Publisher's Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone comes an incandescent story about the resilience of the human spirit, the triumph of hope, and the meaning of home.

In the rugged Pacific Northwest lies the Olympic National Forest - nearly a million acres of impenetrable darkness and impossible beauty. From deep within this old growth forest, a six-year-old girl appears. Speechless and alone, she offers no clue as to her identity, no hint of her past.

Having retreated to her western Washington hometown after a scandal left her career in ruins, child psychiatrist Dr. Julia Cates is determined to free the extraordinary little girl she calls Alice from a prison of unimaginable fear and isolation. To reach her, Julia must discover the truth about Alice’s past - although doing so requires help from Julia’s estranged sister, a local police officer. The shocking facts of Alice’s life test the limits of Julia’s faith and strength, even as she struggles to make a home for Alice - and for herself.

“One of [Kristin Hannah’s] most compelling and riveting novels.” - Booklist

Horrible narration

I can’t decide if the book was good or not, I hated the narrators voice. So obnoxious. I need to remember to listen to a sample before buying the book.

Terrible narration & slow story. Returned the book

I have read Kristin Hannah‘s books and really enjoyed them. This one, however, has a terrible narrator. She sounds much older than the character is supposed to be and is very boring. The story is also very slow in developing. I read half of the book and could not take any more. Very disappointing.

Slow to Start, Not a Fan of Narrator

Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite artists and I was waiting for this book to be released. I bought it instantly. The I started it, and almost stopped due to the narration of this book. It was such a slow start and I cringed at her voice and take on various characters. If you’re on the fence on listening vs reading, pick up the hard copy! In the end, I liked the story, but it was just thought to get into.

Great start to 2021 Reading List

I've always had an affinity for Kristin Hannah's books - especially the Firefly Lane series - so I had high hopes for this one.

To say I was blown away would be an understatement. I practically devoured the Audiobook in a couple of sittings... making myself carve out time just so I could see what would happen next.

Heart-breaking & Heart-Warming

Life in a small town brings together these amazing characters. All for the benefit of a little girl, lost in darkness for years! They find the lightness of love together!

Narrator

I am such a fan of Kristian Hannah but it was so hard to get through this book because the narration was so off. Voices so wrong for the carectors. Horrible duplication. Totally took away from the story.

Slow moving. Really bad male voice narration

The narration was not good at all for the male voices. One of the characters is supposed to be Mr chiseled jaw, blue eyed, dark messy hair hunk but sounds like a nasal issue, whining voice dork. The story was slow moving throughout and the ending was quick and pretty lame.
