Publisher's Summary

In 1842, two sisters drunkenly debate their future, their family chocolate business has failed and so they decide to open a séance parlour. The locals are shocked but soon their shop is crammed with people wanting to contact the dead.

Despite their change in fortune, a rift forms between the sisters, as young sister Judy gets her novel published, finds a man and proves to be more capable of contacting spirits than Maggie. Spurred on by jealousy, Maggie tries harder, and soon even the Queen is consulting her. The Church decides they must be stopped by any means possible, but these women will not go down without a fight.

    "Great story & characters."
    Where does The Blackheath Seance Parlour rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 20 but that's because I love the book so much.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blackheath Seance Parlour?

    Don't want to give anything away.


    Have you listened to any of Matthew Mullane’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Nope haven't listened to him before but he was good.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book makes you care about the characters and the journey.


    Any additional comments?

    I would of liked a woman narrating the story because of the female leads.

    Story
    "A fantastical listen"

    A great audio book. Laugh out loud moments, romantic, scary, weepy, a really good listen. The narrator has a wide variety of voices and coupled with the sound effects he keeps you hooked into the story.

    Well worth a listen.
