Nancy Harmon fled her California home, the macabre deaths of her two children, and the hideous charges brought against her. She changed her name, dyed her hair, and sought refuge in the serenity of a small New England town.
Now, remarried with two new lovely children, Nancy's life is filled with happiness...until the morning when she looks for her children but all she finds is one tattered red mitten and knows that the nightmare is beginning again.

An enjoyable story that kept me interested in the outcome constantly. It's another hit for MHC. It's difficult to review more details without being a spoiler. Well worth the "read"
Now, the narrator - not so much at all. It was my first listen for this narrator and most likely my last.
I would and have read and listened to other books by Mary Higgins Clark, but I have never listened to one read by Lindsay Crouse before and I will never select another book narrated by her again. I am a Mary Higgins Clark fan, however.
It's not a pleasant topic but most of all, the monotone narration brought nothing of value to the story at all.
Yes, as always, Mary Higgins Clark brings a resolution to the story. There was no way to make this an entirely happy ending, but she ended it justly and as satisfactorily as possible given the subject matter.
I can't recommend this book, but if it were read by another narrator, it might make a difference. The topic is pertinent in today's world, but this rendering did not do it justice.
The overall story... interesting and kept me listening
I can't say without giving away the ending....
No extreme reactions. Just kept my interest all the way through
It was a good read and I'd recommend this book.
