Ruby tells the story of The Family, from the day at the end of the 19th century when a travelling French photographer catches frail beautiful Alice and her children, like flowers in amber, to the startling, witty, and memorable events of Ruby's own life.

I think this is so well written and really evocative of the fifties which is when I was born. Diana Quick narrates this so well. I debated which version to buy as there is also one narrated by Susan Jameson which is much longer and I can't work out why as both versions were unabridged.
An interesting story with twists and turns to keep surprising you and a story really well told.
There were moments that moved me but not one in particular
Listen to it!
Diana Quick has captured every nuance of the terrific writing of Kate Atkinson. I have read Atkinson's books, but Diana Quick brings the writing to glorious life.
A lovely book. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The narrator is excellent and brings the story to life. If you ever lived in Yorkshire (I did) then it brings back memories.
