"Really enjoyable story"
This is an 'unturnable off' story with thoroughly believable characters. It's an unusual setting in a stained glass workshop where a window is being restored. There's an historical element too related through a diary about how the window was first commissioned and built. Also a strong musical element, the main character, Fran is a tuba player.
The narration is excellent with each voice being instantly recognizable for who it's meant to be.
Easy listening but well written and read. Highly recommended
Yet another good story from Rachel Hore. As usual, there is an interweaving of past and present with everything coming to a satisfactory, if somewhat expected, conclusion. Her historical information is spot on, and the description of Elgar`s "Dream of Gerontius" and the rehearsals, flows nicely. She`s obviously done her research!
However, Jilly Bond has to be THE most annoying narrator ever. Her voice is constantly full of emotion, yet her reading and interpretation of the characters is both emotion and passionless. In future, for me, Rachel Hore`s novels will have to be on the printed page unless narrated by someone else!!
"a little disapointing"
Loved the gathering storm , but this one did not quite hit the spot. It seemed to labour on a little and I lost interest.
The pace was a bit slow at the beginning but once the scene was set I couldn't stop listening. As usual the past and the present weave together to tell a brilliant story.
Nope, it just plods along

Predictable , slow story
It was a chore
I loved this book. The story was engaging. The characters were like friends along the way.
