Natasha Lester delivers an immensely sensitive, deeply moving story. Her characters are imbued with life in a background so vividly coloured, it seems tangible. Thoroughly recommended.

I loved listening to The Sisters. A great light prelude to The Ruin. Aiofe McMahon's reading brings the characters to life. Highly recommend adding the story to your library.

Kate Grenville's ability to create a story as real as life itself is unswerving. Each character is as though I had known them, and each setting, each place is alive as if it were a character. Sarah Thornhill's story will stay with me for a long time.

Insightful and inspiring

Grenville's story about her mother is inspiring: how her mother managed a marriage and her desire to work in a time where it was considered inappropriate for a woman to do both provides insights into a challenging time period for women. Grenville's reading of her own writing adds a positive touch and depth.

Another excellent crime story

Dervla McTiernan' s style keeps you enthralled from beginning to end. Brilliantly detailed characters and settings explode into realistic scenes. The story unfolds at a measured pace, with comprehensive insights into how police matters are managed in Ireland. McMahon's reading is well- paced and heightens the Irish context. Highly recommended.

A fascinating exploration of loneliness

Michelle Obama's story is honest, compelling and inspiring. I'm her own words and narration we learn about her upbringing, her heritage and her path in life and how she channelled her every challenge with strength of character, resilience and an optimistic outlook. I was deeply moved by this story and thoroughly recommend it.

Great story that had me binge listening!
