    Taking us from the cliff-lined shores of England to Paris, Munich, and the trenches of the Somme, The Children's Book is a deeply affecting story of a singular family, played out against the great, rippling tides of the day. It is a masterly literary achievement by one of our most essential writers.

    Sara says: "A wandering story that goes on forever."
    "Disapointing"

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Too many characters introduced too fast, hard to keep track of. Poor character development due to their sheer number. Too many detailed meaningless descriptions of who was wearing what. Could barely get through Book 1, lost interest. I love listening to Rosalyn Landor , but even she cannot breathe life into boredom and dullness.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sorry about wasting my credits on this.

    Where does The Apothecary's Daughter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great book; author masterfully described the inner workings of the human soul. I cried few times while listening - characters seem to be so real, their emotional pain so intimately familiar, so genuine. This story re-invigorates faith in devotion of a true friendship, commitment and love. I disagree with others that note this book is intended for Christian audiences. I am not a Christian, but this story touched my heart.
