Publisher's Summary

It is 1951 and a remote mining village on the North Staffordshire Moors is hit by one of the worst snowstorms in living memory. Cut off for over three weeks, the old and the sick will die; the strongest bunker down; and those with evil intent will bring to its conclusion a family vendetta spanning three generations.

Inspired by a true event, The Soprano tells the story of Grace Holland - a strikingly beautiful, much admired local celebrity who brings glamour and inspiration to the grimy moorland community. But why is Grace still here? Why doesn't she leave this staunchly Methodist, rain-sodden place and the isolated farmhouse she shares with her mother?

Riddled with witchcraft and tales of superstition, the story is mostly narrated by the Whistler family who own the local funeral parlour, in particular six year old Louise - now an elderly lady - who recalls one of the most shocking crimes imaginable.

Poor quality narration spoils this story.

Yet another infuriating mis-pronunciation of what I consider to be basic vocabulary (‘herth’ for hearth, ‘happeny’ instead of ha’penny, tartare/ tartar etc.) prompts me to write this review when I am only two thirds of the way through this audible book. (Does anybody ‘proof-listen’ to these recordings)? The pace of the narration is also far too quick in some sections thereby eradicating any attempts at atmosphere/tension generated by the text and the character’s voices are on occasions quite laughable, if they weren't so irritating!! Why can’t the right accent be used and all of the time? Surely it’s not that difficult?
