Gardens English and Italian

What made the experience of listening to Gardens of Delight the most enjoyable?

Interesting variety of characters.

What did you like best about this story?

Good descriptions of a trip to the lake district of Italy.

What does Jilly Bond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her Italian accents are excellent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it was slow in places and I took longer than usual to finish it.

Any additional comments?

I wasn't sure I would like this as it started rather slowly with some unlikeable characters. Also the ending was not exactly what I expected. I enjoyed the development of the story, especially once the scene shifted to Italy.

An enjoyment

Enjoyed the little twists in her life. It was a light happy read. I don't want to give away any of the details, but I can say it was nice to see friendships of all ages mixed.
