Summary

March 1928. The Great War has been over for 10 years, but Freddie still hasn't recovered from the loss of his brother. Even now, on holiday in south-west France, he cannot escape his grief. When his car crashes, Freddie stumbles down from the hills to a village nearby. There he meets Marie, a beautiful young woman who is also mourning a lost generation.
Her story of the fate of her family moves him deeply. But it will also lead Freddie to the caves above the village - and to the heart of a shocking secret. By turns thrilling, poignant and haunting, this is a story of two lives touched by war and transformed by courage.

excellent reader

I gave this review 3 out of 5 stars only because if you've read Kate Mosse's Sepulchre and Labyrinth, you know the formula for this book. If you're a fan--it's worth the read. I was disappointed that the book was so short--pretty much a glorified short story. The reader, however, does an INCREDIBLE job and really brings the story to life. Definitely worth an Audible credit, I just wish the book was longer.

Good reader shame about the book

I am always reluctant to leave a negative review for anything; after all people have worked hard to produce something which I myself could not do, why then cast aspersions? I do so on this occasion principally because I wish to save any other trusting soul from wasting a good credit and 5 hours of their life on this wearisome tosh.

Marketed as ghost story it is less frightening or shocking than just plain dull; the characters are never more than two dimensional and the sentiments expressed never less than trite. This is the first book by Kate Mosse that I have ever read or listened to and it will be the last. I only thank my stars that I started with a novella rather than one of her epic novels!

Deadly boring

I'm not sure there's a plot here. Just self involved ruminations by a young man regarding his dead brother. There's no suspense and no "ghosts". The only interest was the setting in rural France which does give a touch of "atmosphere." Unfortunately the narrator is a boring as the "story."

Another Great Kate Mosse Book!

The Winter Ghosts is in some ways very different from Kate's previous books, but also similar in other ways. It is a great "read/listen" and I highly recommend it!
