Great dramatic reading! Engaging Story!

Narrator really made the characters believable and kept you engaged. Story was heart warming and heartbreaking with twists & turns along the way!

wonderful book

it always seems to take me a little bit to transition from one book to another. I started this book several times partly because I was not concentrating on what I was hearing. I have not listened to one of her books that I haven't loved. I believe a big part of that is because of the fabulous narrator.

Excellent story!!! Excellent storyteller!!!

What did you like most about The Blind Miller?

Catherine Cookson at her best. No-one can tell a story like her. Her main characters are always strong women standing alone in an era where 'MEN RULED' but never in her books!

What did you like best about this story?

How the story evolved keeping you wanting more. The strength of mind in thick and thin of the main character Sarah.

Have you listened to any of Susan Jameson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes I have and this one is one of her best. She brought the book to life! She is an excellent actress who, has a Geordie, is made to narrate Catherine Cookson's books.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A Magical Storyteller who never disappoints!

Any additional comments?

I wish more of Catherine Cookson's books were made in to listening ones. There are many people who love her books, and for one reason or another, cannot physically 'read' them and would be happy to 'read' them again. I also think there are a couple of generations who introduced to her books would quickly become addicts! So please would it be possible to bring more of her stories to Audible!

Excellent read

Brilliant bedtime read. Well, possibly not bedtime as I did, as I ended up having to read a bit more, then a bit more, and finally putting it down when I couldnt keep my eyes open any longer at two o'clock in the morning!
