Publisher's Summary

A short story inspired by Northern Ireland's famous Cooneen ghost.
A tale of family, friends, and fear....
And the unnatural force that threatens to ruin everything....
March 1913: Struggling to make ends meet, widow Bridget Murphy finds life in rural Ireland difficult, raising six children while farming her small acreage. With the help of neighbors and friends, Bridget is able to cope with the many arduous tasks and chores required of her.
When an unnatural and terrifying force invades their house, threatening their family, Bridget is surprised to see so many backs turning on her. Fearing for themselves, those she once counted on for help and support will not risk their safety for her. Father Smyth, their priest, is the only one who stands alongside their family in the battle against the uninvited and fearsome poltergeist. But, prayers alone won't run the farm. Will Bridget find a way to save her home and her family before there's nowhere left to turn?

Short And Well-Written

Would you listen to An Unbidden Visitor again? Why?

Yes. This title is worth sharing with others.

What about Elizabeth Klett’s performance did you like?

She was clear and had good pacing. I really liked her accent! She's very easy to listen to!

Any additional comments?

I really liked this short story. It's well-written and to the point. The premise was strong and it fit the description.

There are times that made me feel how tense the situation was and I could empathize with all the characters throughout.

The narrator, Elizabeth Klett, did an excellent job reading this title. I think she was the perfect choice for this role.

The sound quality was good.

This title was well worth the time spent listening to it. I would recommend this to anybody that likes supernatural short stories.

I'm looking forward to more from this author/narrator duo.

Well written short story based on historical event

This is the novelization of the story of the Coneen ghost, a famous Irish poltergeist, and how it affected Bridget and her children, showing how their neighbors turned their backs on them leaving them with few choices.

It was a very short and exquisite listen. The characters are well portrayed and the moments of tension kept me on the edge of my seat. I have just a small complaint, and that I would have preferred something much longer. Short stories usually leave me wanting for more, and this could have made a great longer story.

Elizabeth Klett is, as always, wonderful. She has an amazing ability narrating stories, carefully interpreting each character with a unique style and voice. Her accents are also credible, and the audio production is spotless. It's clear that Klett has ample experience as a narrator and she enjoys what she does.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Dianne Ascroft. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
