Do you like to listen to audiobooks?  Do you like audiobook originals?  I do as they provide a great audio experience with different narrators, sound effects, music, etc.  One of Our Own by Lucinda Berry is an audiobook original from Simon & Schuster.

In this thriller, Felicia who beyond her regular duties as a single mother and a lawyer, volunteers at a suicide help line.  One day she talks with a girl who has been raped and she realizes it happened at a party that her son had attended.  Will she be able to help out this girl and did her son know anything about it?

My thoughts:

·       I don’t want to give away too much of the plot so this review will be brief.

·       This was a nice short read for when you are looking for a quick audiobook.

·       It had a great audiobook production with wonderful voice actors and sound effects.

·       Trigger alert:  Rape and abuse.

·       This book was set in Wisconsin, and I enjoy when books are set locally.

·       Author Lucinda Berry is a former clinical psychologist and leading researcher in childhood trauma.  She uses her knowledge and experience to craft a moving psychological thriller.

·       I did predict the ending of this one, but I enjoyed reading about Felicia’s journey.  She was an interesting character that had to work through moral dilemmas.

Overall, One of our Own is a riveting thriller and audiobook production.
