This was the best in the Maisie Dobbs series, by far.
Orlagh Cassidy is a pleasure to listen to. Can’t wait for the next in the series.

This is a lovely story of war, courage and heartbreak. At first I thought it would be another angry feminist tome but it wasn't. The women portrayed were strong and capable but, as we all are, subject to the time and circumstance of their birth.
The narrator was great. I've listened to her reading the Maisey Dobbs series and this was a factor in my picking this particular book.
Lastly, this book is another window into WW1 and the great human tragedy that it was.

This is a beautiful story. It is set in the channel island of Guernsey and the story revolves around the aftermath of the Nazi occupation of the island during World War II.
Listening to the different accents of the narrators is delightful. You feel like you are on the island getting to know the people there. I want to visit Guernsey.
Oh, and one more thing: I love a happy ending.

Once again, listening to a story by Richard Peck is pure pleasure. His characters are so real, you just love them. There is something special about the way he can give you a sense of place and time. Indiana in the early 1900s, dirt roads, early autos, old farm houses, townspeople who were quirky and real, all these brought this story to life. If you read this, Richard Peck, please accept my thanks.

I loved listening to this story. It is not only a tale of the sadness of war and cruelty but also of the deep, searing kind of caring people can realize in each other in desperate times.
I have already recommended this to my two closest reader friends.

The narrator was good but the story was tedious and sentimental. I thought it would never end.
