Poor old Clarissa, so many losses !! surely at least one character could have stuck around. As the list of deceased lengthened, I began to wonder if Erica James had run out of ideas , didn't know quite where to go with these characters so sent them on their way via the coffin shuttle. 62 chapters of dreariness
I listened to this book whilst gardening and sewing. The story weaves together easily whilst touching on real life issues such as dementia.
Very easy to listen too and kept me wanting to find it how all the characters lives turned out. Don't be out off by other reviews saying the accents were bad, I actually found them endearing.
Erica James has surpassed herself with this one. it is a truly beautiful written novel. I could almost believe I was there.
Narrators accents are also excellent
I have read all ericia james books. This was my first ever audiobook, I found this quite moving book , from start to end . A great listen I completed it in 3 nights !
The characters are really brought to life

My first Erica James book and it won't be my last, I loved this story & all it's characters. I wish it could have been told over more books, I loved travelling back in time. Stayed awake late last night just to finish, so good. 😍
Lovely story. I really felt like I knew Clarissa and the narrator was the best I've ever listened to.
