"A very satisfying collection." (Daily Telegraph)
"Huth has an eye for perfect short-story material....a full technicolor storyteller who clearly enjoys herself." (Spectator)
Angela Huth is a master storyteller. These stories had me completely entranced right to the very end. The narrator has a light, pleasant and pleasing style. Fully recommended.

Would you try another book from Angela Huth and/or Joanna David?
What was most disappointing about Angela Huth’s story?
Ich fand das Buch langweilig und habe es auch nicht zu Ende gehört. Bin einfach nicht in die Geschichte reingekommen.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
1) I cannot find a list of which stories are included in this book, and it is not possible to find the start of each story (to check the titles) because it does not always correspond to a new chapter. It means that when I come to another Huth story collection I won't know which I have read and which I haven't.
2) All that happens when one story finishes and another begins is that there is a pause (about as long as for a change of paragraph) and the narrator quietly says the title of the next story, in a voice that is just like the general narration. It is very easily missed!
I spent the second story wondering when we were going to tie back to the characters we had already met, then when the second story finished (which I almost missed as well) I realised that they had been two different stories. Very frustrating.
Please, Audible, one story per chapter/one chapter per story would surely make sense? And a list of all the stories included should be basic requirement too.
Having said that, all the stories are good, some are very good. They have a dream-like quality which draws the reader in quickly, as short stories need to do.
