Publisher's Summary

Sometimes fairy tales do come true…
As a single mother of two, Faye O'Neill has no time for fairy tales. She's not even certain she believes in luck. Practical, smart, and desperate to escape a shadowy past, Faye takes a job at a top advertising firm in London where she hopes she and her children can find a fresh start. When she finds the beautiful two-story flat for rent in a stately old Victorian complete with a neglected but tumbling English garden, she can scarcely believe her good fortune. But it isn't long before Faye realizes not everything in the old home may be as peaceful as it seems.
A strange light begins to appear in her children's rooms at night, and then there's the reclusive elderly tenant, Crazy Wendy, her landlady warned her to steer clear of, the woman who spends her evenings spying on Faye's children from her garret-room window. The woman who believes she is Peter Pan's Wendy. To make matters worse, Faye, who has sworn off men, discovers her downstairs neighbor Jack is a disturbingly handsome professor with a talent for charming women and children alike. Before she knows it, Faye has embarked upon a whole new adventure into a world where anything might be possible, where broken hearts can be healed by a kiss, and where Neverland may not be a place of fables but a forgotten land one can still find if they are only brave enough to follow the second star to the right.

I loved the story, very easy to follow.
The narrator made me laugh with her really bad posh English accents.

Lovely story but!

Would you try another book written by Mary Alice Monroe or narrated by Mary Alice Monroe?

I would listen to a Mary Alice Monroe book provided that it was narrated by someone else.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them.

How could the performance have been better?

The narration would have been far better had a professional voice actor been used. I can understand the author wanting to read the story herself but much more research should have been done into the British accent!
I am british and it drove me mad to hear the mangled dialect and what was supposed to be an upper crust british accent.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the book despite the negative on the narration.
