How can you not love this book

Well written as always and well researched heart-warming stories with happy endings rags to riches with enough hesitation in there to make it interesting. I love the fact she uses similar settings and refers to things in other books whilst changing the direction of the story and the characters within.

Good narration with no squeaky characters in there and good intonation.

Looking forward to choosing my next easy read! Thank you Rosie!

Wonderful story!

I loved this book, as I do all of Rosie Goodwin’s stories. I looked forward to what would be my next opportunity to listen. I’m sorry to say that the one downside was the way in which the narrator seemed to stress words in the wrong places and accentuate punctuation - one thing I found quite irritating but thankfully, the story itself was strong enough to outweigh that.

Great story but not a great listen

The story was very well written and I enjoyed it a lot but it was read very poorly by someone who had very little understanding of punctuation and when to pause appropriately. Her tone was constant and really spoilt my enjoyment.

Wonderful story, awful narrator

The story was so wonderful I couldn’t stop listening despite having to stop several times due to the bad narrator. She has a horrible whiney voice with a really annoying hiss at the end of her sentences. Almost ruined the book for me! Not sure if I’ll try any other Rosie Goodwin books as unfortunately they all have the same terrible narrator, which is a real shame as I bet they are fab!
