Atmospheric with characters I would like to meet. Sad when this marvellous story ended.

I have been a huge Belinda fan ever since I discovered them in 2010. Authors Kate Morton and Belinda Alexandra are two of my all-time faves. I didn't even realize this had come out, so when I saw it in the new releases, I was thrilled. I devoured it all in almost one entire listen. It did not disappoint! Right away the story grabs you and sucks you in. I love, love, love, dramatic fiction stories about genealogy, family secrets and historical places. This novel about an Australian woman uncovering her roots in New Orleans was gorgeous both in writing and setting. And as usual, Caroline Lee was perfect. I've said it before... she is my all-time favorite narrator, and I am a devoted fan. She brings you into the story so well that at times one forgets it's even a book - it feels so realistic. I adored it, and my only complain was that it had to end. Highly recommend!!

Good story. I like Caroline Lee, but her Southern/NOLA accent and pronunciation of local places...in a word- TERRIBLE, just terrible. It made the story difficult to listen to at first. Once I got involved I overlooked the accent. It probably won't bother someone who is not from the South or from USA for that matter, but to a local it was awful.
