Robert Bailey has successfully continued the with many of the characters from his first book in this series. It is a heart stopping story. Not only do you get pulled into the plot but the story also serves as a good reminder just how bad the KKK were and those still in it continue to be. I strongly recommend you listen to the 4 books in order because your understanding of the characters builds from the first book. An epic story

Excellent in all sorts of ways

Initially, at the start, it may seem slightly strange but the lay of the land is being set. The drama that unfolds is tense, believable and the characters are all plausible. The trial itself is well written with twists and turns. A definite one to listen to.

Simply a great story

DS has done it again and created a story that flows at a good speed, has a lovely enduring family history full of twists and turns. The characters are believable and there is no repetition dragging the plot out. Can't recommend more highly enough, once you start it you won't want to stop.

Too 'left of field' with ghosts etc!

The premise of the story re the tragedy that happens whilst Jane is at University almost seems a side line to a never ending circle of the same old same old story that goes on and on. Not one of fern Michaels better stories and perhaps one to miss instead of using up a credit.

Boring, Dull, Repetitive. A waste of a credit

Many of Fern Michael's book are great but this was dull, boring and had no pace to it. The story went round and round in circles and then all of a sudden, as though she became bored and didn't know how to end the story, it ended!

A total waste of time. The fact it took me three to four weeks to get through it when normally I can listen to a book in 3 days, says it all. I kept going thinking, hoping, something would change: Alas no!

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS

Teenagers misplaced loyalty

Having worked for 20 years in a boys boarding house running boarding with my husband in a private school and also having taught in the state sector as well for many years, this misplaced loyalty issue is massive. It doesn't matter if a child comes from a poor, rich or middle income family, kids have this crazy idea, regardless of the implications, that 'snitching' as they like to call it, seems to show you're not a true friend and that it breaks some hidden code. The issues addressed in the story re the boys not telling the truth immediately, is so real. You can't assume it's some child from a rich family, its not, its a deep seated culture within all schools and within the student body of all schools. Fortunately not all of a school's student body will act like this, but a large number. Somehow, parents and schools need to tackle this problem that actually telling the truth, expressing what one knows is ok to speak out about and that there are so many ways information can be gathered and used so as not to highlight a person has spoken out. From a very young age continuing until a child leaves school, this message about being positive on speaking out has to be made a priority. In this story, I'm glad DS also raises the crazy out dated belief that just because a girl might dress in a certain way or drink alcohol she was, "asking" to be attacked/raped. What is it going to take to change such mentality? As women we should be able to dress as we like, drink alcohol etc and not fear we could be attacked. DS addresses this issue really well and the way it shouldn't be allowed for lawyers to attack rape victims and make it look like they were, "asking to be attacked". No women asks to be attacked, and DS addresses this really well

Just brilliant

whilst at points the story seems to be a little over the top it is never the less a great listen and one that keeps you wanting to while away time too.

A different type of DS story but great

A great listen with lots of interesting historical facts that pull a lovely story all together.

Don't bother, no substance or real story

This book feels like its just words being set on paper for the sake of churning out another book. It lacks depth, substance and any real detail. The underlying theme is poor in terms of its detail and depth. Too much spinning out of a story resulting in nothing.
