A mother's grace

Loved the story but sadly the narrator really dragged the words and made me cringe a few times with the ending of her words. Sadly coming from Nuneaton myself would hate to think my voice was like hers

Another amazing book in this fantastic series.

After losing her father Madolin decides to get married to one of the regular visitors to his parish Judge Kettle in order to be financially secure despite her Aunt Gerty being willing to give her a home. However it turns out that Judge Kettle is not the nice man he seems to be, he insists on him and his wife sharing separate rooms despite being man and wife and only wanted her so he could have a child. It turns out Gerty knows something about Judge Kettle which makes her dislike him although we don't know what this is or that she knew from the start until much later in the story. Judge Kettle and the family then move to his late Uncles house in Nuneaton where Madolin becomes friendly with the staff who work there. When there daughter grace is born Judge kettle won't let his daughter out of his site and hates it when the little girl spends time with her mother or anyone else, Madolin at this point is ill due to a heart condition that was detected as she was giving birth to grace. Grace however loves her mother very much and is starting to worry about the way her father is towards her. On a visit to Wales to visit Madolin's aunt she makes friends with a Local girl Mavanoi who unfortunately dies of Scarlett fever which Grace also contracts and only just survives. One night Judge Kettle enter's graces room and attempts to make advances toward his Daughter however Madolin and Mable the made assist her and Judge kettle is attacked with a candle stick, we don't find out the real truth of what happened until later in the story. Judge Kettle is now bedridden after a stroke which happened during his attack on Grace and Madolin takes charge and sends grace back to Wales to live with her aunt. When Madolin passes away and Grace comes home from the Funeral she suddenly realises that she wants to become a Nun so on her return to Wales she enters into the local convent which she's visited when she's been visiting Gerty and attended the services there. Grace struggles to adapt to convent life and starts feeling guilty about this and when she meats the local priest Father Luke it causes her to question her faith and cross a dangerous line. The book was narrated by Charlie Sanderson as all of the series is on Audible and she's fantastic with the narration. Although this book is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone novel, Only the first two books Mothering Sunday and Little angel need to be read in sequence as the characters overlap.

interesting

I very much enjoyed the story although it took a while to get into it, but I was deeply disappointed with the narrator's pronunciation of Welsh words, very poor INDEED!!
