    "Another winner from Maureen Lee"

    I always enjoy books by Maureen Lee and this one is no exception, the characters are well drawn and always interesting from beginning to end. I would recommend this audio book to anyone who enjoys a good family story The reader, Maggie Ollerenshaw is excellent.
