Publisher's Summary

There was no money, the family was scattered, and Lucille, who had mothered them all since she was 16, was going to be married. So the house must be sold; Lucille knew that was the only sensible things to do, but the family had other ideas.
Home they came by whatever way they could, penniless and bedraggled but with certain newfound friends who were to help them to upset Lucille's plans - all her plans for a calm, settled, and sensible life.

Fabulous story, fabulous choice of narrator!

[{ "answer" : "That narrator brought part one of the Wayne family trilogy to life for me. I'm very grateful. I'm sure to be listening to this book again, (like I've listened to all my Audible DE Stevenson's) two or three times.

I have a couple of hundred Audible books and Stevie Zimmerman rates up the top along with Barbara Rosenblat, Kate Reading, Tanya Eby, Lorelei King, Suzanne Toren, George Guidall, Juliet Stevenson, Diana Bishop, and ALL the D E Stevenson narrators.

So much fun!

Would you listen to The Lark Shall Sing again? Why?

I have already listened to it again. It's just a happy story and the recording is lovely.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lark Shall Sing?

So many fun moments in this book. Love the humor and irony.

Which scene was your favorite?

When all the kids arrive home. :-)

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

Oh yes!

Any additional comments?

All of us who are fans of Elizabeth Cadell have been hoping for these books to be released in both digital and audio! So glad to see it happening so that new generation of readers can read/hear these fun stories.
