An absolutely wonderful telling of a love story that blossoms and survives the ravages of a war torn world. Natasha Lester is a most wonderful storyteller. Tears a laughter abound with a healthy dose of hope and love. Many thanks for the joy of listening to all your stories

This story captures the reader like no other in recent times. It weaves around and brings the listener into the story so much so that it is impossible to stop listening until the end. This a little disconcerting if like me you begin the story at bedtime, as there will be no sleep until the very end. Congratulations on what I believe is Joy Ellis’ best book to date. Many thanks even though I had a sleepless night to finish a great story.

What a wonderful book to listen to

I rarely laugh out loud, usually a quiet chuckle,but this story resonated with me in such a way that I found myself laughing out loud a lot. It is such a wonderful story. So could I just say a heartfelt thanks to Marian Keyes for the laughter today. Maybe I will have to listen again tomorrow Thank you

This book seems to be an exact duplicate of Night Sins with a slight twist in the plot and characters the same but with different names. The characters in Night Sins appear in Guilty as Sin as almost a ghost like quality, a one dimensional person. The actual plot is great but this is the first book by Tami Hoag that I won’t recommend

One. Reading error, when Anna arrives in London , at the Airbnb, the reader calls her Elizabeth. What a truely wonderfully crafted story. A book I had to hear from cover to cover, thus missing a nights sleep and a days work. Thanks for the enjoyment

This detective novel is a reasonably good story but the retelling of it with the faded character of the detective is as boring as hell. What a shame an author such as Anthony Horowitz has had to resort to such a style of writing to churn out books such as this.

The story is as tedious as a trans Atlantic crossing would have been. Although the story was obviously well researched, it got totally bogged down in its attempts to keep the reader in the Clipper aircraft . One of Ken Follets worst books

If reading this you would skip the first ten or so chapters which are incredibly boring unless you were studying US law. The rest is a cumbersome read with a few highlights. A very disappointing story from a good author

The dual story was enthralling and caught and held the readers attention from the very beginning till the end.

To grasp the character development and the often complex storyline one must really concentrate. For a listener like me it has kept me awake all night as I become so absorbed in the story I have to reach the end!,
A great story where the author does net tie up all the ends, she leaves some to the imagination of the reader/listener.
