A wonderful story about a woman who became a Norland Nanny at age 18 .She spent her entire life taking care of other peoples children. The book takes us through the exciting days of WW2 and continues to her retirement. She is now 93 years old. An Inspiring true story. The Narrator was perfect.Just the right British accent ! She was easy to understand. We used this book for my book group and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Highly recommend it. I hope audible will offer the second book by this author called "Tuppence for paper and String"
I Just finished this thoughtful and riveting story of forgiveness .It is about a Bitter middle aged English Professor who is visited by her brothers daughter ... a homeless runaway named Carmen . She is a delight.This is a multi-layered story of family disfunction ,grudges and wrong choices.
Deeply analytical it comes to a wonderful climax of right choices and redemption.If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would.
The Narrator was perfect . I love Jamie Langston Turner .Her books are always well developed with wonderful characters . Try "Some Wildflower in My Heart" which is another amazingly well written story.
Marcia Willett writes a consistently good story and The Sea Garden no exception.. Her character development and wonderful story carry you along with her into a delightful spot in rural England .Her descriptions of the countryside make you fell as if you are there.
I will be looking forward to MORE of Marcia Willet in the future.
I had hopes for this story but it was a flop . Would hesitate to get another book buy this author. Try Marcia Willett Rachel Hore or Kate Morton instead.
This book was a delightful surprise. A well written complex mystery with perfect narration.
I was not familiar with this author and decided to take a chance. The book does not depend on salacious material ,graphic violence or crude dialogue to keep you interested . I will definitely buy some more of the "Miss Silver" mysteries.
I love the Miss Julia books and had hopes for this one too. It was very disappointing! The story was a departure from the usual funny stories and likeable characters I am used too . The story was tacky, there,were too many sexual references and crude language . I HATED the descriptions of the party and the unfunny behavior of the women after too much drink. I hope Ms Ross returns to her original template for Miss Julia and her friends in her next book.
Great read! Daniel Silva does such a great job with character development and a completely up to date plot that it could have jumped off the front page of the New York Times.
Gabriel Alon is my favorite Hero! George Guidall is the Best! His narration makes you fell like you are right there and know every character. His diction is perfect. I hated for it to end. Eagerly Looking forward to my next Silva novel.
Not a winner! I did not like this book.It was too grim and had too many descriptions of food
preparation which did NOT make my mouth water! Did not like either of the main women characters.Absolutely HATED the narration.Her male voices are cloying.
Got through chapter 10 but have no desire to finish it. Very Disappointed. Hope Winspear
sticks to Maisie Dobbs in the future.
This book is written somewhat in the style of the 44 Scotland Street Stories. It consists of 4 different stories told in chapters each going back and forth between four passengers riding together on a train.. Each story very different but with a central theme, Love. Likeable characters made the stories they shared very entertaining.
I have never read anything by this author and was pleasantly surprised. I liked her style and loved the setting in the Bluebird book store.I Have recommended it to my book group
as the selection for August.. I was fascinated by the friendship between the owner of the store and the famous Children's book author Margaret Wise Brown. Through letters we got to know them well.
Did not really like the voice of the narrator She sounded too old and did not do multiple voices well. I Wish she had a softer voice, she sounded too loud and raspy.
But I liked the story so I tried to get used to the voice.
Will look for another by Sarah Jio but hope to see another narrator.
I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent book. It is so refreshing to find a modern author that does not have to rely on bad language, violence, or steamy sex scenes to carry the story along.
The plot concerns a young woman who finds a box of old love letters when she is renovating an old house .Intrigued by the letters she sets out to find the author,a WW2 veteran living in a nearby town with his devoted handsome grandson .The book is full of likable characters and believable situations all set in a delightful beach town in Florida.
The narration was first rate and I will certainly look for more books by this author.
Thanks Audible for making this available.
