An excellent reading of a difficult book
This book has several stories and multiple themes being developed simultaneously, yet Wanda McCaddon reads it so well that all is clear and one is compelled to keep listening. I hope Audible will increase its catalogue of books like this.

A great story
I always find Penelope Lively's books are slow to start while she builds out the characters and their backgrounds. But once they start coming together, the story takes off and becomes a really great read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the narrator did a good job too.
