A really good story.Very nice to listen to-fine acting.

An adolescent's "imaginary" friend fights for survival by attacking her new "real" friends.

A wealthy family living a reclusive life in a remote area have only two servants to tend the house and the grounds. Their daughter was home-schooled and to ward off the loneliness has invented an imaginary friend. After her mother dies, her father hires a governess / companion for her hoping that this new relationship will enrich her life such that her imaginary friend is no longer needed, especially as she is 15 years old.

How dare she dump Gareld!!!!!!

Just kicking back and listening the this gem. The daughter's name is Halycon. Time to cash a bowl! With Gerald!

The people all had such lovely voices in this episode. It made listening a pleasure. The story was haunting and wistful, with a touch of panic at times.

A pretty good story - was it a drama or a supernatural story, or a combination of both? I have my thoughts on it, especially since Elspeth Eric wrote it. It's a nice listen.

I like Child of Fate very much.
