Publisher's Summary

Four members of the Coverdale family - George, Jacqueline, Melinda and Giles - died in the space of fifteen minutes on the 14th February, St Valentine's Day.

A Judgement In Stone

I have read this in paperback years ago and enjoyed it. The story of the doomed Coverdale family and their strange housekeeper, Eunice Parchment.

Although the narrator, Carole Hayman made a good fist of the various characters, her portrayal of shrewish gossip Joan Smith was a high pitched aural assault. Also, the performance of some of the 'country/Suffolk folk' was bizarre.

superb story

Would you consider the audio edition of A Judgement in Stone to be better than the print version?

I prefer the audio version as with Carole Boyd giving such a wonderful voices reading it just brings the story alive.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Judgement in Stone?

When Eunice lifted Norman against the wall for hitting his wife.<br/>

Have you listened to any of Carole Hayman’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I think this one of the best readings by Carole Hayman I can listen to this again and again and again.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
