quite boring sequel

After the first novel, this one was disapointing. There was almost no character developement. Characters are either good or bad without change. Evie turns into a WWI super woman without any flaws, quite boring and annoying. Most of the excitement seems to have been spent in the first novel. Moments that could have been dramatic were skipped or only mentioned. Also even more predictable than part one.

Disappointing

Would you try another book written by Margaret Graham or narrated by Katy Sobey?

Not narrated by Katy Sobey.

What was most disappointing about Margaret Graham’s story?

Could not understand her at times because of the accent.

How could the performance have been better?

Change the narrator

Was Easterleigh Hall At War worth the listening time?

Parts of the story was OK but I would have like to have had more story lines to do with the people at the Hall.

Any additional comments?

No
