Fantastic story and narrator! by Steve Blizin on 1 December 2016
Sherri Turner accomplishes in a few pages what entire books often attempt but rarely deliver. She delivers a chill that reverberates up the spine and resonates within your psyche. Tavia Gilbert’s telling of the tale is outstanding. She becomes these words and propels the listener on the journey itself. Outstanding!

Captivating throughout by Joanna Campbell on 15 November 2016
I was spellbound by this story and felt as if I were sitting on the bus too. It was beautifully written and read, particularly the sense of growing tension, which was so effectively execute. The clever twist worked brilliantly well and was delicately foreshadowed while still emerging as a surprise.
