"Most enjoyable audio book."
I really enjoyed this book. It is set in the Englitsh Midlands in the 1800s when children and adults worked long hours in the mill or mine for. low wages. Fortunate to be part of a happy though poor family, Marianne 's strong character comes to the fore when an incident at the mill sets her on a path that will change her life. She is presented with many challenges as the story progresses and will need every ounce of courage she possesses. I absolutely loved the narration by Charie Sanderson. She has a real gift for storytelling and her ability to use regional accents is so good. She certainly did justice to Rosie Goodwin 's lovely book.
If the book had been read by a different narrator. Charlie read the book las if it was a child's story book,. I have over a hundred audio books and this is the worst narration. I have given up and will request a refund.
Not sure I did not complete the book.
Most definitely not.
love it one of the best book i ever heard in a long time good story
Narrator was not good like a child reading to you it became hard to listen to
Couldn't stop listening to the book had to hear the whole story would recommend it to any one else to hear it
