Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Rumour by Lesley Kara. A casual comment. There's a killer among us. That's all it takes. She stabbed little Robbie Harris. To change a life - She's living under a new name. For ever. She's reformed. So they say... Joanna is going to regret the day she ever said a word.

Way better than “ Girl on the Train “ , this book is excellent from beginning to end, the story is brilliant and the narration equally as good, I wish Lesley Kara had more books available for me to listen to, I am surethis will be made into a film , so read/ listen to the the book first as the book is always better than the film..

She’ll never forget...I’ll never forgive. People always notice my daughter, Isobel. How could they not? Incredibly beautiful...until she speaks. An unsettling little-girl voice, exactly like a child’s, but from the mouth of a full-grown woman. Izzie might look grown up, but inside she’s trapped. Caught in the day it happened...the day that broke her from within. Our family fell apart that day, and we never could pick up the pieces....

Pirriwee Public is a beautiful little beachside primary school where children are taught that ‘sharing is caring.’ So how has the annual School Trivia Night ended in full-blown riot? Sirens are wailing. People are screaming. The principal is mortified. And one parent is dead. Was it a murder, a tragic accident or just good parents gone bad? As the parents at Pirriwee Public are about to discover, sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal.

Since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Dr. Bruce Lipton has received widespread acclaim as one of the most accessible and knowledgeable voices of "new biology". The science is called epigenetics – a revolutionary field that shows us how the energy of consciousness is as important in shaping life on earth as DNA and chemistry.

Such a long, , unbelievable story.
The little girls character is not at all believable as one that would allow two grown woman to fall for her supppsed charms- it is a silly book that I reluctantly read till the end hoping for an exciting twist which never came.
