Lily was abducted from outside her high school gates. For eight long years, she's been locked away from the outside world. During that time she's changed from a girl into a woman. She's had a baby. And now she has seized her chance and escaped. Running for her life, with her daughter in her arms, she returns to her family and the life she used to know - to her much-loved twin sister, Abby; her mum; her high school boyfriend - and her freedom. But is it possible to go back?

The narrator's normal reading voice was good, but for male characters she used a "3 Billy Goats Gruff" cartoon style which interrupted the flow of the story.

My name is Emma Cartwright. Three years ago I was Susan Webster, and I murdered my 12-week-old son Dylan. I have no memory of what happened but you believe what your loved ones, your doctor and the police are telling you, don't you? But if you can't remember what happened, how can you be sure that they are telling the truth? And if there was the smallest chance your son was alive, wouldn't you do anything to get him back? A fantastic debut from an outstanding talent.

Excellent story but irritating details. Patients in secure hospitals in the U.K. Do Not have numbers, they are addressed by their names. They do not sleep in cells or have bunk beds, most have single rooms. They do not see visitors in prison type mass visiting areas, they have private visits, supervised by staff if necessary for safety.

Glamorous siblings Henry and Mary Crawford have captivated the Bertrams of Mansfield Park. Sisters Maria and Julia compete for Henry's attention. Their brother Edmund falls hard for Mary. The one exception is the Bertrams' shy cousin, Fanny Price. Penniless, plain and raised to believe she has little worth, Fanny has long accepted that Edmund will never love her as she loves him. He will marry another - just let it not be a girl like Mary Crawford! But when Fanny's seafaring brother gives her an ancient amber cross, the talisman reveals to her what kind of girl Mary Crawford really is.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I expected something in Jane Austen's style. This is pornographic rubbish.

What will your next listen be?

Thinking of closing account, waste of money if description is inaccurate

Would you be willing to try another one of MacAllister Lee’s performances?

No

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

I'd like a refund

This novel of page-turning action and adventure poses the question, "If a society had no knowledge of Christianity, and then a Bible were discovered, what would happen?" Four hundred years after a deadly virus and nuclear war destroyed the modern world, a new and noble civilization emerges. In this kingdom, called Chiveis, snow-capped mountains provide protection, and fields and livestock provide food. The people live medieval-style lives, with almost no knowledge of the "ancient" world.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A well constructed plot. This sounded like a Disney adventure.

Would you ever listen to anything by Bryan M. Litfin again?

Possibly

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Ray Porter?

I wouldn't want anyone to waste their time on this poor quality material

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Sword?

all of it
