Too much backstory

Too much backstory! I am all for back stories, but to be three hours into the book and be introduced to yet another character and another extensive backstory is too much for me I'm going to return this book! The heart of the book may be wonderful but I'm too confused by all the characters and all the extensive back stories -three hours of back stories is 2 1/2 hours too much for me!

Interesting account

I quite enjoyed this listen but I found it to be more like a documentary than a story. It was an interesting account of the ladies stories of their time as shopgirls at Hayworth's. As a big fan of the TV series Mr. Selfridge I'd hoped it would be a fast paced story like that but it's a much tamer version. I also found there was a lot of repetition which was irritating in an audio book because I kept thinking I'd accidentally skipped back to a previous chapter. Other than that I did think it was nice to hear snippets of these women's lives.
