    Story
    "Beautiful - A fine end to the story."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ballymara Road to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What about Emma Gregory’s performance did you like?

    I love her ability to make all the characters come alive & be easily recognisable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes - most certainly


    Any additional comments?

    The three books in this series have all been a real pleasure to listen to. The story lines weaving throughout all three are as real as her characters. I loved listening to them and no doubt will return to them again and again.
    Starting with the middle one of the three I didn't realise until I finished it and looked for more by the author. I then listened to The Four Streets followed by Hide Her Name - for a second time. When The Ballymara Road was published I decided to listen to Hide Her name again before listening to the final episode. BRILLIANT !

    I am a regular busy 50 something woman who really loves being able to listen to great stories while I am walking the dog or working at home.

    "There are three books in this series. This is the last one"

    Lovely three books but I would really like them to be marked as such. I did not notice and started with this one. After I bought the other two I had to relisten to this book, it made more sense the second time round after I had listened to the other two.

    Well read and a very beautiful sad, sometimes funny story.

    I loved the warmth of The of the neighbors for each other the humor . I have never listened to this Author before ,however I think she is my new favorite there is so much more to her books than I first thought . If you like sagas I thoroughly recommend these books about the four streets I've had a few late nights listening to these

    I love family sagas, like discovering different authors and escaping in a story, prefer listening while I do all the boring chores!
