Roar by Nicole Trope

Audio Short Story
Roar by Nicole Trope is a short story that I was able to download for FREE from Audible. Roar is narrated by Susan Strafford. Listening time for Roar by Nicole Trope is 31 minutes.

Below is my honest, unbiased review of Roar by Nicole Trope.

First off, I enjoyed listening to Susan Strafford narrate Roar as she has a lovely voice.

Roar by Nicole Trope deals with domestic abuse and a mother who only wants to protect her baby from her abusive husband. Roar is well written and worth a read.

The following is a plot summary for Roar by Nicole Trope from Audible:
A short story for fans of Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve. Step into the fragile domestic world of Roar and discover the unforgettable voice of Nicole Trope, best-selling author of The Secrets in Silence, Three Hours Late and The Boy Under the Table.
The baby sleeps peacefully, filled with milk and contentment. The man on the bed breathes his way into the darkness, filled with rage. Was there ever really a choice?
From the queen of searing family drama and suspense comes a short story about the fierce bonds between mother and child, the things we sacrifice to protect the ones we love and the desperate choices we make when there's nowhere left to run.
I am giving Roar by Nicole Trope a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. I must give short stories another go - I usually find them unsatisfying. Cheers from Carole's chatter

    1. I've been delving more into short stories this year. I find them to be great ways to discover new to me authors without making a big commitment.

      I also find that short stories and even novellas can be hit or miss in my opinion. I guess it all comes down to how good the writer is a executing short stories.
