I love Robyn’s stories and it’s always a bonus to have Thérèse perform them. And that’s exactly what she does. What a talented narrator she is! The two main characters in this story have such complicated histories. It was one of those books where the reader comes to understand both points of view. I loved that.

Robyn Carr is one of my favorite authors, I have either read or it is on my list to read every book. Some I have read numerous times and still go back to them again. Terese Plummer is such a good narrator, she brings the books to life.
