Publisher's Summary

Running away isn't always an escape...

After a traumatic experience with her graduate school professor, Anne Fleming disposes of all her possessions, boards a plane, and plans to check out of life. But a chance meeting on an international flight leads her to Wildfell, a gothic mansion north of London. At first glance, Wildfell seems like the perfect place to hide out, and Anne is intrigued by its strange atmosphere and history of disappearances and deaths. But echoing voices, ghostly mists, a mute girl with a sketchbook full of murders, and a possessive landlady force her to confront her deepest fears. Anne's budding romance with gorgeous Irish actor Bain Tierney ties her to the house. But when Wildfell tenants begin disappearing and dying, Anne must decide if she trusts Bain. Is anyone in the house who they claim to be? Or are there are other forces at work inside Wildfell? And will they ever let her leave?

A bit disappointing

I struggled to get to the end of this book . The story was good but I did not like the narrator, it made it hard to listen to.

Interesting plot, but author rambles

After having read The Meadows, another story by Ms Clarke, I thought I’d see how her first book was. Though the overall plot was interesting, I felt like the author rambled way too much, trying to find ways to bring in necessary characters, this resulted in vast swaths of unnecessary and boring story. The performer was decent, but could use some direction or coaching on how to handle some of the longer narratives. Often sounding like a preacher in a pulpit delivering every line with the exact same cadence. But her command of voices, and reasonably good accents helped her carry through, though please do a little more study before trying a New York or South African accent again. Read The Meadows, a much better book.

The narration is terrible

The story isn’t bad, it’s worth reading because it is in a series, but it isn’t the best book in the series. The narration is distracting, terrible and made the book so unpleasant to listen to that I had to stop listening and read the book instead.

Not the best

This is my least favorite London Clarke book. The narration is awful. Sipping a cup of coffee and seeing a demon invoke the same tone of voice of the narrator. It takes away from the book. The story is okay but not riveting. There are many loose ends. Use your credits for Ms. Clarke’s other books.
