A truly delightful story of Edwardian England.

Rosie Clarke writes beautifully about a poignant time in British history, the story introduces wonderful, lifelike characters, each portrayed, perfectly by the beautiful voice of Juliette Burton…. I really hope that these two ladies will have more storylines ready for us to enjoy! The book is easy listening but also thought provoking as Rosie Clarke brings wonderful characters to life, peppered with historical facts, that have greatly affected all of our lives in the 21st century. I finished this brilliant story wanting to know… what happens next to these brilliant characters… hope I’m not kept waiting too long! Fantastic !

Narration

Whenever Maggie spoke the narrator had an annoying habit of lowering her voice so quiet you had a job to hear her sentences at times

Very slow starter

I returned this book after listening for about 2 hours.
I appreciate that the scene needs to be set but, the continuing, inane conversations of the protagonist and her friends bored me. Maybe the story improves if you stick with it but it wasn’t for me.

A good story

Some loose end not tied up. Sometimes too many stories melding together, overall pleasant listen. An easy book to listen to. Probably need to listen to it quite consistently as a lot of different character tales

Sorry, I did not finish it.

I just couldn't get into it. So I had to give up. Also 1 of the girls voices was so low I couldn't hear it.
