When I read the storyline I thought maybe, maybe it will be interesting, maybe it will be entertaining. In the end it was much more. It asked interesting questions about morality, about responsibility, about love, without presuming to have the answers. I was provoked to consider my own assumptions. And was charmed by the two broken but lovely women at the heart of this story. Also the narrator was perfect and really made it her own. Great performance, bravo!

Terrible narration. The narrator just destroyed this book for me, so woodenly over dramatic on every sentence. I wish I had given up and read a paper copy instead. The story was quite good, gothic as promised. I recommend you buy the book and read it for yourself.

Stole my heart!

A warm wonderful homage to love and family. Joshua Whitehead doesn’t pull any punches. Not surprisingly the narration feels very genuine. Surprised by my sudden tears at the end.
