Publisher's Summary

A story of mystery, love and revenge.

Bridget Gether's parents were killed in the wartime blitz, so she had lived with the Overmeers at Balderstone, their sprawling property in the Northumbrian countryside, since she was a child.

Unaware that she had been manipulated into agreeing to marry their son, Laurence, an encounter with Bruce Dickenson, the son of a neighbouring farmer, opened her eyes to the possibility that she might be making a serious mistake.

Although Bridget told herself she had loved Laurence for years, could she now trust him? Had he been seeing someone else all the time he had been courting her? She decided that there were sufficient grounds for doubt, so she called off the marriage.

However, she had not reckoned with the formidable Overmeer family, whose desperate financial straits compelled them to take steps to protect their interests. As for Laurence, he could not forgive Bridget for the humiliation of rejection, so he planned to punish her. But someone else was also planning revenge, the outcome of which would shake the very foundations of the Overmeer family.

The Blind Years

Not a bad story of Bridget and her maturity from a teenager to a young 22 year old woman. I think my only sadness was that it is only read by one person, I’ve heard Jack and it was narrated by a man and a women, as most books have male and female characters, I’d like to hear it with a male and female narrator for each part. That’s all.

All in all a reasonable listen but uninspiring.

All in all an uninspiring listen. Voiced a little stiff and wrong accents at parts.

Disappointing

Well narrated but story is slow, predictable and not up to her usual standard. Disappointed to say the least.
