The series is excellent. If you are a fan of social history (post WWI England, women's history, Depression Era) in a fictional setting, Winspears books are very well researched, without being teachy or preachy. The reader has a pleasant manner, with voices well differentiated.
Love all the Leo Waterman books - would like to see them all on audio. Reader is good but the mispronunciation of Washington State place names and even ordinary words is a bit jarring....expect that will be corrected in the next books?
Would love to see all the Magoody series on audio books. However, this reader seems to slow the pace of the book and the voices are 'off' - and they sound so much alike generally, that it is difficult at times to know who is speaking. If you sit and listen, the reader is probably fine, but if you are doing something else that at times requires your attention, the similar voices makes it difficult to follow along. Still worthwhile, though, as Joan Hess is very funny.
