Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Rebecca Lee is joined by several others as Chloe prepares for her dream wedding to Sam at a small church beside Mockbeggar Woods, outside the village where Sam grew up. Little does Chloe know that the church is available only because the villagers, including Sam's family, know Mockbeggar's history. The distinguished voices of the other narrators make the most of the story's fairy-tale elements and provide a strong sense of place. Narrator Tamsin Kennard's slower pacing and greater sibilance give the character of grandmother Selina a threatening aspect that is not entirely unexpected. Listeners will enjoy following along as the characters deal with their pasts and the increasingly malevolent woods, which have already cost them too much.
