Not the usual & an insight into something I didn't know about

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

This is a book that steps away from Annie Murray's normal writing, dealing with a more modern issues and the issues of Bhopal after the tragic 1984 event.
Yes there is a bit of history thrown in, and without wanting to spoil it, it acts as a reminder we should talk to our elders about their memories before its to late to do so.
Even though it does step away from the 'norm' it is still a wonderful, heartfelt and thought provoking book as you'd expect from Murray.

Fantastic

I saw this as an advert on the start up screen on my kindle, read the 'blog' and thought it sounded ok. Well now I've listened to it ok is not the right word at all so I'll to change it to fantastic.
It's hard to liken it to another book as it is such a refreshing change, instead of the male hero's and quiet women that are normal portrayed in books of this time (1800's) it is flipped around, throw in the fact of the normal structure of upstairs folk and downstairs servants is also given a good shame around it makes for a very interesting listen, so much so I got the whole series!

Having listened to the book before this, I was looking forward to re aquating myself with the charecters. I was not disappointed. This book carries on the story and brings us to follow then into the war (world war one). Murray's writing brings to life the tragedy of war and how deeply it can effect a family.
