    Story
    "Good Read"

    I like Annie Sanders and I've listened to most of her books on Audible. I thought this story was pretty good but predictable. It was a nice easy listen with no big surprises. A seemingly honest depiction about family relationships and the complications of marriage. Nothing painful here but not too deep either. I am not sorry I listened.

    "Lovely"

    I found this to be a really lovely tale, it was beautiful. It was beautifully written and I had to know what happend. If you like a sweet, almost sad story witha happy ending, then this is for you.

    Story
    "Good"

    I enjoyed this story for the most part. The main character was frustrating at times. For a smart woman It took her much to long to realize what her responsabilities were. The story was good other wise.

    Story
    "Well worth a listen"
    What did you like most about Instructions for Bringing Up Scarlett?

    The authors introduce us to rounded, normal characters, all set carefully and accurately within different time frames, and show us how they respond to and try to cope with what life throws at them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories in both past and present developing side by side.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When Virginia and Piers have a row with Piers' parents - anyone with in laws can relate to that!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I listened to much of it on several long car journeys and was keen to return to it each time.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book because I have enjoyed the other books these authors have written. I was a bit wary as I thought it might be a bit sentimental or mawkish, but it wasn't. Difficult issues were handled with sensitivity and realism eg Scarlett's anxieties before starting at secondary school and her desire to fit in. It was easy to relate to the characters and the twists and turns of the plot kept me entranced.
