Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Rain Before it Falls written by Jonathan Coe, read by Jenny Agutter.
'What I want you to have, Imogen, above all, is a sense of your own history; a sense of where you come from, and of the forces that made you.'
Rosamund lies dying in her remote Shropshire home. But before she does so, she has one last task: to put on tape not just her own story but the story of the young blind girl, her cousin's granddaughter, who turned up mysteriously at her party all those years ago. This is a story of generations, of the relationships within a family - and of what goes to make a child."

Jenny Agutter read this evocative novel beautifully and it is a neat device for telling a story. Unfortunately the editors have jumped the recordings in such a way that some of
the chapters start immediately at the end of the previous one so there’s no chance to draw breath I think if you recording something like this you need to get it right
