In the beginning I wondered whether this was a book for me but before I knew it, Allegra had won my heart. A story that brought life well and truly into focus, how short it is and how we sometimes squander it. Engaging narrator, thank you.

A thoughtful book

Having already listened to Lilac Girls which was one of the most amazing books I have ever read/listened to, I wondered if this book would be confusing given it precedes the era of Lilac Girls but it is a stand alone story that gives the reader an insight into one of the main characters in Lilac Girls, Caroline Ferraday.
The narration is very good.

Must admit I almost returned this book after 3 chapters but decided to plow on. It wasn't a bad read, certainly relatable when I remembered my own mothers demise.

I almost gave up on this book about half way through but it is worth staying on, even when it ends you aren't sure it is over!

While this was quite an interesting story, the narration made it impossible to listen for any length of time as it was a strange mix of slow-mo interspersed with a kind of chuckle! I had to work hard to finish this book and almost gave up several times.

I have loved all of Liane's books, listened to them multiple times but this one? I didn't care at all about any of the characters whereas other books have had such relatable and endearing (though sometimes frustrating) characters. I don't think the narration had anything to do with my lack of response, Marsha is so annoying a character that her voice just ends up grating. Waiting on the next book...no pressure Liane!

Great narrator!

This is a terrific story along with Richard Armitage's performance makes for a great book. Found it very visual, like watching an episode of Shetland!

These books are so entertaining, having been to India the descriptions of the surrounds, smells and quirks take me right back there and Ganesh is such a star. More please Vaseem!

I have listened to both Carrie and Debbie's books but it was a joy to hear Todd's account of their lives. He is a great narrator, I felt as though I was in the room lounging around listening to his story. An amazing family.
