rainy day listen
No, the plot was rather plodding; but interesting none the less.
One word will suffice: Mediocre
No, it would be too tedious for one sitting. Okay to keep you company on a short car trip, or on a walk.
The story was really pretty interesting, if heavy handed. Poor Polly Lee though, seriously, all Americans do not sound as if they have dead pan nasal voices. Her treatment of a Tidewater Southern accent was dreadful! It was more Okie or Arkansas than the soft, lilting Southern accent of Virginia. The story would have been much better read by Katherine Kellgrin. (sp?)
The story makes you care about the charactors. You become part of the household and share in their experience.
The way it takes you along with it. It unfolds before your eyes and you live it. Feel it.
I have never heard Justine Eyre before. She is adaquate, but not my favorite. There were times when I thought her "take" on how the charactors would speak was weak. But as I say, she is fine and in no way takes away from the very good stroy line.
It broke my heart at times. There were moments it made me smile and long for a simpler time.
If you like stories about England and English country houses, stories about the war years in Great Britan, or about the courage of people in trying times, you will enjoy this book. I did.
