Publisher's Summary

Angus Gregory is 14 years old when he moves to Fairhope, Wisconsin, with his family. The first thing to strike him, when he moves to the small town, are the Missing posters of the boy from the college. The second thing is the lady on the rooftops.
Only Angus can see her - but she's there - dressed in a black cloak, her eyes focused straight ahead as she walks hurriedly across the rooftops of the buildings downtown.
Angus thinks he might go mad, holding this secret, knowing that she's there but realizing that no one else can see her. But then one day, when he's on a camping trip with some boys from his school, as they sit around the campfire telling ghost stories, another boy reveals that he's also been seeing the lady on the rooftops.
Together, the two of them team up to find out who she was, why she's there and what she's so desperately searching for as she rises up from her plot - crosses the graveyard and walks back and forth across the downtown buildings before coming back to her resting place and falling headfirst, back into the ground.

Not Necessarily Worth It

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this whole read until it started to wind down and I realized that I wasn't going to get any kind of explanation for the bizarre happenings in the story. I love a story with some weird stuff going on - like a witch that walks purposefully across roof tops that can only be seen by some - but I sort of require that kind of content to be wrapped up in some way. It's only satisfying if there is some morsel of information that can at least allow me to take some leap to some conclusion about what was going on. In my world, even if the story was interesting until close to the end, if the end is a total failure (which, this one was) than the book wasn't worth reading. I can't recommend a story with no ending to any of my friends! I did enjoy the narration, though.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Surprisingly great read!

Would you listen to The Lady on the Rooftops again? Why?

I received this book for free as a trade for an honest review. Yes I would read this book again! At the beginning and was unsure, but this book turned out to be a creepy book that I will definitely read more than once.

What did you like best about this story?

Which character – as performed by Kevin Iggens – was your favorite?

My favorite character is angus Gregory. I feel for him being a kid who had to move away from what was familiar to him and go along with his mom to a town that had strict rules and scares.?

Who was the most memorable character of The Lady on the Rooftops and why?

I'd have to say angus again. His story left a mark as the changes he faced.

Any additional comments?

This was a great read! The narrator performed wonderfully in my opinion!!
