Possibly recommend to an unsophisticated teenage girl. The main character has a challenging childhood dealing with death, loss and loneliness in her life.
Great Welsh accents. She was brilliant.
I was surprised (spoiler alert!) that the main mother characters in the story are pretty dastardly, uncaring or just plain mean and nasty. The father figures, on the other hand, are caring, loving, at worst benign. By putting what might be considered more typical male behavior (desertion, violence) into the mother figures makes the story uncomfortable, and for me, a little unbelievable. Still I listened to the end. The mystery of the plot was well paced and had a satisfying conclusion.
