From Sunday Times best-selling author Santa Montefiore comes a novel about losing yourself, but finding your future.…
Ellen Trawton is running away from it all - literally. She’s getting married to a man she doesn't love, her job is depressing, and her mother is getting on her nerves. So she escapes to the one place she knows her mother won't follow her - her aunt's house in rural Ireland. Once there, she uncovers a dark family secret - and a future she never knew she might have.

The most disappointing Audible experience!

What would have made Secrets of the Lighthouse better?

Selecting narrators that could speak at the same speed as each other and could narrate in good Irish accents. the characters slow speech made it sound as if they were speaking to children.

What could Santa Montefiore have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not sure that the author could have done anything about the narrators.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Maggie Mash and Gerri Halligan ?

The main narrator in the book has a very good speaking voice, however the character voices were slow, and a very poor reflection of the Irish accent. Ellen's voice sounded as if she was straight out of a Walt Disney children's film.

Any additional comments?

I have read and listened to many Santa Montefiorie books, but I for me, this is the weakest, and the audible experience was so poor, I had to buy the book in order to finish the story.

a superb read

Would you listen to Secrets of the Lighthouse again? Why?

Yes. The narrators were good to listen to and the story was really good, kept me enthralled. Best of all the description of the scenery was so good I could really imagine myself there.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ellie because it was so easy to empathise with her because of the way the story was written.

What about Maggie Mash and Gerri Halligan ’s performance did you like?

Superb, you always knew which character was speaking.
