It is early spring in 1944, and Allied troops will soon invade northern France. Alice Todd is beginning her second year as warden of a Land Army hostel located in the wilds of Devonshire.
Here she has won the affection and confidence of the girls in her charge and found herself caught up in lives which are complex, humorous, and sometimes tragic.

2nd Verse same as the first

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I love the characters and wanted to spend more time with each of them, but I felt like too much of the story was recapping the first book. I wish there would have been more time spent on the development an progression of the story and characters.

What do you think your next listen will be?

My next listen was the 3rd book, and sadly I found the repetition to be similar.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Interest.

2nd book well worth the listen :0)

Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl at the Farmhouse Gate to be better than the print version?

2nd book well worth the listen :0)

Was a little put off after a previous review, but glad I ignored it and purchased the 2nd book! Yes it did repeat the story's chacters,but only to remind you of the story so far.

Off to purchase the 3rd instalment now! Can't wait.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl at the Farmhouse Gate?

Lots of different parts, Hester and Rubens story, Mabel and verdys Saturday night rituals, to even georgie coming to her senses with Christopher and Mrs crackers cheeky banter.

What about Patience Tomlinson’s performance did you like?

I love the ease of listening to her stories and voices so relaxing!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes I have laughed and punched the air in parts, but also shed a tear or two!

Any additional comments?

Hate gwenannes chacter, she really grates on me!
