What made the experience of listening to Ember Island the most enjoyable?
I was keen to read more of this author's books as I really love Australian historical novels, and previous books have been really entertaining. The book's setting is close to home, so it was easy to visualise the scenery on Ember Island.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Ember Island?
Coming to terms with the place of women in that time frame was grounding. How our lives have changed. Yes it really is hard to believe the main character Tilly was so submissive, however that was life. It really was a man's world, and woman really shouldn't have an opinion and display of temper and hostility was not tolerated. How things have changed!
Have you listened to any of Jennifer Vuletic’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have to be honest, I really missed the storytelling of Caroline Lee. It took me the whole book to get used to Jennifer Vuletic's narration, and am coming to terms that to listen to more of Kimberley Freeman's audiobooks will mean enduring more of Vuletic's narration. I am finding today I am now looking for narration's by Caroline Lee, as I just want to hear her beautiful voice and interpretation of the author's word. The narrator can make or break a great book. I do hope the author uses Caroline Lee again in any future novels as Vuletic's performance really detracts from this book and Caroline Lee is a star.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Deceit, betrayal, and desperation. A women's life in the Victorian era.
Any additional comments?
A great story by the author yet again.

Once again Kimberley Freeman has lived up to my expectations ! I love the " I didn't see that coming moments! " Kimberley has a flare for intertwining the past and the present in a way no one else can match. Added to the pleasure of this book is the expert narration of Jennifer Vuletic .They are in a class all their own !!
