Publisher's Summary

Present day: Applecote Manor captivates Jessie with dreams of hazy summers in the Cotswolds, but the house has an unsettling history, and strange rumours surround the estate....

The '50s: When teenage Margot and her three sisters arrive at Applecote during the heatwave of '59, they find their aunt and uncle still reeling from the disappearance of their daughter, Audrey, five years before. Drawn into the life Audrey left behind, the stifling summer takes a shocking, deadly turn.

Not for the normal of hearing

Probably very good if you are a dog with their superior hearing. This audio book is recorded at such a low volume that even at full volume you need to be in a place with no background sound. Try to listen in a car, going for a walk and you have to strain to hear it. This seems to be becoming more common with audible recordings which if check with monitoring software you will find are recorded at a level many decibels below where any clipping would occur. There is nothing wrong with the recordings except this. Using headphone boosters you can get acceptable levels of volume. But why should you need this, I don't want to have to have extra bits and cables to carry around when it would be the simplest thing in the world deliver the books with sensible volume levels. I can do it with a piece of consumer software costing £50. There are multiple complaints about this on the internet yet Audible does nothing.

Oh My Word - Such a let down

I simply cannot finish this book. Such a good idea for a story, but so badly executed. No depth to the characters at all. Couldn't visualise any of them. And as for the narration - just dreadful. Read in a staccato fashion as though Karen Cass was firing verbal bullets. Waste of my monthly credit and the time I spent trying to listen to it.

Weak characters no female role models

Very weak female characters, all pathetically whiny and flimsy. The modern day Jesse interested in nothing but babies, a spoilt housewife with no idea of how the mortgage gets paid. No role models here. No substance around many characters except very cliche one liners. The mother working in Morocco in 1959 even though she has no qualifications other than lying on a chaise. Completely ungrounded in a convincing reality, the story could have been so much more interesting and dimensional. Yet another nonsense missing child story that is all too fashionable at the moment, there are loads of them just the same on audible with no attempt at originality. Just a stream of lovely words about meadows and boys.
