I'm so glad it was a woman reading the story, it suits Di's books so much better.
As always the description of the land and the people are magnificent.
Despite the hardships it is still a feel good story and I was so disappointed it had finished.
Until the next one, thanks Di!
"Another good story by a wonderful storyteller"
An enjoyable story by a master of the family saga stories. Always meticulously researched and written well to draw in the reader/listener. My only complaint would be that I wish the narrator would have researched the correct pronunciation for Spokane. The rest of the narration was spot on but it grinded the wrong way every time she said "Spoke-ane" rather than "Spoke-Ann"
