For some reason I just got plain tired of the story lines. They simply didn't hold my interest and I never finished this book. I am a huge fan of the genre; so it wasn't that. It just kind of fizzled for me.
I really enjoyed this story of 3 strong women from totally different backgrounds coming together to help win the war. Well written and seemed to be 3 stories in one. Thoroughly recommend.
I must say I loved both this book and "the house of flowers" by Charlotte Bingham. They were books I did not want to finish reading. Kim Hicks narratation also is wonderful. A thoroughly enjoyable read and I learnt a few facts about life pre world war 2.
I thought this audio book was very enjoyable. The characters were very well fleshed out. I felt I really knew who they were before the "event" of the story took place. A great way to spend a couple of rainy afternoons!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Not only was the length perfect for my road trip, but the plot was very interesting and I immediately identified with the female characters in the book. I thought the reader was an amazing orator with an impressive variety of dialects and a versatile voice. The plot kind of starts off slow, but I would encourage the reader to keep with it. Things seemed to get interesting about an hour into the book. The book itself does have a fairly fragmented ending, but I felt satisfied with where the characters had gone from the beginning to the end, despite this small shortcoming. If you enjoy history, and wish for the less often accounted female point of view, this book is for you.
