Publisher's Summary

Family ties so strong you can’t escape…

Mary Olivia Pentecost, known as Mop, was born into one of the wealthiest families in the country - and one of the most guarded. Now, two years after her mother’s mysterious death, Mop is seeking closure on the disquieting tragedy by returning to the New England seaside estate of her cloistered Aunty Liv - once her closest relative and confidante.

But behind the walls of the isolated estate, the shadows of the past are darker than Mop imagined. The puzzles of the family history are not to be shared, but unearthed. With each revelation comes a new, foreboding threat - and for Mop, the grave suspicion that to discover Aunty Liv’s secrets is to become a prisoner of them.

How well do we know the people we love? How well do we want to know them? The answers are as twisted as a tangle of vines in this throat-clutching novel of psychological suspense.

Delusional, rediculous at times but ended ok

I had a hard time with the repetition of thoughts and just wished it would go somewhere...too much drama, too much listening to deranged thoughts. It could have been condensed and still told a story without all of the babbling

Highly disappointed

I basically had to force myself to listen. Poor story. Just a stupid storyline with poor characters.

Too much swearing

I did not even get through the first chapter before I decided to stop listening to the almost constant swearing. While I prefer books with out any swearing at all. One occasionally can be tolerated, but I do not like the amount of swearing in this book. I would give this book no stars if it let me.

worth the time

This story is quite enjoyable. it is told along the broken tine line idea of writing. getting the whole tale but in disjointed snippets. the most enjoyable part of this work is the narrator. she does an amazing job!

Tough start but strong finish

I had a lot of trouble sticking with this book but am so glad I did. I usually don't like back in forth with time but it worked for this story.. Would recommend sticking with it if you start.

A bit tough to get through

Listening to this book stressed me out. The narration was good, but the stream of thought (from the writing) was tough to listen too. If I was reading the book, I would have been able to skip the repetitiveness. I listened through to the end though to find out what happens.

Great Audible

I really enjoyed listening to this. I like when Audible books have more than 1 person narrating. The story was good and kept me wanting more. The narration was the best I've heard, these women really did a great job acting this out. Thank you!
