Excellent narration

Not one of Catherine’s best but enjoyable nonetheless. Narrator is excellent. I’m hoping the next book in the series is as good as the first

What a conclusion!

Didn't think it would have been possible to enjoy as the 1st one but as it got going and I got back into the characters that I loved from 'The Mallen Streak' I was hooked and hoped for a conclusion which would befit the series and it definitely doesn't disappoint! only my 2nd Catherine Cookson book and shall be seeking advice from my mum for the next installment!
