Excellent reading. The different character readings makes it so much easier to follow and the story line was typical Jane Austin. Very good and enjoyable.

Ever since her husband’s death collided with the birth of her daughter, postpartum depression has taken hold of Veronica Shelton. She can’t sleep, can’t work, and can’t bear to touch her beautiful baby girl. Her emotional state is whispering lies in Veronica’s ear: You’re a bad mother. But not everything can be reasoned away by Veronica’s despair. Can it? After all, the break-in at her house happened. The disturbing sketches she found in her studio are real. So is the fear for her daughter’s safety — especially when Veronica comes home to a silent nursery and a missing baby.

Listen to this book in one day. Story, characters, narrative, and ending were all excellent. Put off other things just to sit and listen to the story and finish in one day. Excellent job.

Ending was a let down. Part 2 i don’t know about? No climax, title makes it seem like there’s far more to it, and parts are left unexplained. More questions than answers. Story about his life good, just no real antagonist or hero, just a story of growing up.
