Based on a true story during and post WW2, with a fascinating connection between country NSW and high fashion in Paris. From great tragedy life unfolds in unpredictable ways.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.

An interesting family story through the generations from convict days to present times in Sydney. Historical milestone events woven in such as WW1, the Sydney Harbour bridge opening. At times the generations in the middle became a little confusing trying to achieved too much into one book. It could have easily been a trilogy of books. Great story. Probably of more interest to Sydney people as the places mentioned are so familiar to us.

A most enjoyable book with interesting twists and some unexpected turns. Colourful characters involved in modern day relationships and family situations. I loved it. Never boring, kept me interested and keen to know what mystery would be revealed. I’m now a follower of Lucinda Riley and eager for another one of her books.

Loved listening to this story. Fascinating pictures painted of life before independence in India and the British Way of life and privilege. I found it spell binding. Sorry when it ended.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful old English Christmas story. It was the perfect length being a short story around Christmas.

Once again an enjoyable Kate Morton novel. This one very interesting but tended to get a bit weary of the the constant time changes stepping back in time from the present.

So glad I listened to this book. Historically very interesting about the adaptation a young English girl was faced with as she made a new life in the USA and her involvement helping runaway slaves to escape. To a quilter like me who quilted while I listened it had a special charm as Honor the main character mentions the quilts she works on and the significance of quilts in her life during the 1800’s.

Wonderful story
