Isabel Hart is afraid of two things, the maze at Trencarrow where she got lost as a young child, and the lake where her brother David saved her from drowning in a boating accident. With her 21st birthday and the announcement of her engagement imminent, Isabel decides it is time for her to face her demons and ventures into the maze. There she sees something which will alter her perceptions of herself and her family forever. The house party gathers and as more secrets are revealed, Isabel doubts she has chosen the right man, although her future fiancé has more vested in this marriage than Isabel realizes and has no intention of letting her go easily. Will Isabel be able to put her preconceptions of marriage behind her and take charge of her own life, or is she destined to be controlled by others and a past she cannot break away from?

If you are anxious to spend your hard earned money on a dud ,.. then this is the book for you... while I’m sure the author hoped to seem serene and gentle in approach.. it merely resulted in an agony of hours that felt like a watching paint dry marathon...

Narration ruined this book for me!
What would have made Trencarrow Secret better?
The narrator turned me off of this book. I only made it through the first 5 chapters. If you enjoy fingernails scraping on a blackboard, then ignore my opinion.
I may go back and listen to the story a little at a time, because it was starting to get interesting. I may end up reading the book myself. I will update when I decide.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. One of my favorite books.
What didn’t you like about Ruth Golding’s performance?
When the protaganist's voice sounds like a 6 year old brat, (Isabel Hart is supposed to be almost 21) it is impossible to like her. She was cloying and insipid and I couldn't take her anymore.
What character would you cut from Trencarrow Secret?
I don't know, I didn't get far enough into the book to know. The Narrator for sure!
Any additional comments?
I'm sorry to be so blunt on this one, but I really couldn't listen anymore.
