Publisher's Summary

West Cork, Ireland, 1900. The year marks the start of a new century and the birth of three very different women: Kitty Deverill, the flame-haired Anglo-Irish daughter of the castle; Bridie Doyle, the daughter of the Irish cook; and Celia Deverill, Kitty's flamboyant English cousin. Together they grow up on the dreamy grounds of the family's grand estate, Castle Deverill. Yet their peaceful way of life will soon be threatened by Ireland's struggle for independence.

Fabulous

Would you listen to Songs of Love and War again? Why?

Yes - still do. The characters are so believable and the story line intrigueing.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kitty - she was the main character and loved how she viewed her life

What about Genevieve Swallow’s performance did you like?

She was just amazing! Her variations of accents and how she read the story was captivating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - but as it was a bit long I wasn't able to!

Any additional comments?

I LOVED the three books in this trilogy - think Santa has spoilt me as I cant seem to find any others as good - so keep listening to them again and again.

Furious!

Disappointing end. How could the writer not finish the story. I felt I had wasted all these hours of listening. Absolutely furious!

Enjoyable, but disappointed end.

I thought the narrator was excellent, and enjoyed the story up until the last chapter. It was if the author just got fed up with it, and wanted to be finished. Twice I rewound the story, thinking I must have missed a chapter, but no. Very unsatisfactory.
