"A glorious read." (Frost Magazine)
Tried for several hours to listen but there is nothing to hold your interest, no story, nothing to make you want to carry on so gave up. Narration boring which didn't help. Sorry but sending this one back.
The storyline was pretty predictable but nonetheless gripping and enjoyable enough. I did actually cry at one point which rarely happens. The description of work in the mine and at the frontline did get to me.
Like a good old fashioned story,or a true crime book. Something not drawn out or a slow storyline.
Other world war 1 family stories

Kept me enthralled throughout

Yes I would consider the audio edition of Easterleigh hall as the narrator had a wonderful gift for producing accents which related so well to each of the characters. I could have listened to her voice all day as it was so relaxing plus reading this book brought the characters alive so I was able to recognise each of the characters simply by the tone of her voice.
The whole book was memorable but for me was when the main character Evie stood up to those who tried to downgrade her, no matter what station they were in life she showed her strength of character in so many ways.
A very easy question to answer Evie Forbes she was a character who I wish I knew personally as she had a heart of gold yet she stood up for what she believed in.
There was a death in the mines, I will not spoil the read for other customers but how the author described each characters grief would have brought tears from the hardest of hearts.
This is simply one of the best listens I have so far received from Audible and now I am looking forward to the next book in the series,
