The detail provided on each page made this story easy to picture. I felt as if I were there in the village with the characters. This story was about a young woman and a woman in the sunset years. It helped me to understand my elderly mother's life, her present day trials, and the tribulations as she grows older. It was beautifully written with loving care given to each of the main characters. The only distraction I found was the American accents. Affluent people in the U.S. do not speak as the reader portrayed them and not all of them would have New York accents (even if they come from New York.) Since I am an American, it did bother me but every other word was said by the narrator as I think the author would wish, so I would not want a narrator change. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will look for others by this author and narrator.
Poor old Clarissa, so many losses !! surely at least one character could have stuck around. As the list of deceased lengthened, I began to wonder if Erica James had run out of ideas , didn't know quite where to go with these characters so sent them on their way via the coffin shuttle. 62 chapters of dreariness

Would you try another book written by Erica James or narrated by Genevieve Swallow?
I have now tried at least half a dozen times to listen to this but the narrators appallingly bad accents just ruins it if she thinks she can do a Norfolk accent please disabuse her of this it was just irritating and at times she forgets which a cent shes meant to be using. I think the story feels as though it would be great but Ill never know
What did you like best about this story?
Would you be willing to try another one of Genevieve Swallow’s performances?
Was The Song of the Skylark worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
I will make sure I never buy another audio book with this narrator
