When 29-year-old Cynthia Galbraith struggles to come to terms with her traumatic past and the realities of prison life, a prison counsellor persuades her to write a personal journal exploring the events that led to a life sentence for murder.
Although unconvinced at first, Cynthia finally decides she has all the time in the world and very little, if anything, to lose. She begins writing and holds back nothing: sharing the thoughts she hadn't dared vocalize, the things that keep her awake at night and haunt her waking hours.

John Nicholl cannot write a story, he writes masterpieces. This memoir of Cynthia Galbraith, self-penned while she's incarcerated is incredibly moving and poignant. It's a record of a bright, clever and lovely young girl became a downtrodden, terrified, non person. Justifying the way her life was decimated by her husband and everything else that entailed. My heart ached for Cynthia as her backbone crumbled under the pressure of the constant dark, evil that was her husband. I pray for her resurrection and hope that she has something of a phoenix hidden within her. John Nicholl as his eloquent and articulate best.

Intriguing, Grippng & Dark - Great Read!
What was one of the most memorable moments of When Evil Calls Your Name?
It is truly hard to pick one memorable moment as the complete story had me on an emotional roller coaster. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
Have you listened to any of Emily Wilden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have never listened to Emily Wilden before this performance but I most definitely will be watching for more of her work. She portrayed this story as I feel it should have been. She brings Cynthia, as well as the whole story, to life.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I experienced many emotional reactions to this book but what stands out most is anger and sadness.I had anger towards the Dr. and his treatment of Cynthia. His actions were deplorable and reprehensible.I had sadness for Cynthia because of how she was treated and all she had gone through. John Nicholls' experience as a law enforcement officer and child protection officer shine through in this story. Kudos to Mr. Nicholl's for an amazing story. Anxiously awaiting book 3.

Hit or miss. It was a hit for me.
I can see now why the reviews were so mixed after listening to this book. I cannot compare it to the first book since I've not listened to it so I didn't have that dilemma. It does move slowly but in my opinion it must move that pace since that is the pace of a prisoner writing a journal. I really enjoyed the manner of this writing - it really was like listening to someone's journal. It goes off on tangents which I also enjoyed. Not for the action/thriller reader.
The narration was excellent! It kept me in the story and followed the diversions aptly. That didn't really make a lot of sense but I feel the need to say why the narration was pleasing to me.The tone and accent and pitch were spot on.
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
