This book has so much depth - it's wonderful in its details about music and education; it's a great family story; everything I say is only one facet of the plot. Well worth reading and listening to!

Those reviewers who call this boring simply do not understand the novel. This story features art, music, murder, mental telepathy, and a poltergeist! This is a study of character and family brilliantly written and beautifully delivered. I cannot believe it has taken me all these years to discover this author. I will be moving on to the other two novels in this series about the trials and triumphs of this quirky family.

I enjoyed the story of the artistic and high-minded if chaotic Aubrey family. The father in his great struggles for the underdog and less noble speculations in commodities; the musical mother and her kind-hearted and highly strung character and the children, each with their own foibles. Through in the exaggeratedly Scots-speaking cousin, murder, poltergeists and mind-reading and you are in for an enjoyable listen, nicely read by Harriet Carmichael.
