My library had alot of Cookson audiobooks back in the day when I started driving long distances and used that time to listen to books I didn't have time to read. I found Cookson's books enjoyable listening because they were usually well narrated, set in England's past which I find interesting and had interesting characters. Nothing too hard on the grey matter so perfect for passing time on the road. When I joined Audible, I hoped it would have most of her books, but it only has two and these are not her best. The Blind Miller is well read, and an o.k. listen, but I wish Audible would post her more well known novels and series.
"Excellent story!!! Excellent storyteller!!!"
Catherine Cookson at her best. No-one can tell a story like her. Her main characters are always strong women standing alone in an era where 'MEN RULED' but never in her books!
How the story evolved keeping you wanting more. The strength of mind in thick and thin of the main character Sarah.
Yes I have and this one is one of her best. She brought the book to life! She is an excellent actress who, has a Geordie, is made to narrate Catherine Cookson's books.
A Magical Storyteller who never disappoints!
I wish more of Catherine Cookson's books were made in to listening ones. There are many people who love her books, and for one reason or another, cannot physically 'read' them and would be happy to 'read' them again. I also think there are a couple of generations who introduced to her books would quickly become addicts! So please would it be possible to bring more of her stories to Audible!
Brilliant bedtime read. Well, possibly not bedtime as I did, as I ended up having to read a bit more, then a bit more, and finally putting it down when I couldnt keep my eyes open any longer at two o'clock in the morning!
"Another Addictive Catherine Cookson"
This is probably one of my favourites & Sarah, one of my favourite characters. The story is just as dramatic as other Cookson stories, but seems more believable. Susan Jameson is a fantastic narrator. I cannot imagine anyone else reading Catherine Cookson.
Lovely book , this is my favourite author.
She never fails to deliver. Thank you
This book was wonderful great story line I myself am from the north east Sarah was such a loverly character almost felt as if I knew her I hope that others who listen to this book will enjoy it as much as I have done
Brilliant book loved it, the story was well read a real treat to listen to looking forward to the next book.
"Really kept me guessing"
Love hate jealously
Very good...made it come to life
Family life tangled web
Made me cry.... Brilliant read
"Not one of her best!"
Not really, it was not Catherine Cookson at her best. I listened to it all the way through but didn't really enjoy it
I found her voice a bit grating at times and most of the men sounded slightly mad! They had an accent all of their own. I couldn't warm to any of the characters
