    "Not Faulks' best"

    Having listened to both "Birdsong" and "Charlotte Grey" and being truly impressed and entertained by every aspect of both stories, I was frankly disappointed in the 3rd book of the trilogy and am still trying to work out any connection between this rather dull story of an orphaned waitress in a small French provincial town who falls prey to the lust of the local bourgeoisie and Faulks' other two more remarkable offerings.
    James Wilby's rendition was, however, excellent although I was a little confused at first by the English west country accent applied to French country folk and the chef de cuisine with a Yorkshire accent.
