Very weak story & boring narration

As a fan of Fern Britton, I had high hopes for this book but really struggled to finish this. Such a predictable, weak story with very little substance. Not sure if the style of her narration made it this boring. I normally love listening to Fern Britton talking but imo, her narration of this book was almost childlike. Will not be buying another of her books.

What a lot of unnecessary waffle!

SPOILER ALERT!!!
Disappointed! I stuck with it but it was not worth it. Quite a dull story padded out with lots of unnecessary chit chat type waffle.
And where did Amy suddenly vanish to, unless I nodded off and missed something?
Why don’t we find out how Clara comes to marry Bertie’s brother? We never go back to Clara’s arrival to Cornwall!
I don’t think I will bother with another Fern Britton novel now as I can’t trust her to fully furnish a story and to finish it properly sorry.

Excellent story

My first Fern Britton book - I thoroughly enjoyed the story, which I found really gripping. It was good getting to know all the characters. I believe that it was even more effective as Fern read it herself, knowing the story and the characters well!
