Is there anything you would change about this book?

Not really, except that I couldn't really connect with Daisy as a woman, she seemed too childlike. I'm not sure if that's the book or the voice but there was something missing.

What three words best describe Rosalyn Landor’s performance?

Constant, well prepared, slightly annoying. I hated her American accent, I think it really detracted from the experience, and Lillian sounded like an old woman or a grumpy headmistress at an all boys boarding school. It made it really hard to sympathize with her and her opinions.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I think so. If only to see what they did with it.

Any additional comments?

I really recommend the third in the series, the devil in winter (a devil in winter?), not quite sure what the title was. It was my favorite.
