Engrossing, complicated story

I don't know what those wishy washy reviews are about. This book was totally absorbing. It's rather long so I found myself alternating between being very productive and sitting motionless waiting to see what was going to happen next. You've read the description and the plot does revolve around several characters' ways of dealing with grief. It's also about self discovery. The reading performance is wonderful. I especially like the children's voices. Erica James - a no brainier with book selection. I haven't read all but generally she delivers!

Harriet was a strong independent woman.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I liked the storyline and the main character, that's what got me stuck into the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Love and Devotion?

The honesty of the children and their comments and impressions were priceless.

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

I love the accent and she also has fantastic delivery in reading her characters.

Who was the most memorable character of Love and Devotion and why?

Harriet, as I said, a strong independent woman who took on her responsibilities inspite of the personal cost.
