Historical Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

The most appealing feature of this audiobook by Margo Livesey is Ell Potter's spirited rendering of the characters' Scottish accents. Potter captures the atmosphere of late-nineteenth-century Scottish country life and her young heroine's uncertain grasp of her gift of precognition. Livesey, best known for her previous novel THE BOY IN THE FIELD, stands at the opposite pole from a thriller author. Here she offers no powerful themes, urgent conflicts, or memorable resolution. This story is ultimately fulfilling but requires patience and the benefit of a gifted and resourceful narrator who can hold the ear even when the story lacks direction.
