Rich girl, Poor girl

I. Love all Val Wood books, and Ann Dover helped to make it so good for me by the brilliant way she read the book. [She reads books so well, and puts so much into them].

Another brilliant listen

The combination of Val Wood’s imagination and Anne Dover’s interpretation does not disappoint. Another heartwarming story, beautifully resolved. Maybe there could be a sequel...
