Tender, heart-felt and beautifully narrated

A beautifully written novel with deep understanding of the characters involved and of human nature. The straddling of two eras was well executed. I truly enjoyed the narration which made the story come to life!

Would you listen to Iris and Ruby again? Why?

No, I wouldn't listen again. I found this book very long and it didn't go anywhere. I am struggling to finish the 2nd part.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Maybe I won't get there

What about Rula Lenska’s performance did you like?

I like Rula's reading but in this book I found it inconsistent. Ruby was part London Goth and part Toffee Tart

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Have yet to get there.

Any additional comments?

I like stories that take me away and this book put me to sleep.
