Great slice of life from WWII Britain. Vivid characters. Good people doing their best in awful circumstances. Great narration style.
I love books written about WWII as well as a setting in England. I enjoyed the reader and her various characters--good job! This book recalls history and life for civilians in WWII, but also talks about the sacrifices many gave during this time. But most of all, it is simply a lovely romance.
Charles Reed although I did think she did a great job with Sarah, too.
love to read and love audio books!Favorite authors: Marcia Willett,Nevil Shute,Mary Stewart,and Jacqueline Winspear. I could go on and on but wont bore you! I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.
This is a good back story to the book "Sarah" Cottage. I liked the story but the narrator was annoying especially when she did the children's voices. I would not look for another book by this person. Because I Love DE Stevenson I put up with the inferior narration.
