It was obvious from the beginning where this story would lead. The narration leaves much to be desired. I cringed every time I heard the child's voice. Speaking of said child, she was a perfect little girl and it got irritating real quick. Nora Roberts has written some interesting thrillers but this wasn't one of them. I think it's time to stop supporting Ms Robert's writing factory.

I am so glad that I listened to this book rather than read it. Peter Forbes is excellent at portraying the characters and evoking the mood of the time. On the frigid Canadian prairie where the wind chills went to -50c this past week, it made for perfect listening. A profoundly moving book that brings to life what horrors must have been endured during the Highland clearances and also as waves of Scots made their forced voyage to Canada.

So sad that there are no further Good Thief Guides. I have listened to each of them and have loved every listening minute. Simon Vance is such a fabulous narrator. What will happen to Charlie and Victoria?
