Listeners join Jane in postwar England as she marries local doctor Augustine Lawrence. Her goal is to continue to lead an independent life under the guise of being a respectable married woman. Things get complicated, however, when she starts to fall in love with her husband and learns his darkest, most terrifying, secrets. Narrator Mandy Weston's cool narration is the perfect match to this tale, making the twists and turns in the plot especially surprising. Weston's pacing helps to build the tension, and her strong characterizations help differentiate the cast of strange characters. This tale mixes gothic horror, ghosts, and a love story to create a potent listen. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
