Publisher's Summary

The Jacobs family has lived at Orley Court for generations. But when Vanessa Jacobs is widowed and left to manage the property, she finds costs spiralling out of control. In order to stay in their beloved home, she and her daughters will have to sell part of it off - a decision that drives a wedge between Vanessa and her mother-in-law.
The new owners of the north wing are Laurence Sturridge and his father, Marcus. Both of them long for an escape: Laurence from the monotony of his City career; Marcus from the grief of losing his wife. Could the beauty of Orley Court offer them a fresh outlook on life?
As the two families embark on a challenging new chapter over the course of a glorious English summer, secrets are revealed and relationships tested. But as Orley Court begins to weave its magic over them, will it be love, above all, that brings the two families together?

Possibly the worst narrator!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I've literarily listen to hundreds of Audible books but I have to say this is the worst narrator ever. That's why I could not recommend this book to a friend, although the story is OK.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The worst intonation ever, not as bad when as the voices of a characters, but otherwise really nerve grating.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

probably not

Lovely, heart-warming story

This is a heart-warming story of loss, broken and restored relationships, and finding love again.
Wonderfully done, the descriptions of the gardens and the English countryside made me feel as if I were there.

Lovely, endearing characters. The stories of each one unfold and blend together seamlessly.

I listened to the audio version of this story and narrator, Susan Duerden, did a fantastic job.
I would definitely read more by this author.

Narration ruined a good story

Any additional comments?

The story was lovely but totally ruined by the narration. I was going to give up on it at the beginning but I did persevere and enjoyed the story itself. I've learnt that I was always listen to a sample before purchasing from now on.

A reasonable story line

Would you try another book written by Victoria Connelly or narrated by Susan Duerden?

Yes to Victoria Connelly but no to read by Susan Duerdon who has a very irritating voice which is monotonous and gives no variation

Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Duerden’s performances?

No - I do not like the way her voice goes up and down at the end of every sentence.

Do you think Love in an English Garden needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It would be nice to know how the characters develop.

A good book for a 16 year old

What disappointed you about Love in an English Garden?

Absolutely the wrong type of book for my taste. A weak story line, romantic love that would perhaps appeal to a teenager

Has Love in an English Garden put you off other books in this genre?

Probably

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Duerden?

Don't know

What character would you cut from Love in an English Garden?

Can't say the entire plot was just so implausible and ridiculously structured to be believable
