Amazing

I can not recommend this enough. My only complaint was that it finished. I eagerly await anything more from this talented Author.

The gothic beauty, the mystery and the prose is all perfectly aligned to bring you hours of delight. You won't be able to turn this one off.

Atmospheric and gripping

I couldn't stop listening to this wonderfully atmospheric story. The pleasure greatly enhanced by Jenny Agutter's accomplished narration. It's difficult to pigeon-hole the book: it delves into psychology and the paranormal; into a quest for the truth about identity and echos some of the themes in Jane Eyre. It's one of those books that sucks you into it's world and leaves you wishing it hadn't ended.

A Fabulous Twisting Tale

I first came across this book in paperback form and although it was a bit of an epic novel I waded my way through hooked by its secrets and saga. I really wanted to experience the story a second time but just didn't have huge chunks of time to sit down and read it so I purchased the audio version and it is as wonderful as I remember it!

The book takes place over two time periods and I must admit it is the older era which I find the most enrapturing and interesting. By the end of the audiobook the twists and turns will have you on the edge of your seat and you will want to listen to the whole thing again in order to consume every little detail.

Fantastic!

Possibly the best!

OMG what a wonderful story. I became part of this book. The 13th Tale was a magical journey of words, phrases, sentences that became living characters for me. It will be a long time before I can put this story aside and begin another. Thank you so much for such an amazing experience
