Publisher's Summary

It is 1931, and once again Europe is heading towards disaster. Life must go on however, and a new generation of the Neyler family are making their way in this turbulent world. Louis Rose, the self-confessed black sheep of the family, returns to England for his father's funeral and is greeted with more bad news: he has lost his mistress to his young nephew.

Louis' son Simon, meanwhile, has matured and is embarking on his first love affair. Valentine Neyler, Simon's cousin, visits Berlin for the Olympics, but finds herself experiencing first-hand the prejudice which is gripping Germany. Before she knows it she is caught up in the tragedy of a Jewish family struggling to escape the Nazi horror.

What a waste of 3 credits

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who cannot remember the story - so disappointing as each book i.e. The Pride, The Glory and The Splendour is mostly a repeat of the previous book!

What was most disappointing about Katie Flynn’s story?

Repetition of previous books in the Series.

What three words best describe Anne Dover’s voice?

Pleasant, easy to listen to.
Anne as the narrator "sold" the series to me
What a shame she had to narrate such a repetitive series

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed that I had wasted 3 credits, annoyance that the time wasted listening to the series of 3 in the hope that they would improve!

Any additional comments?

The first 2 books Audible have refunded the credits.
But not the third which I gave up on after a couple of hours listening.
Why is this?
