Summary

When Elsie and Bert Jones move with their children, Ann and Arthur, to Candle Lane, a modest street in Battersea, they miss their comfortable house in Wimbledon. But the move is the right thing to do, as it will enable Bert to finance his new removal business. They are a warmhearted family, and Elsie soon makes friends with her less fortunate neighbour, Ruth, and her daughter, Sally. But before long Elsie realises that all is not well in the house next door....

a cuckoo in candle lane

I love kitty neales books. I have read them all and Annie Aldington is my favourite narrator however I have read a book before with almost the exact same story so was disappointed and worse Annie seemed to have a problem with her mouth clicking again in this book as she has had in other books. overall was disappointed.

Cuckoo in Candle Lane

Thought the story was interesting, but as a Christian did not appreciate
the swearing, Could not therefore continue to listen to this book.
Will not listen to anymore of the books written by this Author

Brilliant, so enjoyable

I am struggling to listen to any other author or narrator, the fabulous combination of Kitty and Annie is just a little too addictive.
