"Loved EVERY Minute"
I just adored this book. It is lengthy and a real saga but I was totally hooked from the start. It is superbly narrated and the pace is excellent. The characters were convincing and well defined and the story, though complex, was thought provoking and convincing without seeming contrived or leaving loose ends. I was in another world whilst listening to this. Totally absorbing.

"This author's book writing skills just get better & better"
The story was indeed extremely well written. Each time I put the book down I always wanted to get back to it as soon as I could. The themes in the story all linked together so well. Heart breaking yet resplendent too. Very "real", totally imaginable. Narrator did the book much justice. Excellent read.
i did quite like the cliched skeletons in the closet, although it did become very predictable
no it was just a fiction book that was pleasant to listen to
nothing, jilly bond is fab
"boring a up class soap opera"
I was more that half of the book and still not got to what the story was about and was fed up with it
the narrator was ok its the story was not
Great story of the life of a young girl to old age including narrative on 2nd world war. A good saga.
