    "Silly"

    Dreadfully soggy characters. The main narrator was good, but the secondary one was awful - sounded far too young for the part.

    "Lovely story nicely read"

    A really nice story. A bit predictable but what chick lit isn't? Likeable characters and very well read by Emma Gregory who has a lovely soothing voice. Recommended.

    "A pleasant holiday read"

    A pleasant holiday read, read well. I did cry at a couple of points. I found Saskia mildly annoying. The past & present stories were handled well, paced so that both progressed & neither felt neglected.

    "It was so good"

    I really enjoyed this book. It was written well and narrated well...
    I like the fact that the sex that when on I'm the book it was referred to but it didn't go into details but very reader knew what was going on , I think that makes a nice change in books today ??

    "Enjoyable but predictable"

    Pleasurable listen, interesting and undemanding, if a little predictable. Would recommend for a relaxing read.

    "Gal's Own Romance, dustily"

    Suppose it is trying for intellectual historical novel but pulls off very reserved chicklit. Ok if you like that sort of thing and maybe you went to girls' boarding school to appreciate a sort of cosy propriety. Unfortunately the cliches in the language and descriptions defeated me by halfway.
    The performance has a pace that suits it, it did send me to sleep effectively as bedtime reading - was it that i missed some drama? Decided not to hang in there any longer.
