Enjoyable story and wonderful narrator

Lovely story with nothing too explicit, which makes a refreshing change and a pleasant listen with family. Love this narrator too. With audiobooks, a tone of voice can ruin even the best book, so I now choose my book according to the narrator. Anne Dover is one of the best!

Rich girl, Poor girl

I. Love all Val Wood books, and Ann Dover helped to make it so good for me by the brilliant way she read the book. [She reads books so well, and puts so much into them].

Another brilliant listen

The combination of Val Wood’s imagination and Anne Dover’s interpretation does not disappoint. Another heartwarming story, beautifully resolved. Maybe there could be a sequel...
