A pretty fantastic ghost story by a writer better known for more romantic or child-friendly fare. The reading is perfectly clear, although it could have been a bit more atmospheric.

Lovely story very well read would have given five stats,but ended a bit too abruptly for me.

Unexpected

(3 stars)

This short story is not at all what I expected. What I thought I would read was a happy little story about two girls sharing a summer together. What I got was a deep, sad and otherworldly tale, that ends with sudden and sorrowful abruptness. I'm not sure if the author intended to write it for children, but it certainly doesn't seem like a children's story to me. So any parents out there thinking of giving this to their kids to read/listen to might like to peruse it first. Many thanks to the reader for a terrific narration.

A bit unusual

(4 stars)

The reader did a good job. The story; however, was very unusual and not for children...even though it is about a child.
