Her new house-mistress appears to take an instant dislike to her. Miranda stumbles on information which leads her to believe her life is in danger, however, it proves difficult to convince even her best friend that this is the case. Who was the stranger on the train that seemed so familiar to her? Why did her teacher, Miss Price, leave the school so unexpectedly? Who, or what, is she in danger from? Is the danger real?

Thank goodness for the end

I mean that in both that I was happy the end finally came to this story, and that it totally surprised me. So much so that it almost earned another star. However, it is a pet peeve of mine to have the characters be all good or all evil. This just doesn't happen and it makes the story predictable and drag. That's what this story did ...until the end. I cannot say I'd eagerly listen to a second installment, but I would be curious enough to try it. I thought the narrator did a fabulous job. She was easy on my ears and did justice to what she was given.
I was gifted this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

Easy Listen

What did you love best about Miranda's Fortune?

Miranda was a young, but strong character. Youth vs adults. Good vs bad. We are trained as youngsters to trust adults, but that is not always the case.


What did you like best about this story?

Miranda navigated her troubles well. Good always wins in the end.


Have you listened to any of Nano Nagle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narration was smooth and easy to follow. The narrator distinguished the many different characters' voices well.
