Publisher's Summary

With nowhere to go, no one to help her, Leigh fled into the arms of Luke Casteel! Leigh Van Voreen had to escape from Boston's Farthinggale Manor. The foul secret she harbored within her seemed to darken her life forever. Jillian, her mother, would not believe her...and Tony Tatterton, her stepfather, had betrayed her most cruelly.

But the pure devotion of Luke Casteel promised her hope and respect. Only Luke knew her deepest of secrets...only Luke would love and protect her. Bravely, she bore the suspicions of the Willies' hillfolk as she tried to grasp the happiness that had so long eluded her. Leigh prayed with all her heart that her bright, shining dreams would save her from tragedy at last....

Good book, horrible Narrator!!

Love the book. It was the narrator that made this extremely hard to get through! What's with the whispering??? So annoying!! I'm glad I've read the book before.

Annoying Narration on a Good Book

The last book in the series is the Prequel and gives the reader the back story of Heaven’s Mother Leigh VanVoreen. Probably my favorite series by VC Andrews.
But it was ruined for me by the terrible narration by Robin Eller. Too breathy & whispery, sounding like a Child. I found her voice nauseatingly annoying and could not even finish Chapter One.
Candace Thaxton and Andi Arndt gave much better performances in their narrations.

DROVE ME CRAZY!

I said several times while listening to this book, "I HATE this book!" what I hated the most was the narration. She WHISPERED the entire time, making it hard to hear, even with my volume all the way up and earphones! I barely made it thru the damn book. I will NOT be listening to it again!

Like listening to bad ASMR

I want to finish the Heaven series and have never read this book. I don’t know if I can get through this one with the weird whispering of the narrator!!! WHY DOES SHE SOUND LIKE ASMR!!! Terrible!!

Stop whispering!

I’ll never listen to a book with this narrator again. This is agonizing.

To be fair, her non-protagonist voices are fine. Maybe because Leigh is a child? Bizarre whispering, too dramatic, and betrays a frustrating lack of familiarity with the text.

Edit: I really hope Audible pays attention to these reviews. Listeners are owed something back for consensus on this godawful reading.

Great story, Horrible narration

The whispering is too much. Good thing I have read this story before on my own. No way can I get through this narration.

wish I had read it myself

I have just recently started listening to books, I love to read but, finding the time is hard so listening to them being read is great! It would be nice to have the same person reading an entire series but still not bad...except...this narrator. The minute she started reading I was annoyed. She is way to breathy almost like she's whispering. Each sentence she reads reminds me of a rollercoaster, I barely made it through the prologue. I hoped it would get better in the first chapter but I'm only what seems a paragraph in and I had to stop. Super disappointed

Story is Great - If you can listen

Love the story - very hard to get past the narrator. If you liked the first 4 books in the series you will also like this, I have to listen to the entire series or it drives me mad. However it is really hard to put up with the whisper weird voice.
