Publisher's Summary

An electrifying novel about disputed territory, sibling love, and devastating revenge.
In a silent valley in southern France stands an isolated stone farmhouse, the Mas Lunel. Aramon, the owner, is so haunted by his violent past that he's become incapable of all meaningful action, letting his hunting dogs starve and his land go to ruin.
Meanwhile, his sister, Audrun, alone in her modern bungalow within sight of the Mas Lunel, dreams of exacting retribution for the unspoken betrayals that have blighted her life. Into this closed world comes Anthony Verey, a wealthy but disillusioned antiques dealer from London. When he sets his sights on the Mas, frightening and unstoppable consequences are set in motion.

Saved by the amazing Juliet Stevensen

I've listened to several other Rose Tremain novels and this one left the most to be desired. I couldn't get attached to any of the main characters as their flaws, especially their extreme lack of empathy for others, far outweighed any evident positive attribute. However, I listened to the entire book because Ms. Stevensen's gift of narration and acting is a treat to hear regardless of the quality of the content.

Disappointing

Book: predictable , melodramatic, over-written. Really Rose Tremain, you've done much better.

Juliet Stevenson. Overly dramatic with the faux-French male voices just to through it.

I needed to use the skip forward button
