As the worst storm of the century breaks across the Northwest, sweeping through Snowdonia and across the Mersey to burst upon Liverpool, two women, Molly and Ellen, give birth to girls in a Liverpool maternity hospital. Molly lives on a hill farm in Snowdonia while Ellen is married to Sam O'Mara, a dock worker who is quicker with a punch than a kiss. After one punch too many, Ellen throws her husband out and eventually leaves Liverpool to live with Molly. Ellen and her daughter throw themselves into their new life with enthusiasm, unaware that they are being watched by someone hiding in a ruined cottage. And as another horrendous storm breaks across the hills, the watcher makes his move.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I listen to it when I have run out of the current story I am listening too. It helps on the long drive home that is about all.
Would you ever listen to anything by Katie Flynn again?
Yes I have listened to her before and enjoyed but this story is boring and slow
How did the narrator detract from the book?
What character would you cut from A Sixpenny Christmas?
all of them!!!
This book droned on & on & on . . . I kept thinking something was going to liven it up a little, but no luck. The narrator drove me mad with her 'welsh accent' & although I understand she was trying to 'act the part', it was awful.
I would not recommend this to anyone.....

I didnt hate this book but I didnt like it much either. I got fed up with the strong welsh and scouse accents by the narrator and sadly gave up 3/4 of the way through. There were some good bits in the book but not enough to hold my attention.
