Publisher's Summary

After her mother's suicide, Abbie Myers returns home to the Lake District with her young child - and no wedding ring. Estranged from her turbulent family for many years, Abbie is heartbroken when she hears that they blame her for this tragedy.
Determined to uncover her mother's past, Abbie approaches her beloved grandmother, Millie, in search of answers. The old woman reveals the story of how she travelled to Russia in 1911 as a young governess and became caught up in the revolution.
As Abbie struggles to reconcile with her family, and to support herself and her child, she realizes that those long-ago events created aftershocks that threaten to upset the fragile peace she longs to create.
Set against the backdrops of the English Lake District in the 1960s and the upheavals of revolutionary Russia, The Amber Keeper is a sweeping tale of jealousy and revenge, reconciliation and forgiveness.

What did you like best about The Amber Keeper? What did you like least?

The story could have held my interest, but the narration's appalling. I kept wondering if your narrator is actually a robot. Although I enjoy audio books....I will be very careful to check as to who the narrator is before I order future books.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Amber Keeper?

I can answer this better after I READ it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Duerden?

anyone....absolutely anyone

Did The Amber Keeper inspire you to do anything? shut the sound off

Any additional comments?

I could have enjoyed this story. It had a very interesting start, and I'm sure that reading it will be a pleasure. I will read the written word to finish.............
