I absolutely loved listening to this book. It was truly wonderful. June's voice plays each character so well. It is a very moving tale. It was the most memorable story I have heard since joining audible. Thank you.

At first I was a bit disappointed in my purchase thinking this book nothing more than fluff, but then suddenly I found myself invested in the characters and curiously caring about their circumstances. For me the narration made the story - fluff or not. I doubt anyone else could have drawn me in. Before I knew it, I was extending my walks just a little further . . . I may just chance another book by this author provided the same narrator is on board.

I loved this story for it's easy listening style and many threads that eventually came together. I felt I knew the house and the characters well and didn't want to say goodbye to them. It is not a taxing tale in any way and may be too slow moving for many people, but brought to me cosy feelings of sitting around a fire with my family while someone read a book to us.

This is a really good story but I'm afraid I won't be buying anything else narrated by June Barrie. I'm sure she's a perfectly lovely woman but she is so terribly, terribly 'posh'. Every single character is endowed with the same 'well-bred gels' accent it's like listening to a BBC drama from the 1940s. Shame as I really enjoyed the story but the narration really spoilt it for me.
