Publisher's Summary

Laura Brandon's promise to her dying father was simple: to visit an elderly woman she'd never heard of before. A woman who remembers nothing-except the distant past. Visiting Sarah Tolley seemed a small enough sacrifice to make. But Laura's promise results in another death: her husband's. And after their five-year-old daughter, Emma, witnesses her father's suicide, Emma refuses to talk about it - to talk at all.Frantic and guilt ridden, Laura contacts the only person who may be able to help. A man she's met only once - six years before. A man who doesn't know he's Emma's real father. Guided only by a child's silence and an old woman's fading memories, the two unravel a tale of love and despair, of bravery and unspeakable evil. A tale that's shrouded in silence...and that unbelievably links them all.

Narrator voice was so annoying

Would you try another book from Diane Chamberlain and/or Justine Eyre?

Yes just not read by this narrator. I tried to listen because the story sounded very interesting but I just couldn't do it.

What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?

can't listen to the narrator

I can't finish the first chapter of this book because the narrator whines and sounds as though she is about to burst into tears. She sounds this way even when she's reading as the child. I have never stopped a book this early but I can't stand her voice.
