It's not one of Frances Hodgson Burnett's well known stories, but I've always enjoyed this adventure. Yes it's dated, and somewhat heavy on Victorian spiritualism, but if you can look past those moments it's an enjoyable story, with real moments of danger and a satisfying ending.

The narration was good, although I did notice one line which the narrator read in the wrong character's voice. Overall though, he uses a good range of voices for the different characters, and his accents are good.

The most annoying thing about this audiobook, and it's totally unnecessary, is that it has been copied over from a CD at some point, but instead of editing out the CD breaks they have left them in, so every hour or so the narration is interrupted by an American Woman telling you 'this story is continued on disk X'. She also introduces each chapter, which seems odd. It more than a little ruins the mood, which is a pity, as overall I was very happy with this purchase.
