Publisher's Summary

A brand-new festive listen from Rosie Clarkes' best-selling Mulberry Lane series.

1949. Peggy and Able Ronoscki's seaside cafe in Devon is thriving, and their twins, Fay and Freddie, are growing up fast.

To pursue her daughter’s destiny, Fay must train in London, and Peggy is faced with a dilemma of moving the family back to London once more.

Meanwhile, Peggy’s elder daughter, Janet, has her own troubles. She fears her husband is having an affair and is desperately unhappy.

Peggy is torn two ways and can only hope that a reunion with her friends at Christmas can help resolve her problems.

Love the series not so much the narrator

Love this series and story but don’t like the narrator. It’s irritating to have some of the characters speak like babies and words with R being pronounced with a W.

The new Narrator has ruined this for me

Great follow on from book 6 and wonderful to be reunited with the Characters again.
However, there is a different Narrator this time around and is awful. Accents are all over the place, Gordon sounds like a halfwit, and for some reason leaves long gaps in between words as if they were talking to someone who didn’t understand English.
I have already checked and the next book, Stormy days, unfortunately has the same Narrator.
I am really surprised it wasn’t checked before being released.

Avoid audio as dreadful narrating spoils the story

I have given performance 1 as I cannot give zero. I could not really give full marks for the story as I could not listen to the full book due to the dreadful narrating. Some of the characters sounded dreadful, dull/slow/whiney which completely changed their characters from the previous books. A story completely spoiled, I now need to buy the book so I can finish the book as I loved the previous books from this series.

Continuity and narration spoil it :(

loved the series but issues with narrators spoil the continuity and flow of the books! Good story though. Somewhat predictable but it didn't spoil the story. I can't understand how some characters suddenly sounded dull and dim! Others lost their west country accents.... strong women suddenly sounded flighty and wishy washy! Surely if you can't get the original narrator, the new narrator should listen to at least a few sections of previous books so as to get a feel for the existing characters! Shame as the actual stories where enjoyable... I did find myself exasperated at the poor pauses, disjointed sentences and lack of story telling... the shouty telephone conversations made me want to fast forward! Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I'd read it rather than listened to it?!

Another fantastic trip down Mulberry Lane.

I love Mulberry Lane and the various characters and this story did not disappoint. However, the narrator made listening to it increasingly difficult. All of the characters spoke exactly the same. Almost like they had some speech difficulties and had to pause between each word. It was hard to work out which character was speaking because of the monotone voice used and the same way of speaking. I'm pretty sure American Able didn't speak exactly like Cockney Tom. And I'm pretty sure cockney Tom would have had an actual cockney accent much like Able would have sounded American. The awful narration (only when voicing the characters....the other bits were narrated beautifully) was a real down side for me and by the end of the audiobook, I was so distracted by it I was struggling to focus on the story. The book itself is a 10/10 though and I'd definitely recommend!

Really terrible narator

I just can’t listen any longer; I’ve got to chapter4 but the narator is so bad! Not only do some of voices she does sound ridiculous, one but she keeps pausing half way or just before the end of a sentence. It’s really difficult to listen to her, I’m sending this book back. I have listened to all the other books in this series but I just can’t continue with this one.

Big Mistake

Why choose Polly Edsell to do the reading of the final 3 volumes of this series?
Her range of voices is far from impressive and her rendition of Maureen makes her sound like a half-wit rather than the mature lady she has become.
I will avoid any book with her as narrator in the future. A great PITY.

Shameful Narration

Spoiled by narrator. Such a shame that these books are being spoiled by the ever changing accents of the characters in the stories. They're just spoiled by Polly I'm afraid to say. The characters do not have the same once throughout the series. The stories are fabulous though. Well done Rosie I love your stories.
