Publisher's Summary

Nancy Harmon fled her California home, the macabre deaths of her two children, and the hideous charges brought against her. She changed her name, dyed her hair, and sought refuge in the serenity of a small New England town.

Now, remarried with two new lovely children, Nancy's life is filled with happiness...until the morning when she looks for her children but all she finds is one tattered red mitten and knows that the nightmare is beginning again.

©1992 Mary Higgins Clark (P)1992 Simon & Schuster

KEPT ME WONDERING HOW IT WOULD ALL TURN OUT...

An enjoyable story that kept me interested in the outcome constantly. It's another hit for MHC. It's difficult to review more details without being a spoiler. Well worth the "read"

Now, the narrator - not so much at all. It was my first listen for this narrator and most likely my last.

Not for me

Would you try another book from Mary Higgins Clark and/or Lindsay Crouse?

I would and have read and listened to other books by Mary Higgins Clark, but I have never listened to one read by Lindsay Crouse before and I will never select another book narrated by her again. I am a Mary Higgins Clark fan, however.

What was most disappointing about Mary Higgins Clark’s story?

It's not a pleasant topic but most of all, the monotone narration brought nothing of value to the story at all.

Would you be willing to try another one of Lindsay Crouse’s performances?

No.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, as always, Mary Higgins Clark brings a resolution to the story. There was no way to make this an entirely happy ending, but she ended it justly and as satisfactorily as possible given the subject matter.

Any additional comments?

I can't recommend this book, but if it were read by another narrator, it might make a difference. The topic is pertinent in today's world, but this rendering did not do it justice.
