Publisher's Summary

The Snow Rose is the gripping story of a woman on the run from her past by Lulu Taylor, author of The Winter Folly.
I know they think I shouldn't keep her.... That's why I've escaped them while I can, while I still have the opportunity....
Kate is on the run with her daughter, Heather, her identity hidden and their destination unknown to the family they've left behind. She's found a place where they can live in solitude, a grand old house full of empty rooms and dark secrets. But they're not alone, for there are the strange old ladies in the cottage next door: Matty and her sister, Sissy. They know what happened here long ago and are curious about Kate. How long can she hide Heather's presence from them?
When an eccentric band of newcomers arrive, led by the charismatic Archer, Kate realizes that the past she's so desperate to escape is about to catch up with her. And inside the house, history is beginning to repeat itself....

A bit dull

This is my second Lulu Taylor book having previously read 'The Winter Folly' which I really enjoyed. I thought this was an ok read but nothing near the previous one I read. The beginning was ok with Kate running away from her husband and taking on the house. Odd how she treated her daughter Heather but that will be revealed later.
The 'cult' side of the story was quite 'same old same old' of what cults are meant to be. Safe to say that if you are a mastermind at lying and a sex maniac then you will fit right in!
Kate's overall story was ok and the narrative was good. However it could have been told in half the time without the cult part which really added nothing to the tale. It is ok as an easy read Maybe pick it up from the charity shop or somewhere really cheap Certainly (in my opinion) not atall worth wasting your audible credit on. I will be returning it.

Dull and Predictable

Possibly the most boring book I've ever had the misery of listening to. Hardly anything happens and everything that does happen can be predicted within the first few chapters. The entire book is full of long drawn out passages of 'woe is me' from the main character and every other character is lacking life too, each one pandering to the unrealistic tedious tones of a depressed woman. The only redeemable feature was how well it was read aloud.
