She becomes obsessed with finding proof that the woman existed. Follow Mary Lou to the life-threatening climax in this frigid winter of 1950.

Paranormal Thriller

Those who like psychological/paranormal thrillers will find this book very detailed and intriguing. The unfolding story will keep the listener wondering what will happen to the main character and how will the mystery end. The narrator does a great job keeping the story flowing and her voice interpretation of each of the many characters was well done.

Narration was Great!

Story that has some truth to it. It was a great book but would wanted to know more on how the main character ended up. Maybe a second book. It will arrive. The narration was great. She did the characters with ease and had to remember them throughout which may not of been easy. It was easy to listen too.

Narrator is awful

Would you try another book written by Helen Macie Osterman or narrated by Lolita Anderson?

Never narrated by Lolita Anderson, with the exception of the main character she talks as if she has a golf ball in her mouth!! The voices are so muffled its laughable. I couldn't get passed the first hour because it is unlistenable.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

See above, good grief!
