One of my favorite book - now in audio!
Yes. I've read this book many times and the audio is a great enhancement.
The scene in Kew Gardens, where the family deal with grief by enjoying the beauty of the lapageria vine.
Where Rose and her mother visit Constance and Rosamund for the first time, with exciting results.
This book has so much depth - it's wonderful in its details about music and education; it's a great family story; everything I say is only one facet of the plot. Well worth reading and listening to!
