      I loved this book which I read as an audio narrated by Humphrey Bower a talented actor who truly brought this story to life The story is a fictionalised account of the true life Lord Lucan, suspected of the murder of his children s nanny and missing for the past 40 years I was so persuaded about the reality of this account I proceeded to search on line to learn of this murder case that captured the imagination of the the population in the 1970s and beyond.The novel, set in Tasmania and narrated [...]

    3. Daniella says:
      Thought it was going to be about murder but still a pretty good bop nonetheless It all came together really nicely in the last few chapters

    4. Dillwynia Peter says:
      This novel, amongst other things, is a take on the disappearance of Lord Lucan such a scandalous sensation in 1974 now so few people remember the events It is also a tale of love, relationships the effects of personal histories on relationships, especially on those that have experienced tramatic events in the past.The tale is believable the characters are strong, with excellent different voices Lilly s tale of Vietnam is truly horrific, but most child survivors have similar scarifying tales Tasm [...]

      This was a beautiful book Haunting and sad but beautiful.

    6. Jennifer (JC-S) says:
      I had shed the past to become, I liked to think, something new This novel draws on the real life case of Lord Lucan, who disappeared from Belgravia on the night of 7 November 1974 following the brutal murder of his children s nanny In Ms Rose s novel, Lord Lucan has become Henry Kennedy, a Scotsman who emigrates to Australia and settles in Tasmania.Henry is living a quiet life outside Hobart with his partner Lili when he is diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer The growths in his brain impact o [...]

      Lord Lucan is a rich and powerful man In 1974, his nanny was murdered and his estranged wife accused him of entering her house and trying to kill her, instead Lord Lucan vanishes into the night, along with his considerable gambling debts Newspapers and the public are sure he is guilty In Tasmania, Henry Kennedy lives in a house he built himself He arrived there after struggling to stay alive in a hut in Africa, after avoiding friendships, relationships He is a mad who has something to hide Is he [...]

    8. Simona says:
      I loved this book and was intrigued to find where it was going and looking at the concept of how one person can change who they were of being a very shallow person to having everything totally stripped away and a chance to begin to a degree, again though not with out having to pay in one way or another and how stature in life may not at times make to realise how the very simple and wonderful things in life can bring you pleasure and wonderful friendships yes I would recommend this beautifully wr [...]

    9. Sharon says:
      Loved this book, extremely well written and imagined, wonderfully descriptive This is a story of redemption I know that word is over used but it fits here and forgiveness or perhaps acceptance of self and others People and events aren t as they seem and there are infinite subtle shades of grey What makes a person good Or evil Are we condemned by others perceptions of us One man becomes two people during his lifetime and sheds his old self his former character, past actions and motivations are re [...]

    10. Lianda Ludwig says:
      This is a compelling story, written so poetically by author Heather Rose I read the audio version narrated by Humphrey Bowers, who is the 1 best reader I ve ever had the pleasure to hear I absolutely recommend you listen to this book The story is based upon actual events but then from there the novel evolves a story I m not sure that I liked or felt that the ending was what I would have expected from learning about the characters But there was wonderful character description and development I hi [...]

    11. Angela Kingston says:
      A compelling novel about a fascinating subject the mysterious disappearance of Lord Lucan Heather Rose had me from page one, I believed in every character and the way she draws the reader in so deftly and imperceptibly is truly masterful The closing chapters moved me to a constant stream of tears so many poignant observations about nature, people, relationships, living and dying I loved it.

    12. Annie says:
      Our reading group read this It was well received by all What a clever tactic to design a plot around an unresolved criminal event I really enjoyed the authors design of another possible scenario But as another reviewer has commented, how can the storyteller die I know you sometimes have to suspend reality but it still doesn t seem correct that the storyteller dies.

    13. Lauren says:
      A story set primarily on the mountain behind Hobart, Tasmania I read it while preparing for and during a trip there, and, after a bit of a tough time getting into the story, ended up connecting to it I d be interested in reading other works by Heather Rose.

      A rich, careless, selfish man who flees a disastrous night to create a better life with a woman who survived the worst of the Vietnamese war.Two images will haunt me The jar of honey a spoon and the first person final good bye.

    15. Lisa says:
      This was a very interesting read I did not know much of Lord Lucans story, apart from he supposedly killed the nanny and disappeared But once I got into the story I found it really readable.


    16. Sue Smith says:
      I thought this was a very original idea and well written I enjoyed the read and thought it was a great ending one that stayed with me.

    17. Danielle Wilson says:
      Easy reading I quite liked that it was set in Tasmania The relationship with Lili and Henry got me tearing up at the end And Charlie was an adorable little character.
