Would you try another book from Charlotte Bingham and/or Judy Bennett Simon?
What a disspointment - I have become a hardened Charlotte Bingham fan until this book. I loved the story in the beginning but then quickly became bored. It just went on & on with nothing happening very quickly ant too much detail.
Judy Bennett Simon read it brilliantly but I gave up after only an hour into the second half of the book!
Would you ever listen to anything by Charlotte Bingham again?
What does Judy Bennett Simon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She brings all the characters alive
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappoinment and sadness for wasting the time trying to enjoy it.
Any additional comments?
Not much else to say
A fabulous portrayal of the Edwardian era made so much more interesting by the narrator Judy Bennett, who brought every character to life. I have listened to this book so many times and never tire of it.

The reader has a lovely speaking voice and reads very well, but the story, unfortunately, drags a bit in places. I just wish that the author would leave out much of the background behind most of the individual stories and just get on with the actual season for the young ladies instead. Would've been better to have been abridged in this case
