Publisher's Summary

Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for 62 years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, 16-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose -  hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire - is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes - or be left without any future at all.

    Story
    "Entertaining"
    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    Apart from the main character, Rose, I really enjoyed Bren.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I chuckled a few times. I found myself putting my hand over my mouth too.


    Any additional comments?

    I will definitely be looking for this author and/or narrator in future purchases; great story, excellent performance by Angela Dawe.

    "This book broke my heart over and over!"
    Would you listen to A Long, Long Sleep again? Why?

    It would have to be a long time from now. My emotional response to this book is still too raw.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The opportunity to make amends, say goodbye, come to terms with truth. I also appreciated the flashback scenes.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but I thought she did great!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Did I want to? No, it was making me so sad! Could I turn it off? No, and I tried! I listened to this book in almost one sitting. And cried A LOT.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't rate the story 5 stars because I found myself irritated with how little self worth Rose had. One can only hear so much self loathing. However, as the story progresses, you understand why. The villians. It was their fault and they should have been punished. I won't go into details, but I do highly recommend this book. It's a lovely, haunting, and heartbreaking story with hope at the end, and that makes all the difference.

    This is a teen book with an entertaining premise that is interesting enough for adults to enjoy.

    "A new twist on sleeping beauty"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The idea of time travel sets the scene for this story about a girl who awakens from stasis only to find that the life she knew is more than 60 years in the past. If we could
