I would have liked more emphasis of the history ( England's struggles to assimilate the changes following WWI ). The romance was sweet but unrealistic, and the "happy ending" was rushed and too easy. Excellent narration, though.

Would you try another book from Jennifer Robson and/or Lucy Rayner?
Not necessary to have read Somewhere in France to appreciate this "sequel"--devoted to a different (though connected) heroine. Despite referencing Pride & Prejudice at a key interchange in the novel, Robson is both too predictable, and too unrealistic, to pull off the requisite "happy" ending.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
While some of the heroine's flatmates might well be annoying dimwits, Rayner's ability to capture their annoyingness did nothing to enhance the enjoyability of listening to those scenes.
Any additional comments?
One of the characters at one point calls the heroine a "self-righteous prig." While she at least has the decency to question herself about the comment, she fails to rise above the charge.
