Would you try another book from Cathy Kelly and/or Amy Creighton?
I always enjoy a Cathy Kelly novel. Reliably enjoyable and the story always finishes happily ever after.
Any additional comments?
I nearly stopped listening about 2 hours in , the Australian accent was so so bad. Something crossed between Cornish and I don't know what bla!
I love Cathy Kelly`s books and Amy Creighton is a fabulous narrator who get the accents and intonation so right.
This is a sensitive plot and I enjoyed its poignancy a soft gentle story with sensitive issues so skilfully written

at the beginning I thought this was going to be a really good story but was disappointed. I gave up after chapter four.

Wonderfully narrated and as always an intertwined story. I found myself hoping for traffic lights to turn red to hear the end of each chapter.
