I remember reading and enjoying this book some time ago but couldn't remember the details, so when I saw the audio I thought, why not.
It took me sometime to get started on it, about five attempts I think, but I just wasn't in the right frame of mind. Then I started it this morning and haven't switched the player off since. Once I got into the story I thoroughly enjoyed the slalom route it took through - I don't like the phrase plot-twists in this instance, it just doesn't seem right.
The two sisters were adorable and very well played. I always knew which character was speaking and I couldn't help it, I really disliked the nasty governess, just as I think I was meant to.
I've dropped a couple of stars because it took me a while to get started, but as I say, I don't think that was really the book's fault.
This was beautifully narrated and a really good example of the genre. Singleton shows a strong respect for what is appropriare for young readers and still creates a chilling gothic mystery.
