I love a romance and throw in a bit of mystery too. Must have repartee and ongoing (sometimes witty) interaction between the characters to be most enjoyable.

    When Mrs. Dashwood is forced by an avaricious daughter-in-law to leave the family home in Sussex, she takes her three daughters to live in a modest cottage in Devon. For Elinor, the eldest daughter, the move means a painful separation from the man she loves, but her sister Marianne finds in Devon the romance and excitement which she longs for.

    Jo says: "Superb - Justice to Jane Austen and Emma Thompson"
    "A classic done with such style!"
    Overall

    Juliet Stevenson portrays the different characters beautifully and and the 'book' flows with the funny and gripping story. This portrayal of Jane Austen's first book gives the listener a respect and appreciation of her writing skill!

Her world is turned upside down when she learns the identity of her real father: Thomas Concannon. Respecting her late mother's wish, Shannon travels, however reluctantly, to County Clare. There, her loneliness and shame melt away in the embrace of the family she never knew existed.

    Astrid says: "Good book, Reader not so appealing"

    Story

    A wonderful story made real by the narrator's gorgeous Irish accent!
    This book is a worthy follow-up to the first two "Born In...." books.
    The characters come alive and the interplay between them is very entertaining with many a chuckle being the result.
