A thriller with an interesting twist.. And the narrator was excellent. I think a film producer should have a look at the story as a film..

I'd say 'brilliant'

An unusual story. I loved it. In my opinion not a story men would enjoy very much...

Wonderful.

I've read quite a few novels by Hildred Billings. She is an author I follow.. There's a wide disparity in her writing.. Many are written to appeal to a wider western audience.. with an American location.. and I enjoy those too.. But I think it's when she writes in a Japanese setting her true love shows. She has a love affair with Japan.. They usually are deeper books. This one I liked very much.

Absorbing..Different.

E.J. Noyes is a fabulous writer; original and talented. So far I've read all of her books. The 'Ask, Tell' series is my favorite but all of her books are outstanding. It'good she's so prolific and how she manages to write to the extent she does, whilst holding down a full time 'other' job, is amazing. The worst part of reading any of her books is completing it.. The joy of a 'first read' is over. The narrator was also very good.

Definitely Five Stars or even more

E.J. Noyes writes exceptional books.. Another wonderful effort following the first in the series begun in 'Ask, Tell'.. Her stories are so original and this one covered the challenging condition of PTSD.. wrapped up in the continuing love story of Sabine and Bec., Read the books in sequence for the full impact. A story you won't forget, peopled by characters you just have to like. The narration was well done.

No...

This story somehow or other just didn't get me in.. It was set in Antarctica..which should have worked as an amazing setting but somehow it hardly rated.. it may as well have been Florida, or Cuba or anywhere really. So the setting didn't work and nor did the characters. Nothing in the story grabbed me.

Love it.!

Have read the print version a few times and now have listened to the Audible edition . This is a really excellent story. Harper Bliss writes so well and I think this is one of her best. The narration was also excellent. I highly recommend the book itself and the narrator.

Excellent

Loved this book. Completely original. Bought it on spec and it was an unknown quantity... but am so glad I did. Excellent narrator too.

Not bad

If I hadn't previously read 'Finding the Grain' I probably would have enjoyed this book more. This was run of the mill enjoyable. ''Finding the Grain' was similar in that they are each stories of a long lost love regained.. but one was ok... and the other unforgettable.

A wonderful book

Heartbreaking and so well written. Once you start reading it you have to continue. The narrator was excellent. A story that stays with you.
