Summary

“Jane Hathaway and her niece, Ruth Thorne, have never met. Jane invites Ruth for a visit, but leaves before Ruth comes. Ruth agrees to come to Jane for quiet and rest. When Ruth arrives, the maid gives her a letter from her aunt. In the letter, Aunt Jane does not tell Ruth anything about her trip abroad but insists that Ruth light an oil lamp in the attic each night. Very soon, the all together forgotten past and the steady present are united.”

Reviews

Listening to chapter 6 and have to quit. The reader speaks too fast and with minimal expression. There is no time to absorb the characters or what is happening. I am sorry to complain since she is a volunteer, but I cannot enjoy the author's story.
