Reviews


(3 stars)

The whole time I was internally screaming that the house was hers, evict Peter, put the aunt in her place!! But I guess she had been so pulverised by her aunt's religion that she practically had Stockholm syndrome. Well written, well read (though the high and low pitched character voices bordered on Pythonesque). One star for being an unrelenting horrible story (which I knew going into it and selected it for that) and four stars for the reading.

Excellent reader, always enjoy Simon Evers reading. But apathetic story! Very well written though! If it was a true story it might be OK but for fiction it was awful. Who would want to read or write a story with an ending like that

Oh My...


(5 stars)

As a Trollope fan I was looking forward to this book which is well done, of course. I’m wrung out emotionally from wanting to strangle the aunt through the entire story! Simon Evers is the main reason to listen. The young woman, Linda, is of singular innocence which makes this a very sad story indeed.

Horrible story


(1 stars)

I spent most of this story being frustrated with all the characters for one reason or another. The ending was not happy which is a definite downer for me. The reading however was excellent.


(5 stars)

Pathetic but well told. As always, masterfully read by Simon Evers.
