Although this book can be read independently it would be good to listen to Belle first as it adds to a very moving story.

Quite a good story, I do like the characters on the whole - but I have never known anyone to have such misfortune! As in the first book, Belle does really well, gets out of all manner of scrapes - them disaster happens - a bit over the top for me - I won't bother with anymore in the series

I could not understand the NZ accent and I’m from NZ which spoiled the performance for me.
Easily the worst narration Ive heard for a long time. The unneccessary pauses and stilted dialogue are so bad that everytime I came back to the novel I thought my app was glitching, having forgotten thats just how this insane narrator reads. Maybe it was editing with the weird pauses mid sentences but it is SO distracting. Also, her French accent is terrible.
Lesley Pearse's writing, amazing as always. Excellent attention to detail as per usual. However in this novel there's some unneccessary recapping of the first book (which you will really need to read before picking this up as even with all the recapping theres a few plotlines that aren't delved into properly in this book) right up until the last paragraph!
Some stilted dialogue and over explaining of early 1900s social norms takes you out of the moment occassionaly as well as some in depth battle discussions about WW1, though these are interesting otherwise. She has definately done some major research for this book and the story is all the richer for it.
Great escape, if you can get past the truely rubbish narration.
