When 13-year-old Lily's inventor father vanishes on a routine Zeppelin flight, Lily's determined to find out the truth behind his disappearance. But she's not the only one searching for her father; there are silver-eyed men in the shadows who will stop at nothing to find him. With Robert, the local clockmaker's son, Lily travels to London, where they soon discover that she holds the key to the mystery...a mystery closer to Lily's heart than she could have ever imagined.

I bought this book so my daughter and I could listen together as she is reading the book at the moment.
Sadly the narration is so disappointing, the voice is reminiscent of the narration given for the blind over films and tv. The intonations and stress within sentences is completely skewed and off putting. The voice is monotone and dull.
What is a wonderful children’s story has been lost in this extremely unanimated reading.
