Written by Geoffrey Girard

Read by Henrietta Meire

When it comes to discovering a new read that will keep me hooked, I have always leaned toward the thriller, mystery and just an overall creepy book; so when I saw that Mary Rose is a mystery I thought to myself, “Sign me up.” This modern reworking of the classic ghost story written by J. M. Barrie kept me guessing and trying to figure out what exactly was going on, and it didn’t turn into a gory book which was a plus.

I really enjoyed how Geoffrey Girard painted a detailed picture by using descriptions that made you feel as though you were also exploring the island in the book right alongside the characters. Throughout the story, there were plenty of moments that kept the reader on the edge of their seat.

As for the ending, I am not really sure how I feel. I suppose the ending is definitely successful at one thing…It keeps you trying to figure out what actually happened. What was real? You continue to talk about the book after the story comes to an end.

Henrietta Meire was a great narrator choice for this book. I thought she did a wonderful job with the characters and keeping the readers enticed.
