Summary

Hard times ahead for the Harpers girls....

It is two years since Harpers opened in Oxford Street and Ben is planning to expand the premises.

Life is good for Sally and Ben as they look forward to their first child and hope for a prosperous future. Beth is settling into married life with Jack, gradually recovering from her aunt’s tragic death, though still unable to conceive a child.

New girls have joined Harpers and Marion, Janice and Becky all become a part of the daily life at the busy store. Rachel is undecided whether to marry a man she isn’t sure she can trust, while Minnie meets an old love.

The sun is shining in English streets but on the horizon dark clouds gather over Europe and war looms threatening, bringing rainy days for the Harpers girls....

Loved the story

So annoying all these different accents, really made me not want to listen, also completely different voices and accents to the characters in the other two books. Spoilt it for me

Terrible narrator!

The narrator was didn’t know the characters. We listen to 18 years old girls talking like a 40 year old. And women in their forties and a suffragette (Rachel) speaking like a little girl. Even more irritating is the voice of Minnie: she has a speech impediment!
Please don’t use the same narrator on the next book of the series!
Juliette Burton did a very good job!
