Another interesting plot from Fleur with two timelines that keep you wondering how they will merge.
enjoyed the narration by Lani John Tupu again. The climax had me finish the last couple hours in one sitting. ☺

I really enjoyed this story. It was easy listening with good description of the location, people and activity. Just enough drama to keep you interested in the highs and lows of this family story, with a predictable and happy ending.

I have always loved Ravi's talks and chose this audio book to continue to hear from him since he went Home earlier this year. It did not disappoint, giving truth and meaning to the fabric of life. There were many rewinds to grasp the fullness of a point and chuckles and tears too.
Highly recommended.

Having only ever read abridged versions to my children, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole story. The reading by Virginia McKenna with accents included, made it all the more entrancing.
A beautiful children's story of transformation.

Another cracker of a story by Jane Harper.

I loved the first two audio books she wrote and was gifted the paper back of The Lost Man for Christmas. I enjoyed it so much and wanted my husband to enjoy it so we are listening together. Of course I have listened to the end already, while working at home, and was not disappointed by Steve's telling of this gripping story.
Highly recommend this in either format.

I couldn't put it down even though it was predictable after a point.
Glad there were not more details of the sadistic abuse perpetrated.
A happy ending makes me happy.

This tale was alot rougher than others I have enjoyed. Didn't like the bad language but acknowledge it fitted the characters. Might not listen to new stories if the author goes down this path again.

Could not put it down!

I loved the farm setting, identifying with the landscape and life.
The story had a number of threads which had me guessing how they would come together till the end.
I am glad Detective Burrows made an appearance in this story, though I am not sure when he divorced his previous wife.
Highly recommended with satisfactory resolutions.
