Summary

Ginny is forced to flee her job at the pie shop and the unwanted advances of the baker. Close to breaking point, her beauty leads her to become Lady's Maid to the difficult Miss Diana at Lamp Hill Hall. However, all Ginny wants is to find her brother.

How can you not love this book

Well written as always and well researched heart-warming stories with happy endings rags to riches with enough hesitation in there to make it interesting. I love the fact she uses similar settings and refers to things in other books whilst changing the direction of the story and the characters within.

Good narration with no squeaky characters in there and good intonation.

Looking forward to choosing my next easy read! Thank you Rosie!

Wonderful story, awful narrator

The story was so wonderful I couldn’t stop listening despite having to stop several times due to the bad narrator. She has a horrible whiney voice with a really annoying hiss at the end of her sentences. Almost ruined the book for me! Not sure if I’ll try any other Rosie Goodwin books as unfortunately they all have the same terrible narrator, which is a real shame as I bet they are fab!
