The nightmare home. We thought we'd found our haven, a cottage deep in the heart of the forest. Quaint, charming, maybe a little run-down, but so peaceful. The woodland animals and birds couldn't have been more neighbourly. That was the first part of the Magic. Midge's painting and my music soared to new heights of creativity. That was another part of the Magic. Our sensing, our feelings, our love for each other - well, that became the supreme Magic. But the cottage had an alternative side. The Bad Magic.

Where does The Magic Cottage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its the only one.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Although the narrator was very good when speaking in a man's voice, he was very annoying and sometimes comical, when speaking as his wife. The audiobook should have had at least two narrators.
