thoroughly great listen
Not what I expected but thoroughly enjoyed. Despite the sadness that this story evokes.. I could not put it down. I found it very easy to follow the characters on their journey and did not want the book to end.

Gripping from start to finish
A heartbreaking story written and narrated beautifully. I can't remember the last time I cried this much during a story or being moved to the point of shouting at my device, at a couple of points I had to stop listening, reluctant to hear what happens next.
I would absolutely recommend this story but would advise you to have a tissue handy.

Nothing complicated, just a good story, fictional characters but historical truth. Enjoyable listen and easy to follow story

A very well-researched book. A brilliant plot, well-drawn engaging characters.
It's a sobering thought that all the events in this story are taken from real life, and Diney spares us nothing in her unflinching descriptions.
The book could have been shorter without sacrificing the impact, and the characters more nuanced.
But I loved it!
Thank you Diney Costeloe for education and entertainment!

Anne Dover.... Simply Fabulous
Anne Dover is my favourite narrator by far, and this book was fantastic, great story line with the best narrator I have found. If you like this kind of book, give it a go, you won't be disappointed
