I have just finished listening to "For A Fathers Pride" by the same author & loved it, so purchased this follow on book. I couldn't make out why the one other reviewer left a one star rating as Diane Allen is an excellent story teller. However now I'm listening to this I think I know why!
Tobias who we met in the previous book is born & bred in Yorkshire, so are his parents, & in the previous book they all spoke with a Yorkshire accent. In this novel he speaks posh! While all those around him continue to speak with a Yorkshire accent. The voice is driving me nuts & I can no longer listen to it.
The narrator has obviously not read the previous novel, & just because someone is Lord of the manner doesn't mean they speak with a plum in their mouth. The previous Lord of the manner didn't !
I'm unfortunately returning this, & going the read the novel on kindle instead as this I'm sure a great novel.
