what a lovely story
A long, slow joirney..
I enjoyed the book, but would probably not listen to it again. There were too many stories within stories, which made it feel a little dragged out in places.
This could possibley have been done over two books, or maybe settle for less is more in terms of storyline twists.
Not sure that I particularly liked the narration style.
Julia was the stand out character, with the others revolving around her in some way.
A long haul for an audio book, but overall nice story.
