Excellent performance

Would you consider the audio edition of Scarlet Ribbons to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version.

Would you be willing to try another book from Emma Blair? Why or why not?

I would try another Emma Blair book, I like the saga and that we stay with the characters for a long time throughout their lives.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

It's an easy listen, there isn't anything challenging here and there is an element of predictability about the plot, but I enjoyed the ride. It was interesting to learn a bit about Dr Barnados and the plight of young children.

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

I enjoyed it very much, nothing to complain about.

Any additional comments?

Eve Karpf's narration was excellent. She managed to change Sadie's accent so subtly throughout that you barely noticed her change from Scottish to Canadian, but by the end of the book she was transformed.
