As a brand-new blood slave, Annika must survive her dangerous new circumstances - or face death from the wolves prowling the Vale's enchanted walls.

In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor in rural Oxfordshire. Their plan: to spend a secluded summer month in a haze of inspiration and creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one woman has been shot dead while another has disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and Edward Radcliffe’s life is in ruins. Over 150 years later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London, uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated items.

I like Kate Morton's books very much. This was a good story. But the way the author tells it is extremely confusing. Could have been such an amazing story, she totally missed the mark. too much jumping back and forth. The end had no closure. I still had unanswered questions.

This book was on my wish list for quit some time. I only started it because I couldn't decide on anything else. It had twist and turns until the last last chapter. And I didnt guess the correct ending. It was a great story. Mystery to keep your undivided attention. Love between parents and children. Love between man and woman. Mostly, the love sisters have for each other. Sisters through thick and thin!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

In the vein of Wicked, The Woodcutter, and Boy, Snow, Bird, a luminous re-imagining of a classic tale, told from the perspective of Agnes, Cinderella’s "evil" stepmother. We all know the story of Cinderella. Or do we? As rumors about the cruel upbringing of beautiful newlywed Princess Cinderella roil the kingdom, her stepmother, Agnes, who knows all too well about hardship, privately records the true story...

As much as I hate say this Bible was terrible, it was. As I like the narration. There is no way to tell where in the Bible you are. It downloads as multiple files. But you just have to start opening them and listening to find where you are. You cannot look up a chapter or a verse. If you want to listen from beginning to end, its great.

What made the experience of listening to Wicked Lovely the most enjoyable?

The characters were easy to understand where their loyalty is.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wicked Lovely?

The culmination of feelings from the characters at the end.

How could the performance have been better?

Narration was poor. The main character was a quiet strong individual. But her "voice" made her sound like a waife. I small wisp of a girl.

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

No
