Loved the format of the story. Very cleverly done. Was fantastic having Ann does playing Aunt Lydia. Really ties up the end of the handmaid’s tale.

Awesome period romance/gothic mystery

Really loved this story. It is a little slow in the first half but once it got going couldn't stop listening. The narration is absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend this. Also watched the 1940 movie which was good but not nearly as good as this.

Believed!

What a harrowing and brave story. It is unbelievable that Margaret could survive this. She deserves everyone’s thanks for having the guts to live this life and tell her story. Really sympathetically read too. I loved it and hope people will listen to/read this very important story.

Beautiful, historical, informative

So sad to have finished this wonderful adventure. Juliet Stevenson is a treat to listen to. I will no doubt enjoy listening again in the future. Thank you!

Just completed the last of these novels - so sad I've finished. A truly wonderful journey. I personally thought the narrator did an amazing job. These will be a hard act to follow. Intelligent, insightful, historically interesting period - I loved learning more about Italy and Naples especially.

Has it all!

A beautiful story - mystery combined with wonderful portrayal of country town life and characters to love and hate. Totally recommend!

I saw the television production and really enjoyed it but thought this audiobook was pretty ghastly. Did not like the narration at all - I will avoid her in the future. I think that was what really put me off the whole thing. As a previous reviewer said, the characters seemed to bear no resemblance to those fabulous ones in Pride & Prejudice - insipid and dull. Really struggled to get through it, although it was a good sedative.

I loved this - so beautifully written, and an engaging tale with fantastic characters throughout. Wish I could do it all again!

It was quite enjoyable - but the comparisons to Jane Austen are a bit of a stretch! I found it predictable and bit long-winded but it passed the time.

Lots of laughs

Really enjoyed this. Well drawn characters and laugh out loud moments. Very light and easy to listen to.
