beautifully written as you would expect from Melvyn Bragg. Mark McGann is a brilliant narrator and manages to be equally convincing as an elderly genteel french woman and a working class cumbrian man. The only reason that I have not given this five stars is the subject matter, there is a vein of depression running through the story that dragged me down a little. Had I realised the nature of the story, I would probably looked for another title.
Far too long a story although Mark McGann reads it beautifully. I got lost in the over elaborate descriptive writing Bragg employs.
