Publisher's Summary

Gilly Ramsey's lonely childhood was brightened only by visits to her godmother until her death, when the then grown-up Gilly inherited the family cottage, Thornyhold. With its magical and peaceful strength and its sovereign defenses against evil, Thornyhold strikes an end to Gilly's loneliness, despite its revealing her family's history of witchcraft.

Great story

Great story, but if I didn’t know story (it’s my favorite book), I wouldn’t know what was happening. Even with my phone at full volume, I could barely hear it!!Very disappointed at that.

Sound quality terrible. Story chopped.

The sound quality seems as if the reader's voiced is muffled by sheets of cotton. There are also frequently rumbly background noises as if the microphone is being moved or rubbed.
The story is severely abridged, missing some of the most charming detail.
A favorite story treated very poorly.
I liked the narration, when audible, and the sound tolerable.

An old favorite

This story was enjoyed but sadly spoilt by low volume and too fast speech.Mary Stewart is one of my favourite authors.
