releasing the past in order to live fully in the present, and it is not a frightening ghost story even as it contains the horror of war. I wanted perhaps one more surprise or twist to counteract the knowledge I had ahead of the narrator, Freddie Watson, but for the most part, the novel delivers.

    Story
    "Delightful Listen"

    A quiet ghost/love story elegantly told by a man stepping out of the shadow of sorrow into the sunshine of hope. It has been beautifully written by Kate Mosse and perfectly narrated by Julian Rhind-Tutt, whose sensitive performance allows listeners to thoroughly enjoy the sweet sadness of the tale. The story is about grief and loss, but it is no way gloomy. On the contrary, listening to it is an experience akin to viewing a beautiful winter scene through the window of a cozy, warm room. Sheer pleasure.
