When I started listening to this audiobook I was surprised that the author was reading it - it soon became clear that no self respecting actor would touch it. This book is drab, tedious and badly written. From the overly detailed descriptions of the clothes worn by it's two dimensional heroine to the tired old Irish Catholic theme and the shallow psycho babble - it's dull dull dull. The pseudo intellectualism of the protagonists is laughable and the whole scenario reads more like an exercise in wishful fantasising than a serious attempt to tackle difficult though overused material. The sugary and unskilled voice of the author narrating her poorly constructed sentences make this an infuriating and unpleasant listen. If you are looking for good literature -don't waste your money.

A gripping story I found it a sensitive and moving, tense but also uplifting.

I have not been able to put it down..
A beautiful story written by a very gifted writer.
Esme Waters facinates me.. Her story facinates me.
and IMO Mary Stanley reads the book well..
I usually do not like it when an author reads a book.. Ms Stanley has changed my opinion..
Five starts for me!
Painfully amateurish in both the writing and the reading. With unbelievable paper doll characters in stereotypic settings that can barely stand up.
