Publisher's Summary

From Italy in 1733 to Edinburgh in 1831 to a series of chilling murders in London in 1870 and a lethal game of revenge decades later, a watch touches lives with misfortune - until it comes into the hands of one young woman who might be able to stop it for good. 

This outstanding collaboration between four outstanding novelists follows characters who are irrevocably linked by fate, each one playing a key role in breaking the curse once and for all.

Narration was bad, just bad

I had a hard time hearing the story because the narrator’s character voice was so bad. Makes me sad because Susanna Kearsley is my favorite author and I was really looking forward to this book. 😞

I love this! What a "novel" idea-lol!

I had a hard time getting into it, in the first story, which is odd because Susanna Kearsley is one of my favorite authors, so it might have been just life distractions. But towards the end of the first part of the story I was hooked. What an awesome idea to tell a story threaded through time told by different authors. It made it oddly more realistic because I knew some of the characters as I had read stories including them before.(Huber). The story is very compelling and leaves you anxious to know the next part. Plus, I've been introduced to new characters and authors with whom I now wish to become acquainted! What a unique approach to a story and a wonderful idea to widen the authors exposure.

Good story, annoying narrator

I find myself agreeing with other reviewers about the poor narration. The story was, however, sufficiently intriguing to listen anyway. I simply turned up the speed a little and listened only while occupied with other tasks in order to minimize the annoyance.

Terrible narrator

I was so excited when this book came out because I love Susanna Kearsley. However, the narration is so bad I can’t finish the book. Such a disappointment

Very Enjoyable

The authors did an excellent job with the stories linked by a malevolent watch. Moving forward through time meant each writer could feature their own strengths.
The narrator Anne Flosnik evokes strong opinions of her voice and style. I’m a fan so she added to my pleasure.

Enjoyed it.

I very much enjoyed the different twists written by each author. It all was a good listen. I don't relate to negative reviews concerning the performance. I'm guessing that it just stemmed from having a different narrator from the previous book. This narrator was very good. Nice cadence, good character change definition. Nice accent.

Disappointed

I LOVE Susanna Kearsley but this was not up to her normal standards. I think the narrator ruined it. She was awful. Perhaps with someone else, it would’ve been more tolerable to listen to and I could’ve enjoyed the storyline more. Add it was, I just gritted my teeth and finished as soon as I could.

Unfortunate

I’m not one to write negative reviews, but felt like I must. I had to turn the book off after 45 mins. Narration was awful. It’s unfortunate because I was looking forward to a new Lady Darby story by Anna Lee Huber. Wasted one of my precious credits!

Underwhelming

Struggled to continue to finish the first section, just no story line to grasp. Only the last 2 sections were somewhat worth listening to, but barely. Expected so much more from these writers. very disappointed...

disappointed

struggling to finish as voice sounds so synthesised but love the story it brings back some old recognisable character's
