An excellent read
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are believable and engaging and the book paints an interesting picture of life in Glasgow in Victorian times. It was also very clearly and expressively read. I would thoroughly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the final book in the trilogy. It is a pity that the two other books Aunt Belle and The Hayburns are not available as audiobooks read by the same narrator.
