A family saga spanning three generations, beginning in 1861, and ending in 1934. The story takes place in Derbyshire, England, and follows the lives of the Freeman and Lambert families.
Their lives were forever changed when a widow with seven children, married a widower with seven children. Three step sibling marriages are arranged to benefit from a dowry that was doubled by their filial unions. The way in which their lives intertwine is the grist for Twisted Trees.
It is a story of one man's ambition to rise above the oppressive class system, where men were judged by their heritage and not their ability; where women often endured loveless marriages rather than face the stigma of divorce.
Above all, it is Polly's story. A woman of great courage, who had the nerve to escape a cruel, loveless marriage, and fight for her children. Her love of family and family values have left a legacy that is still carried on today by her great-great-great grandchildren.

Yes I would listen to Twisted Trees again because with so much story I might have missed the old thing and would love to hear it again.
That it was a true story and just flowed along so well you just had to find out what was going to happen next.
