Really enjoyable story

This is an 'unturnable off' story with thoroughly believable characters. It's an unusual setting in a stained glass workshop where a window is being restored. There's an historical element too related through a diary about how the window was first commissioned and built. Also a strong musical element, the main character, Fran is a tuba player.

The narration is excellent with each voice being instantly recognizable for who it's meant to be.

Easy listening but well written and read. Highly recommended

Lovely!

Yet another good story from Rachel Hore. As usual, there is an interweaving of past and present with everything coming to a satisfactory, if somewhat expected, conclusion. Her historical information is spot on, and the description of Elgar`s "Dream of Gerontius" and the rehearsals, flows nicely. She`s obviously done her research!

However, Jilly Bond has to be THE most annoying narrator ever. Her voice is constantly full of emotion, yet her reading and interpretation of the characters is both emotion and passionless. In future, for me, Rachel Hore`s novels will have to be on the printed page unless narrated by someone else!!
