What was one of the most memorable moments of Girl in the Blue Coat?
there were many but I particularly appreciated the discussion following the ending.
Have you listened to any of Natalia Payne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Natalia was amazing. Pronouncing the Dutch words and making the story so vivid. I have not listened to her narrations before
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I was on a cruise in Tahiti so I listened at night. But I am on my second listening.
Any additional comments?
Thank you Monica for falling in love with the Dutch and presenting such a tumultuous time so well and powerfully.

Another reviewer did provide a spoiler for this book. Without reiterating it, I thoroughly understand why things unfolded the way they did. I enjoyed the author's sense of character, time and place. Her characters were mostly young people, trying to navigate a world at war, at an age when you think everything should be black and white and they realize, too late, that there's so many shades of gray.
I love the characters, their bravery, their cowardice... it's a young adult novel that will appeal to adults. The writing sucks you in and won't let go, the narration is good (with some imprecise dialogue and slightly-off accents). Well worth your time and credit.
