I was glad when this was over as Jacqueline Tong really got on my nerves.
Jacqueline has a very polite voice which was easy enough to listen to but mixed with her attempt at Irish accents it was dreadful. They were a mixture of Dublin, Belfast and Welsh. Sometimes all in the same sentence! At times I didn't know which character was talking and I found it very off putting. This would have been better narrated by an Irish person as it would have added more feeling to the book.
Overall it was a an enjoyable storyline but not one of my favourite Cathy Kelly books.
What a shame the narrator read this so poorly, with Irish accents from varying parts of both Ireland, Scotland and goodness knows where else. It actually really spoiled a very well written book and made it quite difficult to follow as the narrator didn't always keep the same voice or accent for her characters.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The character accents totally ruined this book for me... It's a typical fake midlands accent.. no one in Ireland speaks like this....
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I don't think I'll be able to suffer the book to the end.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jacqueline Tong?
Aoife MacMahon, Caroline Lennon, Niamh Cusack...
