    Life is not quite a fairytale for poor Viola. Left penniless, the young widow is forced to live with her late husband’s family in a joyless old house. There’s Mr Wither, a tyrannical old miser; Mrs Wither, who thinks Viola is just a common shop girl; and two unlovely sisters-in-law, one of whom is in love with the chauffeur. Only the prospect of the charity ball can raise Viola’s spirits especially as Victor Spring, the local prince charming, will be there.

    Millamant says: "Forgotten Classic"
    "Wonderful story, great narration"
    Overall

    "Nightingale Wood" is as fine a novel as "Cold Comfort Farm," with the same attention to character development, lyrical language, and engaging plot.
    Add to that mix Carole Boyd's attentive and spirited narration. She really is one of the better narrators that I have heard read an audiobook. Her rich, cadenced voice complements Gibbons' prose perfectly.
    I listen to audiobooks as I take my dog for a daily walk, and when I downloaded "Nightingale Wood" we had to extend the length and frequency of our walks. Dog and owner are both very pleased.
