Excellent character development

Enjoyed this book because of the excellent character development. Don’t know if the narrator,Rachel Atkins made the characters come alive or the author, Kathryn Hughes wrote a novel with many twists and turns.

Very well written book.

This is the 4th book I have read by this author. Each one has been very entertaining. I love her style of intrigue. She lets you keep guessing how the twist and turns occur. Makes you love her characters. Still have to think about ending of epilogue.

Enjoyable, Different

A wonderful story. wonderfully read. There were so many different voices, inflections, and accents. You would have thought more than one person was reading because they were so well done. The performance was truly excellent!!! I really enjoyed listening.

Not Kathryn Hughes' best story.

I've read all of her books and loved them all. As this one started out very slow and was awfully boring. Any other book and I would have quit listening, but this was Kathryn Hughes! I was a fan and this book had to get better!!!! It did get better, but only the last half. The narrator was great.

I loved it

Kathryn Hughes is one of my favorite writers and I think this was her best but I say that every time! Tara is 15 when her mother goes off on holiday to Italy with her boyfriend. Tara thought she was going too but the boyfriend made sure she didn't. Tara's mother never came home and she never found out what happened to her. I like the way Ms. Hughes tells a story and the way you never know what is going to happen until the last chapter. And when it is explained it all seems so simple. I think I have read everything she has written and I can't wait for the next mystery.

Was different

I was confused at time as it felt like I was hearing 3 totally unrelated stories that made not one wit of sense. Several times I stopped to re read the books description. But in the end they all come together and you “get” it. No spoilers. Narration fantastic. Unbelievably well done.
