It makes me laugh when I hear folks think Molly and I rushed into things too fast, spouting that we couldn't possibly have felt what we did for each other in such a short space of time. I say, how the hell would they know? We made it, didn't we? She became my whole life, didn't she? And as for my folks not being real, being true? Tell that to me aged 10, 11, 12 - damn, all my bastard life - when I was never enough, when I was beaten until I bled for being too good at football and not being everything they'd dreamed.

I absolutely loved reading Sweet Rome on my kindle, so I thought its been a while I'll listen to it on Audible. What a mistake! No thought has gone into researching the accent for Molly. She is an educated girl from Durham, not a lady that has been brought up in Buckingham Palace or has a nanny called Mary Poppins. The accent that was used for Rome was spot on, but it pained me to listen to the story with the terrible female accents. Really disappointed and its such a shame as the story is fan-flippin-tastic.
