Publisher's Summary

Orphaned following a car accident, struggling with her grief, and a burden on her aunt, Miranda Fisher is sent to a boarding school on the Welsh border, miles from her native London. When she returns after the Christmas holiday, she learns that her favorite teacher has left the school, suddenly, and with no apparent reason. 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? Or simply the invention of a traumatized mind? Plagued with uncertainty, nightmares, and confusion, she knows that however painful it might be - she must discover the truth, and lay her fears to rest in what is a thrilling and unexpected climax to this taught psychological thriller.

I wanted to like this...

I would have given this 2 stars, but I like the very end of the story.
This was a very slow story... took forever to get moving. it just didn't seem to make it for me. I really had to struggle to listen to this till the end.
I didn't like any of the people in the book I guess , like everything that happened, was just to far stretched.
I was not to happy with the narrator. When she did one of the voices, she reminded me of the wicked witch in The Wizard Of Oz.
"ill get you my pretty!, and your little dog too!"

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

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.
